Cape Henlopen State Park managed deer hunt Jan. 24

DOVER – DNREC’s Division of Parks & Recreation announced today that a section of Cape Henlopen State Park will be closed to accommodate a managed deer hunt taking place Thursday, Jan. 24.

The park’s main entrance will be closed for the DNREC-managed hunt, meaning bay and ocean beaches north of Herring Point cannot be accessed by park visitors during this hunt. The Gordons Pond area and lands on the west side of the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal will be open as usual.

The managed deer hunt is meant to reduce the deer herd in and around the park, and to lessen environmental impacts on rare plant species and plant communities at Cape Henlopen.
