Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge to Close for Deer Hunt
Federal officials say the public use area of Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge in eastern Susex County, Delaware will be closed later this month to allow for a deer hunt.
Officials say the public use area, which includes the visitor contact station, will be closed all day on Jan. 21.
Officials also are reminding outdoorsmen that only lottery selected and permitted hunters will have access to the headquarters area.
Prime Hook is a 10,144 acre refuge located on the west shore of the Delaware Bay, approximately 22 miles southeast of the state capital Dover, and 64 miles southeast of Wilmington.
