-- The Delaware DNREC Division of Fish & Wildlife is now accepting applications for its annual low-number hunting license lottery on June 1.
The lottery will be held at the Richardson & Robbins Building in Dover to issue 20 available low-number Delaware hunting licenses with numbers less than 1,000.
Licenses will be awarded to the selected applicants starting with the lowest and ending with the highest number via a live drawing. The lottery is open to the public.
Successful applicants do not need to be present to win; they will be notified by mail.
The low-numbered licenses:
* Will be assigned permanently to the successful applicant.
* Applicants must be at least 15 years of age, and not older than 64 years of age on July 1, 2010.
* License holders will be notified annually by mail for renewal.
* License is not transferable by the selected applicant to any individual.
Individuals who currently hold a low numbered license are not eligible for the lottery.
To be considered, an applicant must submit one and only one postcard either by mail or hand-delivered to the Richardson & Robbins building in Dover.

Include the following information on the reverse side of the postcard: applicant name, street address, city, state, zip code and phone number.
