Guam’s deer hunting season extended to Jan 30, 2021

128

Department of Agriculture’s Division of Aquatic and Wildlife Resources (DAWR) will extend the current deer hunting season to January 30, 2021 with no additional costs to hunters.

DAWR says valid hunting licenses are required.

Hunting is permitted on Government of Guam properties as well as private property, with the landowner’s written permission.

A current FY 2020 hunting license is required. Only those licensed will be authorized to hunt. To limit public interactions, new hunting licenses will be sold by appointment only.

Hunters will not be required to use deer tags. The regulation will be suspended for this season in order to ease the financial obligation of paying for tags.

The Department says all social distancing measures must be followed. Hunting groups should be limited in size to a maximum congregation of five people, in compliance with Executive Order 2020-36. During hunting outings, wear personal protective equipment to keep yourself safe. Keep a distance of six feet or more between yourself and anyone else.

For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 735-0289/82/91/94 or email DAWR at dawr@doag.guam.gov
