Delaware Hunter Trapper Registration System Wins National Award

Business Wire


The Interactive Media Council, Inc. (IMC) has selected Delaware’s Hunter Trapper Registration Web application as the recipient of its Outstanding Achievement Award. The IMC is a nonprofit organization comprised of leading Web content professionals.

The mobile-friendly Hunter Trapper Registration system (HTR) allows hunters and trappers to obtain required Harvest Information Program (HIP) numbers, License Exempt Numbers (LEN), manage deer registration and snow goose permits, report snow goose harvests, and retrieve lost registration and permit numbers.

“We’ve heard very positive feedback from our hunters about how easy and convenient it is to use the HTR system. From an agency perspective, we’ve definitely noticed fewer calls come in from individuals having problems trying to register a deer harvest or obtain a permit since we started using the new system. It’s a win-win for everyone,” said Matt DiBona, wildlife biologist with the Delaware Division of Fish and Wildlife.

The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) Division of Fish and Wildlife, the agency sponsor for this online system, succeeded in their goals to improve the user experience for hunters and trappers in the field, as well as to capture accurate data in real-time for the agency. Users may access it by a mobile device, computer, or by calling and speaking to a representative who will log the information.

Last season, the HTR system processed thousands of registrations for hunters and trappers, including nearly 15,000 deer registrations. HTR was designed with a mobile-first approach, enabling its use on smartphones and tablets, as well as laptops and desktop computers. DNREC’s goal of offering services both online and on mobile devices makes HTR relevant and convenient to those who love the outdoors and need access in the field.

The Hunter Trapper Registration system is a collaborative effort between the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control Division of Fish and Wildlife, the Government Information Center, and Delaware Interactive, LLC.
