Federal shutdown closes refuges to hunting

Hunters planning on going out to the Bombay Hook and Prime Hook wildlife areas need to think again.

The federal shutdown has led to the closing of these national lands.

Public access to those areas will remain suspended until Congress passes a federal budget or continuing resolution funding government programs.

Until then Delaware's state-owned wildlife areas remain available for all activities.
