New forestland restricted from hunting About 371 acres of newly ac quired forestland at Redden State Forest is restricted from any and all forms of permitted hunting for the duration of the current 2014-15 season. In effect, these ar- eas will function as safety zones until the surveyed boundaries are mapped and updated for inclu- sion on the current tract maps for Redden State Forest. This policy is in accordance with existing State Forest Regulations under the Delaware Code. The announcement on the hunting restrictions, made in re- sponse to public inquiries about the status of the new properties, is based on the determination that forestry personnel will not be able to properly mark and delineate the correct boundaries of the new forestland.
