We have received a large volume of phone calls in the Department in the last few days from applicants enquiring about their deer hunting licences. We started issuing the licences this week and we expect that most calls have been prompted by some applicants receiving their licences. As most of the staff working on these applications are working remotely they are not in a position to take phone calls. We have published a note on the NPWS website on the current position – https://www.npws.ie/news/deer-hunting-applications
I would appreciate if you could bring it to the attention of your members.
