Additional Pheasants To Be Stocked
December 21, 2017
The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife will be stocking an additional 4,500 pheasants for hunters on the final three stocking dates in December. Most of the birds were raised at the Rockport Pheasant Farm.
The Division had already committed to stocking 45,000 during its regular stocking season, and the additional birds will bring the total stocked for the 2017 season close to the 50,000 target number.
These additional 4,500 birds will be distributed statewide, utilizing the new New Jersey's Pheasant Allocation Formula during the final three days of the current stocking season. The current plan is to allocate the additional birds for the following dates:
- Saturday, December 23
- Thursday, December 28
- Saturday, December 30
