Youth Pheasant Hunt Saturday, November 1; Extra Afternoon Birds To Be Stocked

October 28, 2014

The NJDEP's Division of Fish and Wildlife, in cooperation with the NJ State Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs, is conducting the annual Youth Pheasant Hunt this Saturday, November 1, 2014. The hunt is part of the Division's Take a Kid Hunting program which provides opportunities for young hunters to learn and experience hunting in a non-competitive atmosphere prior to the regular season opening day.

Registration for the morning's guided hunts has closed, but the following Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) will re-open to self-guided hunting at 1:00 p.m. No registration is necessary for the self-guided hunt, but only those possessing a Youth Hunting License may hunt. The hunt will take place on the following areas:

Black River
Colliers Mills
The Division is pleased to announce that the areas will be restocked with additional birds after the guided hunts in the morning conclude. The freshly stocked WMAs will reopen at 1:00 p.m. for youth hunters. All birds are reared at the Division of Fish and Wildlife's Rockport Pheasant Farm.

Those not registered for a guided hunt in the morning will still have plenty of shot opportunities in the afternoon. The Division recognizes how busy the sport and school schedules are for today's youth. Having this opportunity to hunt these extra birds in the afternoon makes bird hunting for all of our youth more accessible.

Remember, all youth must have a valid Youth Hunting License and be under the direct supervision of a non-hunting licensed adult. The daily bag limit of two birds of either sex still applies.

The Flatbrook and Glassboro WMAs will be open all day beginning at 8:00 a.m. youth hunters. Both of these locations will also receive additional birds.

Additional information on other hunting opportunities through the Division's Take A Kid Hunting Program is available at on the Division's site.
