Semi-wild Hunting Season for Pheasant, Quail and Partridge Extended

Acting on requests from licensed semi-wild hunting clubs, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protectionís Division of Fish and Wildlife extended the semi-wild hunting season for pheasant, quail and partridge until April 4, 2004. The season was scheduled to end on March 15, 2004; however, continued snow cover in the northern part of the state has hampered the private stocking of birds already purchased by the clubs. By regulation, the Fish and Game Council may extend the semi-wild season for up to 20 days.

This year, the Division of Fish and Wildlife issued 228 semi-wild licenses throughout the state that allow clubs to stock and harvest game birds, hunt on Sundays and have an extended hunting season.
