Rockport WMA Refuge Status Lifted for Deer and Bear Hunting

December 2, 2011

The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife is informing hunters that the refuge status for the Rockport WMA will be lifted to allow deer and bear hunting beginning December 5, 2011. As always, the Game Farm proper (area around the pens and buildings) remains closed to all hunting. The pheasant refuge status for the 380-acre area posted as restricted remains and is closed to pheasant hunting. It is hoped that additional pheasants can be recovered in the coming months as breeding stock for next year's production.

A map of the portion of the WMA that remains closed to pheasant hunting can be viewed at (pdf, 933kb). The area includes the parcels on either side of Rockport Road contiguous with the Game Farm buildings and pens upslope to and including the power line right of way.
