Youth Pheasant Hunt Saturday, November 3

October 15, 2012

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 on Saturday, November 3, 2012. The Take a Kid Pheasant Hunting program provides opportunities for young hunters to learn and experience pheasant hunting using trained bird dogs under the supervision and guidance of knowledgeable volunteer hunting mentors.

This day is meant to be a safe and educational introduction into pheasant hunting and is done in a structured non-competitive atmosphere. Youth hunters can participate in a guided hunt on one of eight Wildlife Management Areas throughout the state that are stocked with pheasants reared at the Division of Fish and Wildlife's Rockport Pheasant Farm.

The guided pheasant hunt is open to any youth with a valid Youth Firearm Hunting License. There is no cost to participants and guides, hunting dogs and handlers, birds, ammunition and breakfast are all provided free of charge. Pre-registration is required, and the deadline has been extended until October 17th.

A limited number of slots for guided hunts are still available for the following Wildlife Management Areas:

Black River
Colliers Mills
The Youth Pheasant Hunt registration form is available on page 23 of the NJ Fish and Wildlife Hunting Digest and online at (pdf, 60kb) on the division's website.

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