The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife is reminding turkey hunters that a change in the Game Code adopted this year added a second Saturday to the fall turkey season. The season opens this Saturday, October 29, and continues through Saturday, November 5, 2011 for those hunters who have purchased a Fall Turkey Season (N). Permits are available at license agents and online.

Please note that the following turkey check stations will NOT be available to check in birds this year: Big Daddy’s Sports Haven (Cumberland County); Ralph-Anthony Automotive (Hunterdon County); Lakeside Deli (Hunterdon County); and R & S Sports (Morris County).

Information about the fall season can be found on page 67 of the 2011 Hunting Digest ( ). Hunters should also note that the boundary for Turkey Hunting Areas 22 was also changed, affecting adjoining areas. A revised Turkey Hunting Area map, as well as text descriptions of the new boundaries, can be found on the Wild Turkey in New Jersey page at on the division’s website.
