The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife reminds hunters that the 2012-13 small game firearm seasons for pheasant, chukar, ruffed grouse (south of Route 70) and woodcock (south of Route 70) open at 8:00 AM on Saturday, November 10. Small game seasons for several other species have already opened.
Hunters should review current regulations, season exceptions and bag limits in the 2012-13 Hunting and Trapping Digest (specifically page 65 – http://www.njfishandwildlife.com/dighnt12.htm ) for information regarding the specific season(s) they wish to hunt.
Firearm hunting is prohibited November 9 on state Wildlife Management Areas designated as Pheasant and Quail Stamp Areas to allow for stocking (except in tidal marshes open to an on-going waterfowl season).
For more information on the upcoming season, visit http://www.njfishandwildlife.com/news/2012/smgame12.htm on the division’s website.
