NEW JERSEY – This year’s guided Take a Kid Hunting Pheasant Hunt will take place on Saturday, October 30. Properly licensed and supervised youth hunters have the opportunity to hunt one of the Wildlife Management Areas (WMA) stocked specifically for this program, according to the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife.
Guided morning hunts are offered, however participants must register and when registration reaches capacity for each WMA, it will no longer appear on the online registration form. Registration closes October 15 and late registrations will not be accepted.
Priority will be given to first time participants and we encourage youth who have never had the opportunity to upland hunt to take advantage of this program.
COVID-19 safety protocols and social distancing guidelines will be in effect and capacity for participants at each location will be limited.
No walk-in participants will be accepted.
Youth hunters who do not register for the guided hunt can still participate October 30 and November 1-5 on any of the 10 WMAs stocked for the Take a Kid Pheasant Hunting program. Youth hunters must be properly licensed and accompanied by a properly licensed mentor.
