NEW JERSEY – This year’s Take a Kid Hunting Pheasant Hunt will take place on Saturday, Nov. 4. Properly licensed and supervised youth hunters have the opportunity to hunt one of 10 Wildlife Management Areas (WMA) stocked specifically for this program, according to the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife.

Eight guided morning hunts are offered, however participants must register and registration opens Tuesday, Sept. 5. When registration reaches capacity for each WMA, it will no longer appear on the online registration form. Registration closes Oct. 15 and late registrations will not be accepted.
