    You can only bow hunt on Sunday's on private lands and WMA lands. No state parks or forests or county or municipal lands.

    no i didnt get to go out today, had to work. i called the parks office and was trying to figure out if it was considered a WMA. they didnt know, of course, and told me to call brendan bryne. so when i called they didnt have an answer either. why do these people have jobs at these locations without having answers.

    Lands Open or Closed to Sunday Bow Hunting

    September 9, 2009
    Updated September 17 and
    October 6 and 7, 2009 The NJ DEP Division of Fish and Wildlife reminds hunters that on Monday, May 4, 2009, Senate Bill 802 was signed into law. This legislative change amends the law (N.J.S.A. 23:4-24) to legalize deer hunting on Sundays with a bow and arrow on Wildlife Management Areas and on private property only. The change does NOT include any firearm hunting for deer, nor does it allow any type of hunting with either bow or firearm for any species other than deer.
    Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) are those public lands defined as being under the jurisdiction of the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife. A list of WMAs suitable for deer hunting may be found at www.njfishandwildlife.com/wmas.htm. Legal Sunday bow hunting for deer becomes effective on the opening day of the fall 2009 hunting season.
    Hunters are reminded that this new privilege does NOT extend to other public lands, such as municipal or county parks, state parks or forests, or to any Federal lands. Therefore, you may legally bow hunt for deer on Sunday on any WMA open to deer hunting, but the following properties remain closed to Sunday deer hunting.

    Hunt from canoe that would be legal but then you'd have to retrieve deer floating down the creek unless you have a bunker snag
