I usually hunt Fort Dix, because I've trained with my guard unit there for decades. I'd only been to Picatinny once in the 90s to deliver some humvees.

I've been wanting to go up there for hunting, but I wouldn't even know where to start!

Is there an impact area and a Range Control station to let you know where you CANNOT hunt?
WoooHooo! I got the zone 54 permit and tags in the free lottery with my guard unit. I guess I'll be hunting there this muzzleloader season. Looks like end of November.

But it looks like they are limiting some areas this year due to Unexploded Ordnance (UXOs)

Here's what they posted:

BG Maddux and LTC Koehler have directed a temporary prohibition on recreational hunting and trapping in the following areas due to possible UXO. This prohibition applies immediately and will remain in effect until further instructions are provided:
2B, 2W, 3, 4, 5B (South of Peterson St./Babbit Rd. intersection), 6N, 6B, 7S, 8N, 9B, 11E, 13E, 13W, 17, 18E (East of Green Pond Brook), 20B.
Thank you for your cooperation. More information will be made available concerning the status of these hunting areas in the near future.
Robert Hailstone, Safety Office
The command group at Picatinny has announced the all recreation use on Picatinny Lake is closed as of 19 Sep. 2011, until the dam/wall project is completed by the end of this year.
