Just wondering if anyone hunts in Lincoln Park / Fairfield. I bow hunted LP a few times years ago with some success. I currently work in Fairfield which is right down the road. Figure it would be a nice place to hunt right after work for a few hours.
my friends did a few years ago, saw some nice bucks but also saw lots of the so called COY-DOGS, they said they would follow my friends out of woods growling, so they had enough. I walked it with them after there 1st season, very swampy area, I myself would like to find a good area to hunt it after work also.
imb21, i work right on Passaic Avenue and New Dutch Lane intersection, right next to the airport. What about you? I know hunting is permitted in Fairfield, I just don't really know where. That's why I started this thread, hoping to get some feedback. I know of an area or two in Lincoln Park, but it's been years since I hunted there. I know there are a few sizable clubs that hunt both towns, but I also heard the waiting list to get in is rediculous. imb21, maybe if we do some homework, we can find out more info. and have a place literally 5 min. from where we work. That would be sswwweeeeett!
I heard the same thing from more than one person to. I friend moved his business to fairfield last year. It backs up to the airport. By just looking from his parking lot,I could see some nice rubs. Guess, what Im not a cop.[down]
Luv2hunt, I work for a company called Tech-Air/Total Maintenance and Service, I am on Plog Road, off of Fairfield Rd, behind Calandras, Yeah we should get together one day and see what we can come up with for hunting Fairfield, That would be great for me, Email me and we'll talk.....Ian
Last I knew the airport had guys hunting it on a shoot to kill permit,only problem was they only wanted the guys in there with bows and the permit is shotgun only Im not sure what ended up happening but it couldnt hurt to ask.
I live in Lincoln Park and have nice deer in my backyard. I too am looking foe places to hunt in the area. I know you need to get an additional hunting permit from the Borough of Lincoln Park for $10.00.
Last I heard, and this is going back a good 4 years, Fairfield hired snipers to cull the deer herd on the airport property and the golf course, and they shot a lot of deer. I don't know if it's still going on. mpemt24, have you hunted around your house, or are there too many homes nearby?
Too many homes. I over look the golf course on Two Bridges Road. If they state went to the 150 foot rule for bow, I could. There are a lot of farms in town, but my guess is they have there own hunters.
I think that strip of woods is a sanctuary. There are a lot of deer there. The woods is deep if you drive up Pine Brook Road. Maybe I should knock on doors.
The wife just called and said a buck is standing in the back yard. She said it is big and the antler are about 3 inches tall with big nubs at the end.
