Hey everyone..My boyfriend and I just moved down here from Sussex County and we have been looking for spots to hunt and maybe meet some people in the area who know it a bit better than we do. We checked out B [no swearing please] River, which seemed ok, but I would like to pheasant hunt this year and I am not sure if there are any down here!

Carla .I dont know about pheasant hunting up your way,but down in Atlantic County in Port Republic WMA there is pheasant hunting. I think they stock it every other week. The crowds are big, I know because they drove me out when I was trying to bow hunt last year...lol

Carla, First off Hello & welcome..... Stafford forge is a good deer spot also in the pines called " 5 points". If you like to fish.... Goto the end of osbourne Island, good fishing in the bay. I can't remember where any bird hunting is down there, sorry.

Stafford forge
Carla, check the game laws. I think they stock this WMA. Although I may be thinking of some place else.

GREENWOOD FOREST WMA
The Greenwood Forest WMA is nestled in the scrub pine and forest of Ocean County, north of the intersection of secondary Route 539 and state Route 72. The 28,172 acres of Greenwood Forest are made up of pitch pine, scrub oak and white cedar swamp, sprinkled with some open fields and dirt roads, and is a lowland hunters delight.

Approximately 1,000 acres are managed specifically as quail habitat, and these are divided into 50 5-acre areas with hedgerows separating them. Birds are released specifically within these 1,000 acres, and to ensure the stability of the habitat for the birds, no vehicles are permitted in these areas.

This one looks a little further away
PEASLEE WMA
The Peaslee WMA is about seven miles east of Millville, with its eastern border being the Tuckahoe River. One of the state's largest WMAs (22,033 acres), its land was purchased in October 1954 with money from hunting and fishing license fees. The WMA provides 150 acres (20 fields) that are managed for quail hunting.
In addition to the 5,500 birds that are stocked at Peaslee, there is also a limited amount of natural quail reproduction. Peaslee's lowland terrain of scrub pine and brush are excellent for working dogs. The quail management area, which has been planted with the bobwhite's favorite browse, is located almost directly in the center of the WMA.

Hope this helps you out and happy hunting
