There used to be loads of grouse in Sussex. But the maturation of the forests have just about wiped them out in the areas I hunt

When I was a kid In Eatontown we had a few coveys in the fields surrounding the neighborhood. We also had wild Pheasants. It's all Apartments now tho...

State stocks quail not as many as they used to tho, and not at all WMA's.
When I had a dog I used to hunt them over at Assunpink but I don't think they stock then there anymore.

Guess quail restoration project is bs? Seen grouse every season all over the state. Grouse are here, but elusive. I have heard quail but never seen them. A friend of mine; lives in the princeton area; says he sees them all the time. I think they may be Griggstown convicts though.
