The New Jersey DEP Division of Fish and Wildlife has announced that the extra pheasants are available because the Rockport Pheasant Farm in Warren County achieved better than anticipated production in the brooder houses and in the range pens this summer.
Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) scheduled for stocking on Tuesday, November 26, will each receive a portion of an additional 770 pheasants.
The additional birds are in addition to the 53,000 pheasants previously scheduled for the Small Game Season and the 1,090 already stocked for the Youth Pheasant Hunting Day on November 2.
Hunters can view the 2013 Division of Fish and Wildlife Pheasant Quail Stocking Schedule at:
