Pheasant season is almost here and hunters need to be ready:
Take advantage of pre-season stocking of Dog Training Areas this weekend and next to prepare both hunters and their dogs.
The Youth Pheasant Hunt is Saturday, November 3 and continues the following Monday-Friday. Youths can still register for guided hunts.
Pheasant Season opens on Saturday, November 10 at 8:00 a.m.
Focus your hunting effort using the Pheasant Stocking Maps.

Note changes for the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area below.
changes have been made to the number and location of pheasants stocked within the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. A number of locations within the DWGNRA that were traditionally stocked will not be stocked this year due to being planted with soybeans which are typically harvested by November, leaving the fields barren and without cover. The Fish and Game Council voted to redistribute those pheasants to other WMAs (according to the Divisionís Pheasant Allocation Formula) where adequate cover provides a more enjoyable hunting opportunity. Check the Pheasant Stocking Maps for this year's stocked fields.
