Saturday, November 2, 2002 is Youth Upland Bird Hunting Day in New Jersey. According to the Department of Environmental Protection's Division of Fish and Wildlife, young hunters (aged 10 through 15 in possession of a valid Youth Hunting License and accompanied by a licensed, non-shooting adult aged 21 years or older) will be permitted to hunt pheasant, quail and/or chukar partridge on licensed semi-wild or commercial preserves throughout the State. This is a great opportunity for hunters belonging to semi-wild preserves to introduce youth hunters to upland bird hunting without competition from adult hunters.
Hunting hours are 8 a.m. to sunset. All game taken on semi-wild or commercial preserves must be properly tagged before transport.
Hunters should review current regulations and zone boundaries in the New Jersey Fish and Wildlife Digest, particularly pages 50 and 68, before going afield.
