The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife reminds parents, grandparents and mentors of the special opportunity the February Youth Waterfowl Hunts will provide. These days, available through the Take a Kid Hunting Program provide a quality hunting experience for properly licensed youth hunters by increasing their opportunity for harvesting game outside the regular season in a setting which encourages responsible and safe hunting practices with a supportive atmosphere.
The Youth Waterfowl Hunt in each of the three hunting zones will be held as follows:
This is the first year a youth waterfowl hunt has been held late in the season in the North and South Zones.
- February 4, 2017 (North and South Zones)
- February 11, 2017 (Coastal Zone)
The hunt is open to all holders of a current Youth License. Daily bag limits for all species will be the same as their respective bag limit during the regular season.
