I was wondering if anybody else had a problem with the Pheasant Allocation Program that has been put in action by the state. I hunt the northern region of the state and have been told by state reps that the allocation was done to make pheasant distribution fair throughout the state. The program was based on the survey sent to all license holders who gave e-mail addresses when purchasing licenses. They were sent to 36,899 license holders and only 2513 responded. (6.8% response) 2016 numbers show that Central Region sold more Pheasant stamps followed by North and then southern. Overall license sales were within 8% of each other by region with South having the most license sales 37% central 34% and north 29%. So south region sells the most licenses and least amount of stamps Central was second in licenses highest in stamps and north sold fewer licenses but was second in stamps.the worst news is that licenses and stamp sales continue to drop.(almost 700 less stamps sold overall last year. I dont think any of this information shows a necessity to change pheasant allocation in NJ. I was unaware of the change until last year when I was advised by a conservation officer while hunting at Black River WMA. I dont think numbers needto be revised by the state but that maybe they should look into ways to raise more birds on the hatchery without needing more funds to do so. Hunters have put up with incresing prices ,short season due to the snow damage and less birds again this year due to problems at the hatchery. I applaud the division putting the Delaware National Park area to more use for pheasant hunting but maybe that should mean more bird production notrobbing peter to pay paul.I hunt Black River WMA because it is closest to my home in Bergen County (49miles). I enjoy going out to the Delaware but cant do that every time I go because it is over twice as far. This Allocation system was inacted on some poorly retrieved information. I would like to here from other on this topic from both sides. ...
