An FYI if anyone is looking to hunt up that way!
Refuge Manager William Koch announced that the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge will be conducting its annual deer hunt on the following dates: Nov. 2, and Nov. 6-9.
The refuge will be closed to all other uses and users while the deer hunt is underway.
The refuge will be open only to those persons who possess Great Swamp special deer hunting permits issued by the Refuge and the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife.
This will be the 40th year that the refuge has held a regulated deer hunt. The purpose of the hunt is to maintain a balanced deer population in harmony with the environment while also providing recreational opportunities compatible with the Refuge’s purpose.
