The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection's Division of Fish and Wildlife announces important deer check station closures and additions in Atlantic, Burlington, Middlesex, Ocean and Salem counties for the 2000-2001 deer seasons. Hunters are reminded that they should check in their deer at the station closest to the harvest location.

Instead, hunters may take their deer to the Green Bank Inn on Rt. 542 in Green Bank, Scott's Bait and Tackle on Radio Road in Mystic Island (Ocean County) or the Port Store on Clark's Landing Road in Port Republic (Atlantic County) during all six of the deer seasons.
