Primary Turkey Range and Public Land in NJ

 

New Jersey hunters can enjoy some of the finest turkey hunting on the East Coast right in their own backyards. Abundant public land and a low density of hunters make South Jersey ideal. Specific information on public turkey hunting land is contained in the annual NJ Wild Turkey Hunting Season Information booklet.

NOTE: Information is from 2004 and may not be accurate for all areas. See the Public Hunting Land in New Jersey page for general information on lands open to hunting.
