2014 Bow Hunting Season

Posted: September 18, 2014

The 2014 bow season for the harvest of white-tailed deer began Saturday, September 13, 2014 and will extend until February 21, 2015.

Bow hunting is being permitted on most municipally-owned, open space properties as well as lands adjacent to municipal parks. The one exception is Brundage Park lands which will open for hunting in early October.

Bow hunting will also take place at Hedden County Park, James Andrews Memorial County Park, the Morris County MUA lands off of Park Avenue and the Clyde Potts Watershed lands bordering Mendham.

Randolph’s trail system will remain open throughout the hunting season. The trails through the Clyde Potts Watershed lands will be closed December 9, 11, 12 and 13 and January 10, 17, 24 and 31 when shotgun hunting is permitted. Trail gates to the watershed lands will be posted in advance of the closings.

The Randolph Township Wildlife Management Advisory Committee maintains a comprehensive listing of municipal open space lands and issues access permits to hunters to hunt on municipal lands. It also maintains a list of licensed hunters who are available to hunt on private property. Simply contact .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this e-mail address) to obtain information.

Hunters on all municipal and county lands have been provided access permits by the township for hunting on municipal lands and the Morris County Park Commission for hunting on county properties. All hunters must be issued licenses by the NJ Division of Fish & Wildlife following the completion of training for safety and compliance with hunting regulations.
