The arch winter season is underway
It’s been kind of a week since it opened, but the 2023 winter deer season is more like its month-long October counterpart.
I mean, it’s hot… bordering on the “h” word for the first round of the calendar page.
The season will last half an hour after sunset on Tuesday January 31st, and although white deer numbers have been significantly reduced during various standard and permit seasons, there are still plenty of deer around for provide an opportunity to put extra venison in the freezer.
Granted, white deer numbers in various Deer Management Zones (DMZs) were impacted by the EHD outbreak in early fall, but with nearly 750,000 acres of public land open to deer hunting that don’t require permits or additional access fees, well, it’s just a matter of scouting another hunting spot if the number of whitetail deer in the area of origin is low.
It’s basically a matter of time, regardless of the weather.
Opines veteran rack rocker (pictured) Bill Brown of Waretown in Ocean County who hunts public land 99.9% of the time, “Get out and sit down, hot or cold. You can’t kill a deer staying at home. They move. They feed. It’s all about being in the right place at the right time, and you can’t do that unless you’re in the woods.
That is, but the filling of tags is deep.
While the general statewide season ends on the date/time listed above, winter arc opportunities continue until half an hour after sunset on Saturday the 18th. February in the 7-15, 17, 36, 41, 49, 50 and 51 of the DMZ.
