Is There Good Public Hunting Land?


New member
I just moved to CT and truly enjoy pheasant hunting. I live in New Haven County and am looking for some good public land pheasant hunt on. Any recommendations?

I think the department of game provides stocking somewhere, go to the website to find out.

That is the department of energy and environment, (DEEP), it has a big bold website that has amazingly! WILDLIFE AREAS. On the left side, and down in the corner center , a right a site that says, PHEASANT HUNTING. I learned all you need to know, in less time than I have spent responding to you! So if hunting is your game, you need to know the rules, you need a pheasant stamp for sure. There are areas that you can hunt. There is somewhere around 15,000 birds bought and stocked across the state. I can't believe that if you will sign on here and pose the questions, you should have done this by now. If you want some Conn. Pheasant hunter to direct you to a free area where farmer Bob raises pheasants and would let you hunt..... I would direct you to the volumes of posts about internet scouting on this site. It's a great sport, it takes hard work, endurance, and soon enough a good dog, scouting is one of the rituals. When you have been there, come back and tell us about it, good or bad, we may have suggestions.
