Harding Advisories/Notices

8/15/2019 - Annual Hunter Workshop on August 15, 2019

The Hunter Workshop is planned for Thursday, August 15, 2019 at 6:00 pm at the Harding Township Municipal Building.

As in the past, we have invited a representative from the NJ Fish and Wildlife Service to attend the meeting and bring us up to date on the latest status of any hunting rules and regulations.

The meeting will also provide an opportunity for hunters to exchange information and to discuss steps, which may be used to organize hunting activities in the Township during the upcoming hunting season.


HUNTER REGISTRATION:

 
The Township seeks this information to help ensure public safety and to assure that only qualified hunters operate in the Township.

An updated version of the policy and procedures along with the registration form is available here. 

Please complete the registration form and return it by August 15, 2019.

The information is used for two (2) purposes:

a) to enable the Police to identify the registered vehicles that may be parked along Township roads while they are hunting; and

b) to enable the Environmental Commission to coordinate access to Township-owned property for hunting activities.

The registration is voluntary for people hunting with permission on private property. Registration (complete with copies of the Conservation ID Card and the Insurance Declaration Page) is mandatory to Hunt with Township permission on Township-owned property. The Township anticipates making the same list of six (6) Township-owned properties available under the same conditions as last year. One criteria used in this process is the time of the receipt of your information.

If you wish to engage in hunting activities on Township owned property, please submit the necessary information as soon as possible.

Please note that two (2) of the listed properties have joint ownership with the Harding Land Trust and the Township, therefore, your submission of the registration form indicates your agreement with the expressed waiver at the bottom of the form.


HUNTING ON HARDING LAND TRUST PROPERTIES:
The Harding Land Trust has agreed to allow some land that they own (including Primrose Farm) available for hunting under conditions similar to those specified last season. There will be a representative from Harding Land Trust at the workshop to address any questions.

For more information and a separate registration application, go to http://hardinglandtrust.org/properties/.

NOTE: If you are hunting on private property, it is required to have the property owner’s personal cell phone number with you at all times, in the event information it is needed by the Police.
