Hunting Wharton State Forest

Does anyone have any experience in Wharton? I called and they said you can hunt anywhere as long as it is not private or posted.

Mr Green, in prior years I hunted the Mullica River pretty heavy from the Parkway west - up past Lower Bank and the Wading River.  Since the further west you go, the waters are fresh waters, mallards, black ducks, teal, wood ducks and pintails.  You either have the opportunity for jump shooting while floating or along the banks.  I had a favorite reed blind below the dam that was productive.  Never hunted farther west into the Wharton Tract, but bet you with some scouting you'll find plenty of hunting opportunity
Regards
John

Thanks. I am brand new to hunting and am not exactly sure what I look for when scouting. I have just been trying to figure out where I can legally hunt. Then if I can hunt legally I am looking for water that is not too deep and offers somewhere to establish a temp. blind on the shore or possibly use a kayak. Should I then go out during the early morning hours to see if there are any ducks or do I do this closer to the season (Aug. Sept)? I was thinking I would do this and practice my calls before the season and see if I can put out a decoy spread that attracts. Any help or advice is always appreciated.
Did you use the WMA properties  inteh locations you mentioned?

Mr Green, there are 2 'season's each year ... the Early and the Late
The Early one usually holds resident dabblers and migratory teal.  The best time to scout is when the birds are in the air and going to roost for the evening.  Make sure to take your binoculars

The Late Season is when the northern birds are migrating down to winter over
Regards
John

Thanks guys. Creekburner- I'm not familiar with millers bog but I know goshen pond and the other side of 206 a little bit. I was under the impression all of that area was off limits due to hiking trails.????have you ever had any problems? If not I will check it out this week. Thanks for the help.

Sorry, I don't have any experience in Wharton! I came here to read boomessays.com review. I am searching for the reviews of that website in many forums website but I can't find it anywhere. One of my friends told me that over here I will find the reviews of that website but I have searched a lot but can't find it. Can anyone tell me on which website I can read reviews of that website?
