NH Pheasant Stocking

Information on NHFG's Pheasant Stocking Program

Pheasant sitting in a fieldThe following list provides a road name for sites stocked with pheasant. Locations shaded with italicized bold print are state managed lands while the rest of these sites are on privately owned land open to hunting. Locations with more than one stocking site on the property are so noted. The tradition of pheasant hunting is available only because landowners continue to allow hunters access and areas to hunt pheasants.

This year, 10,000 adult ring-necked pheasants will be purchased and released at 63 sites in 43 towns. Sites will be stocked just prior to opening day and then on either a Thursday or Friday through October 20. Pheasant season will be closed until noon statewide on in-season stocking days. These closures will occur on Thursdays and Fridays, October 3-4, 10-11, and 17-18. The Success site is now closed and a new site in Milan, off of Head Pond Road, will be stocked this year.

  • Always wear safety glasses.
  • Know where your hunting partners are at all times.
  • Shoot only within your zone of fire.
  • Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
  • Always keep your hunting dog under control.
  • Wear hunter orange on your head, back and chest.


IMPORTANT: Pheasant season will be closed statewide until noon on in-season stocking days.
