Westport Pheasant Release Site

For pheasant hunters in Essex County, there is only one choice. With virtually no natural reproduction in the North Country, hunters must take advantage of the annual releases of stocked pheasants by the state Department of Environmental Conservation.

Birds are stocked twice – prior to the season and in mid-season in the town of Westport on the Split Rock Mountain Wild Forest at the corner of Lake Shore Road and Clark Road.
