Depends which side of 540 you are on. There is state ground on the tidal and non tidal side of the meadow. And yes there are private blinds in the meadow. Many are already leased out.

its a locals spot great hunting. but bad for you, your truck and gear. the locals will F your stuff up and wreck your hunt. slash you tires or shoot your truck. not worth the crap to hunt down there. we use to hut down there until it got real bad. real bad being the farmers jacked the lease up. like retarded money and there isn't know way the state ground is going to competition for the big money lease. the farmers protect their interest the local cops just wright reports and the fish and game says well i didn't see them do it. its like picking banjos over there. once you cross rt 40 Salem co and Cumberland co your no longer in New jersey your in DEEP SOUTH JERZY . i call it the Maison Dixon line. there all real nice people but don't mess with their fishing or hunting.

My girlfriend is from pennsville and last year was my first year hunting that area. After dilegent scouting, I arrive at the spot I wanted to hunt on opening day(next to Mannington) at 3:00 am, beat a truck there by 10 min, and he gets out and tries to tell me there are already a father and son he knows hunting the water(it was a smaller pond) Im thinking no way in hell, so I walked up, flashed the area, and nothing. Come back down and he says nevermind the kid got sick after I explain theres no one there......
He asked if he and his partner could share it with me, and I reluctantly said yes,( wouldnt of second guessed it before the father son thing) and it was a pretty good days hunt. Only regret I have is giving him the downwind side. At the end of the hunt we talked for a while and they were two nice guys, willing to show me around mannington on a sunday. I lost the guys number two days later, so that never happened, but it shows that just about any hunter doesnt like company at first. Its up to you to win them over. I wouldnt mind hunting with them again.

As far as people slashing tires and what not, I sure hope he did something that justified it. I would be tempted to shoot someone for that crap. The fish and game maps are shaky but I know dozens and dozens of people without leases there who hunt it with no problem. Low tide is the plague there. I'd say like any other place, keep your distance and know your boundries. The locals are just the same as us.

Mannington, like everywhere, has its moments... you just have to be there at the right time or you'll take a skunking. One note... It's shallow and freezes up as soon as the temperature drops. When the mallards are around late season, it's usually frozen.

Is there anyplace there to go where it's dry? I wanted to get over there for a couple hours tomorrow morning to check it out. I don't have a boat but would like to take my son, seven years old, out to take a goose or maybe two. Any advice on where to go would be greatly appreciated.
