    I want to hunt in NJ. Does anyone know if I need a firearms permit to hunt with a shotgun or can I just walk into the woods with a license and shoot a deer?

      A license is required to hunt or trap in New Jersey and a person must be a minimum of 10 years of age to have one issued (see Farmer Exceptions). Licenses must be openly displayed in the middle of the back on outer clothing.

      A completed hunter education course or a resident license from NJ or any another state is required to obtain a NJ license. If hunter education had been completed but the card lost, a duplicate hunter education card can often be obtained. New or returning hunters without hunter education or previous license documentation may be eligible for an Apprentice Hunting License.

      Licenses and stamps can be purchased at license agents located throughout the state. Licenses can also be purchased online, provided documentation of a completed course or resident license has been entered in the license database.

      New Jersey licenses are for the calendar year and expire on December 31 regardless of when purchased (see Youth Licenses for exception). Deer permits are valid into the following year if a season extends into it, but the current year's license is required. Waterfowl Stamps and Rifle Permits only are valid for the July 1 - June 30 period.
