I am a New Jersey hunter and have been bow & gun hunting here for 15 years now.

New Jersey is a great place to hunt, but you should take a look at venturing out to Illinois one day ... home of the massive whitetail deer!

Yeah, I would like to live in a place where the bucks live to see there 2nd birthday!
You are right though. If you have the "private" land to hunt. NJ is the place to be!
I am lucky haveing grown up here and knowing a lot of farmers and friends with land. I have plenty of places to hunt, some of my spots are on public land and they are good too.

Non-resident firarm or bow is $135.50
You can hunt the one week shotgun season or with the bow license you can hunt (depending on the zone, the state is broken down into 67 hunt zones) anywhere from 24 to 42 days.
The extra permits are $28 each and shotgun alows (depending on the zone) either 1, 3, 10, 34, or 50 days. bow allows you an extra 28, 42 or 54 days depending on the zone.
Most of the state land near me is on the high end of nomber of days allowed. In my zone if you hunt with shotgun, bow and muzzleloader you can start hunting on Sept 6th and hunt everyday but sundays, Thanksgiving and Christmas untill Feb 14th.
There are deer to be had on the state lands. If you are serious about hunting here, I'll point you in the right direction. Send me a message.

OK but, I don't know your e-mail address.
The website for the state is
New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife.
You can get most of your info there and if you do come to hunt I can show you some good areas I know of that are public.
