So they're gonna charge kids to have hunting licenses now?  Previously 15 and under was free.  Sounds like they're saying 12 and up you have to pay now...

 

Previous Rule/Cost:

 

 

New Jersey issues resident and nonresident hunting licenses free of charge to those under the age of 16 who have completed a Hunter Education Course. The Youth Firearm, Bow and Arrow or Trapping License is valid from time of issuance until December 31 of the year that he or she turns 16.

Properly licensed youth hunters (resident & non-resident) aged 10–13 may hunt only when accompanied by a properly licensed adult aged 21 or older. Upon reaching 14 years of age a properly licensed youth may hunt independently.

It's not designed for kids.  There's separate rules that allow kids to hunt (WITH AN ADULT) starting at age 10!  They have to pass the Field Test on a Saturday between March and November...

Sounds like a good idea. I am wondering what "the catch" is. Also feel like this should allow kids to hunt with their parents using firearm. I guess its designed to bring more people into the sport whom did not grow up with family that hunts.

Previous Rule/Cost:

When I was 10 and got my hunting license it wasn't free. It was less than an adult license, but not free. That free license from 10-16 years old has only been around since about the time we switched over from hand written licenses to the CID# style we have now.

Sounds like a good idea. I am wondering what "the catch" is. Also feel like this should allow kids to hunt with their parents using firearm. I guess its designed to bring more people into the sport whom did not grow up with family that hunts.

They can hunt with a parent using a firearm at 10, right after they complete the hunter ed course one Saturday or Sunday out of their life forever. Takes about 2 hours for the entire firearms portion with the walk through. Then another half hour for the written exam.
