I mean I don't really know anything about hunting, which is why I asked this question. Even though it's a stupid question, I learned a bit already from a lot of what you guys have posted. I don't know if the permits are from jan-dec, if so then ill just apply in 2017 and learn everything I can about it for the next four months.
You need to complete a hunter education course before you can buy a hunting license. You should do so because it will teach you a lot about the regulations, ethics and procedures related to hunting. The course is free and will allow you to make a decision on whether or non you want to hunt the various game available in NJ. You should sign up for both the general hunting course as well as the rifle course to be able to hunt with rifles in NJ. Bow is a separate course if you want to take that as well.
Taking this course is also helpful if you need live fire training to get an out of state carry permit such as Florida. The certificate they give you is sufficient for Florida.
Licenses and stamps run from Jan 1 - Dec 31, permits are for the hunting season - typically Oct - Feb. Rifle permits are July 1 - June 30.
