Bowhunting NJ Classes Required.

I must admit, I am quite impressed with the state of New Jersey.


Overall the New Jersey Hunter Education program conducts about 100 classes per year. They encourage people to sign up for the Spring classes, as the fall classes fill up quickly, and you wouldn't want to take the chance on missing out on hunting season all together. They do offer a home study kit so you can learn hunter education at your own pace.

Here are the course descriptions as listed on the NJDEP website (www.state.nj.us/dep/fgw/hunted):
SHOTGUN - This course is required before purchasing your first firearm hunting license. You must be at least 10 years of age.
BOW AND ARROW - This course is required before purchasing your first bow and arrow hunting license. You must be at least 10 years of age. You must be able to shoot 3 out of 5 arrows into the vital zone of a 3-D deer target (approximately 10-inch diameter) between 10 and 20 yards with your own bow to pass this course. Having adequate equipment and practice is important before coming to the field session.
RIFLE/MUZZLELOADER - You must first pass the shotgun course or have a firearm hunting license before you can take this course. This course is required to obtain a NJ Rifle Permit. You must be at least 10 years of age.
TRAPPER TRAINING - This course is required before you purchase your first trapping license. You must be at least 12 years of age. See the Trapping Information page or call 877-2-HUNT-NJ for course information when scheduled.
