To many does being taken and no limit on buck size. Would like to see a 3pt rule put into place. The state only cares about money flow from permits.

New Jersey is only interested in revenue,I am a senior citizen and have too pay $250 dollars for licenses and permits .Allowing to many Bucks to be shot .

NJ is all about revenue. The ridiculous 6 buck a year tag system is geared entirely toward that, as is unlimited antlerless from permit season to permit season. Bucks get no age in this state overall

There used to be big bucks everywhere. After a week, the biggest thing I saw was a small 8 that was definitely not the shooter you pay good money to hunt. Saw lots of does during the second week.

Need QDMA practices and less buck tags. The week long buck season with 2 buck limit is rediculous.

Too liberal with buck tags. Hate crossbow with archery. It's a gun that shoots arrows. If u can't pull 35#s then ok. NJ plans on eradicating the deer & making us pay Big$. The ent pop should help pay.

Far too many opportunities to kill bucks and no limit on size. State uses permit system as a revenue flow
