Permit Muzzleloader Deer Season Corrections in DIGEST for Regulations Sets 4 & 6 During Six-Day Firearm Season for Deer December 6-11, 2004
December 2, 2004
Deer hunters should note that there are errors regarding Regulation Set #4 (page 30) and Regulation Set #6 (page 31) of the New Jersey Fish and Wildlife Digest, Hunting Season Issue.
Regarding Regulation Set #4 (Zones 2, 16, 22, 26, 27, 28, 29, 31, 35, 47 and 63), the Permit Muzzleloader Season for deer is NOT open during the Six-day Firearm Season, December 6-11, 2004. Though a hunter may use his or her muzzleloader to harvest an antlered deer that week, their muzzleloader permit is not valid during that time. As a result, no antlerless deer may be taken.
Regarding Regulation Set #6 (Zones 5, 17, 19, 25, 42 and 48), during the Six-day Firearm Season December 6-11, 2004, only antlerless deer may be taken with a muzzleloader permit (since the seasons run concurrently). However, antlered deer may be taken with a muzzleloader during that week and tagged with the firearm season license tag and buck stub.
