Bear and Beaver/Otter Lottery Award and OTC Permit Sale Information

November 12, 2010

The NJ DEP Division of Fish and Wildlife has announced that the Black Bear, Beaver and Otter Permit Lotteries have been concluded. Applicants who have been awarded permits are being notified via e-mail or postcard. Those who applied at a VeriFone-based license agent will get a postcard mailed to them. Applicants can also check the status of their application on the license website.

Following is information about the lotteries and how to claim awarded permits, as well information on upcoming over-the-counter (OTC) sales of leftover permits.

BLACK BEAR PERMITS

E-mail notifications to lottery applicants awarded Black Bear Permits have been sent. Those applicants who selected notification via postcard or used a VeriFone-based agent should receive them by Wednesday, November 17.

Awarded permits can be claimed beginning Monday, November 15 at any license agent or on the Division's license website (additional shipping and handling fees apply). Black Bear Permits can only be claimed if the applicant has a completed Bear Education Seminar on file in their customer profile.

Hunters should note that Bear Zone 1 sold out in the lottery and will not be available for OTC sales.

Bear Zones 2, 3 and 4 will be available for over-the-counter sale at license agent or on the Division's license website (additional shipping and handling fees apply). These OTC sales of leftover Black Bear Permits will begin at 10:00 am on Monday, November 22. There is a $2.00 fee for the permit.
