Muzzleloader Season Continues January 2 in Most Zones
December 20, 2011
The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife is notifying purchasers of muzzleloader deer permits for zones covered by Regulation Sets 2, 3, 3A, 4, 6 and 8 that the season continues on Monday, January 2, 2012. A typographical error in the 2011-12 Hunting Digest for Regulation Sets 4, 6 and 8 erroneously lists January 3.
Hunters are reminded that 2011-2012 Muzzleloader Season permits for zones that remain open are valid into next year, but a 2012 hunting license is required to hunt any permit deer season that extends into the new year. The 2012 hunting and fishing licenses are now available at license agents and online.
The 2011-12 Hunting Digest should be consulted for season dates, bag limits and regulations pertaining to specific deer management zones. The 2011-2012 Game Code is available for review at www.njfishandwildlife.com/pdf/2011/gamecode2011-12.pdf (pdf, 400kb).
