Default Cost to hunt in NJ

Just spent $72 on a all around ....firearm.,bow, fish....and I live here. Put in the $40 for a pheasant stamp and $27 for each zone ( about 50 total ) and it quite a bit of cash. What do the rest of you guys pay ?

Just like everything else in this state, it's all about money. Been here 9 years and only hunted 1 year because of the cost. But that is soon to change, I will be moving to Delaware at the end of the month, My stay here is over, thank God.

Even if it is higher than other states it's still a bargain. It cost me $77 to fill my truck today. For $72.00 I can hunt for months.

Jersey sucks with their fees for hunting....

on the other hand I still hunt in NY...
for about $70 I am legal for Turkey (spring and fall), big game (dear/bear), archery (deer/bear), fishing (all kinds), and small game (including pheasant)

man i love NEW YORK!!!

I pay about $200 or so to hunt WV as a non-res. That's for a couple turkeys,2 deer with a bow, and 1 with a gun.

That's not too bad when compared to my home state, Ohio. As a resident here, I pay $20 for a license, $20 each for my 2 or 3 deer tags, and $20 each for my 2 turkey tags. That's $100-$120 as a resident.
