The NJ DNR page clearly states 10 years old is the minimum age. READ BELOW

it states that minimum age to hunt is 10 years of age, but that doesn't mean one can hunt at that age alone. During the youth hunts, a youth must have a license hunter with him at all times

Did not see the "alone" part in the first post. The third post just asked for a minimum age which I supplied. Try this tidbit I found on the same NJDEP website.

Youth Licenses
Properly licensed youth hunters (resident & non-resident) aged 10‚Äď13 may hunt only when accompanied by a properly licensed adult aged 21 or older. Youths, 15 years of age and under, are able to hunt and trap for free, provided they have passed a Hunter Education course. Youth Licenses are valid from time of issuance until end of the year the holder turns 16. More information is available on the Youth License page.

Sounds like something here in Maine, you must have a valid adult license at 16 years of age to hunt alone.
