This Saturday, November 23, is New Jersey’s Youth Firearm Deer Hunt Day. The day is part of the NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife’s Take a Kid Hunting Program and is open to those with a valid Youth Firearm Hunting License.
The youth firearm hunt is an extension of the Six-day Firearm Season so no special deer permit is required. In addition to the Youth License, the hunter must be under the direct supervision of a person who is at least 21 years old and who has a valid firearm license. Direct supervision is defined as the youth hunter and mentoring adult set up together at the same location and hunting as a unit – not hunting independently.
