    I wish I had a NJ September bow season and a February bow season and would love to bow hunt on thanksgiving day.Also would love a 2 deer per season either sex limit.I would also love to see at least 10 deer per hunting season.I will never see any of those things in NJ.

    I like October 1 to January 15 with 2 buck tags and paying for each one of your doe tags with a limit.
    It would be nice to see any type of change but I will belive it when I see it.
    All seasons combined

    They promised BIG change for 2016 after review last winter, then shortened a few zones by a couple of days .

    They did more then a couple of days for my zone.They cut the length of almost every season and limited it to one deer per season.The funny thing is if you wanted to shoot a buck during permit you still had to buy a doe tag you couldn't use.

    Seriously fellas, the state can only change one regulation at a time. I doubt if you see any change of any extremes. You might see early doe days get dropped or three point restriction on a certain zone be dropped. It's difficult for the deer Reg committee to change seasons. In the short sweet version the state want the deer to be harvested.

    I'm with you on this, I hunt a state forest in z24 and would love to have thanksgiving back. My permit bow season is like 3 Saturdays.

    You can leave it open half the year for all I care...but you CAN'T shoot every deer in the woods. Either way , believe it when I see it.

    i don't mind a long season - if anything that just spreads hunters out more which is a good thing. i'd like to see a limit on the total number of deer killed during the entire year (i.e. 2017-2018) - possibly 4 deer total.
