Thanks guys, Im going to compile it from here and other sources. I will give it some time and then I will sort it all out and try and figure out what the majority of hunters want.

Then I will sit down and try and write up some proposals.

Thanks again for your time, and encourage other NJ hunters to come to this site, not only to take my survey, but because this is by far the best NJ hunting site on the web.

Great day all---Matt:)

I will compile the results and post percentages for each question.

Also NJ had 356,468 licenses and stamps sold in 2003, we should have more members...if your reading this and havent logged in...please do so....our hunting and fishing rights depend on all of us.

Have a good one guys, and thanks to those who filled it out!---Matt:)

I dont know yet.....more than likely I will write up a proposal, show that to all of you for another vote of sorts, to gain approval, and then list the statistics in the proposal I send to them.

Unfortunately I jumped the gun on the first proposal, because I thought it was pretty widely accepted. I liked it anyways:D

So that already went to the division. I contacted Paul Tarlowe though, and asked him to hold off from passing it on.

Their only proposals, and anyone who wants to can write one up.

Im just trying to find one that pleases the majority.

Have a great day Kris, and thanks for this site and all that you do.:)

1) no
2) no
3) 3+ the does is enough for any hunter. Deer hunter give up the woods to others, we feel bad when we spook your area.
4) N/A don't have it in my area.
5) N/A
6) 1 per season (bow,extended,muzzle,shotgun and winter) That is enough in my opinion.
7) no, how much? $25
8) no
9) yes, how many spikes do you see mounted.
10) yes
11) yes 3pt. to 1 side. Min. Extended Bow 4 pt. to 1 side. Statewide.
As for AR they are good. They let bucks mature. As for the ADDED fees enough is enough. I hunt in 8 different states per year. ADD that up.
