Yes I agree and think that we should some how crub the season. 2 bucks would be good. In years past it would be nothing to see 20-30 deer a day where I hunt. Now we struggle to see 5 or 6 a day. I did not take a doe this year and passed on several smaller bucks. trying to build back up the herd!
But what sucks more than the extended permit season is that I live in PA, so it's $135.00 for a hunting license $135.00 for my bow and of course what bow hunter does not want to hunt the rut, so there is another $ 56.00 dollars for your extened bow. Talk about a rip off! I understand the out of state cost but you would think that once you had your hunting
license that it would be just an additional percentage for your bow permit not the total cost of another license!
Just my rant!

After spending HUNDREDS of dollars this year on licenses, permits, equipment, and only seeing 4 deer..hunting 2-3days a week since opening day...I quit. It's gotten worse and worse every year, but this year was f'ing horrible. Jersey has beat me..I will never ever ever spend another dime on a hunting license or permit in this state again.

Jersey sucks for many many reasons. And yes I understand why you feel the way you do I feel the same way. However my love for hunting will "never" allow me to stop.Yes I have had many seasons that suck in the last 10 years.Yes coyotes,blue tongue ,unlimited doe harvest.This state has tried to eliminate the deer herd. Bear pop up out of no where.They make you pay for an extra buck tag,and if you choose not to and your out there and see a buck your screwed. I am a full time taxidermist and I see and feel the squeeze double. It affects what I love hunting and it affects the animals that come to me. People tell me they wont pay for the additional tag.This state is controlled by the insurance companies.They want deer gone.

I'll hunt in other states, but, never again in NJ. I'm cooling down after my rant...but I have never had a year this bad. I walked and walked and walked tons of acreage in the area I mostly hunt this year, and other than some droppings here and there there was NO sign of deer. No scrapes where the usually are, no rubs or rub lines, nothing.
