NJ bear permit lottery application opens Sept. 15

From New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection

-- The black bear permit lottery application period runs from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15, and only hunters with a current, valid NJ firearm license may apply.

There will be two lotteries this year; an initial permit lottery and a secondary/leftover permit lottery.

Black bear hunters have the option of applying for a second permit in the secondary/leftover permit lottery; however the second application cannot be for the same black bear hunting area. Only one bear may be taken, regardless of the number of permits a hunter possesses.
