1. Call your lawyer. The “Garden State” is a shifting sand of chimerical regulations and laws governing gun ownership, possession and use. Chances are you will always be in violation of one of them.
2. After your have paid your lawyer and have studied the NJ laws, go to the nearest police station and apply for a New Jersey Firearm ID Card. The person in charge of this, usually a gold-bricking senior cop, is out. They aren’t sure when he will be back. Try coming back tomorrow. He must come in on alternate leap years. Eventually you will be finger printed, investigated and allowed to fill out various forms.
3. Now that you have an ID card it is time to go hunting. First you must pass a hunter safety course. This is given at odd locations at inconvenient times but the news is good. It no longer requires 2 days of classroom time. A mere 4 hours will do the trick, provided you complete a long hunter education work book. In lieu of this an online study course is available for $25 that awards you a certificate.
4. Now that you have a certificate you may take the test. But wait: archery, trapping, shotgun and rifle hunting all require separate tests. Bear hunting yet another class.
5. You have passed the test and may now purchase a hunting license. But you cannot hunt with a license alone. You need a permit.

What do you expect from a state where they can't pump their own gas?? Actually I've seen enough NJ residents at the ranges in PA and their stellar "gun skills" and safety have left me less than impressed. Maybe Jeff Foxworthy can do a you might be from NJ if......routine. I guess they didn't take the courses.

We are from North Carolina. We went to hunt in NJ last year, walked in the first sporting goods store we saw and purchased our licenses. No hassle at all.

...and I don't plan on going to New Jersey for ANY reason ANYTIME. Only good thing in NJ is the USCG training center...if elected President I will move it to a more hunting friendly state.
