I also hunt NJ and to get everything you need for the license (i.e. waterfowl stamps/ permits if you want) it is around $165. It is expensive, but I have private land to hunt on so it is worth it. NJ is not set up the same way as DE, there are not lottery drawings and there are a ton of hunters in the state wildlife areas. I would suggest unless you plan on scouting a lot or have private land to just stay in DE. The hunting in DE is just as good as NJ if not better!
The lottery system is different depending on where you go, but I will try to explain how it works for the most part. Usually the drawings are 1 1/2 hrs to 2 hrs before sunrise. You go to the check in station put your name and license number on a paper and then get a number. They will then proceed to pick numbers and when your number gets called, you get to pick a blind/stand to hunt. As long as you know what blinds/stands are good you will do fine!
Why lose when you can Win?
Proud to be everything Liberals cant stand!!
