The 2007 Fall Turkey Permit Lottery and the 2007 Deer Permit Seasons Lotteries have been completed. Lottery applicants should have already received their award notifications via e-mail or postcard. If an applicant has not received their status notification they can go online to the license sales Web site. Hunters must input their personal information to bring up their file and then select the "Check on the status of a Lottery Application" button which is at the bottom of the screen.

Permits can be claimed via the Internet sales site or by going to any license agent.

Deer Management Zones and Turkey Hunting Areas are not the same. Refer to the 2007 Hunting Digest or Turkey Permit Supplement for details.

Fall Turkey Season Permits:

The following Turkey Hunting Areas have leftover permits available:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 20.

Turkey Hunting Area 21 sold out in the lottery. Turkey hunters are reminded that there is no fall season in turkey hunting areas 12, 14, 15, 16 or 22. Turkey permits cost $21.00 for each adult permit and $12.00 for each youth permit. Youths are guaranteed their first permit. This means that even if the zone is sold out the youth can still get their permit because they are not included in the permit quotas.

Deer Season Permits:

The following two special areas will have permits available for sale over the counter:

  • Zone 64 –Monmouth Battlefield State Park - Permits are available for Permit Shotgun Season only. Permits for Monmouth Battlefield (Zone 64) will only be available for purchase until October 22nd.

  • Zone 37 – Fort Dix Military Reservation - Permits are available for the Permit Bow, Permit Shotgun and Permit Muzzleloader Seasons. These permits will be available for sale until each season ends or they sell out, whichever comes first.

    All other special areas that were part of the lottery do not participate in leftover sales.

    Permits for all non-lottery deer management zones will also be available for sale both on the license sales Web site or at license agents, beginning on Tuesday, October 9th at 10:00 a.m. Deer Permits cost $28.00 for each adult permit and $12.00 for each youth permit.

    Hunters are reminded that this year all zone specific season permits are valid only for harvesting antlerless deer. If a hunter wishes to harvest a buck during the Permit Bow, Permit Muzzleloader or Permit Shotgun seasons a Bonus Buck Permit must be purchased prior to the opening of the antlered deer portion of a season. Bonus Buck Permits are not zone specific and must be used in conjunction with the zone specific antlerless permits. Please refer to page 16 in the 2007 Hunting Digest for more details.
