I hunt in NJ and part of the reason nice bucks are few and far between is because we can harvest up to 5 bucks per year.
Fall/Permit Bow -1 buck, unlimited anterless
Winter Bow - 1 buck, unlimited anterless
6-Day Firearm - 2 bucks, NO anterless unless permit is purchased
Permit Gun - 1 buck (unless 2 were harvested during 6-day), unlimited anterless
Muzzleloader - 1 buck, unlimited anterless
IMO, the buck harvest numbers should be decreased, especially being we can shoot unlimited anterless deer so freezers are always full. I also think that a great idea would be for hunters in NJ to purchase one buck tag at the beginning of the season that can be used through all seasons, and if a buck is harvested, a second and FINAL buck tag could also be purchased for the remaining seasons. That would reduce the buck harvests to 2 per hunter per year, which I think is fair. One thing to note is that as is now, the majority of our buck tags need to be purchased individually per season per zone. It is ridiculously expensive to hunt in NJ, but you got to pay to play, I guess.
