Trenton, NJ --(Ammoland.com)- Exciting Changes In Hunter Education

The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife is proud to announce that starting this spring, the shotgun and rifle/muzzleloader classes have been merged into one single FIREARMS class.

This new class will now cover shotgun, modern rifle, muzzleloader and the recently approved air gun! The live fire portion of the class will be completed with the shotgun only.

The new versions of the manual and workbook are currently available for download at on the Division’s website and will be at stores later this spring. Current print versions of the workbook are still valid, but students taking the new Firearms course need to complete both “Shotgun” and “Rifle/Muzzleloader” sections.

Current shotgun hunters will not have to take this new class in order to purchase a NJ Rifle Permit. An optional advanced muzzleloader rifle course will be made available in the fall for those looking to further their knowledge on muzzleloader rifle hunting.

For more information , to download the materials, and to register for a field session/exam visit www.njfishandwildlife.com/hunted.htm . Avoid the fall rush. Take a class this spring. March classes are now open for registration!
