Free Hunting Licenses for NJ Veterans With a Service-Connected Disability
Trenton, NJ –-(AmmoLand.com)- Free fishing and hunting licenses, stamps and permits for NJ resident veterans with a service-connected disability have been available since 2000.
The NJ DEP Division of Fish and Wildlife issues these licenses to eligible veterans after a certification process requiring proof of honorable discharge from any branch of the Armed Forces and who have been declared by the US Department of Veterans Affairs to have a service-connected disability of any degree.
Eligible veterans only need to apply once for disabled veteran certification. Only the division can approve certification; license agents are not authorized to do so.
Once certified, free licenses, stamps and permits can be obtained from any license agent or via the division's license website. Regular license requirements (i.e. applicable hunter education course completion for hunting licenses, etc.) apply.
Certification can be completed at three division offices (no license agents) or via the mail.
