New Jersey Statutes, Title: 23, FISH AND GAME, WILD BIRDS AND ANIMALS

    Chapter 3: License for hunting, fishing or trapping; penalty; exemptions.

      Section: 23:3-3.1: Issuance of apprentice firearm, bow and arrow licenses.

          
2. a. The Division of Fish and Wildlife may, in its discretion, issue an apprentice firearm hunting license to a citizen of the United States above 14 years of age. The division shall not require an applicant to complete a course in gun safety as a condition of issuing an apprentice firearm hunting license to an applicant. The license shall authorize a licensee to hunt only with hounds or firearms and only when accompanied by a holder, above 21 years of age, of a regular resident's or nonresident's firearm hunting license. A person may not serve as an accompanying firearm hunting license holder to more than one holder of an apprentice firearm hunting license at a time. The apprentice firearm hunting license shall be void after December 31 of the year of its issuance and may be issued to a person only twice during the person's lifetime. The accompanying firearm hunting license holder shall be subject to all penalties for violations committed by the holder of the apprentice firearm hunting license while under their direct supervision.

As used in this subsection, "direct supervision" means the holder of the apprentice firearm hunting license and the accompanying firearm hunting license holder are hunting together as a unit at the same location.

b. The division may, its discretion, issue an apprentice bow and arrow license to a citizen of the United States above 14 years of age. The division shall not require an applicant to complete a course in bow and arrow safety as a condition of issuing an apprentice firearm hunting license to an applicant. The license shall authorize a licensee to hunt only with bow and arrow and only when accompanied by a holder, above 21 years of age, of a regular resident's or nonresident's bow and arrow license. The apprentice bow and arrow license shall be void after December 31 of the year of its issuance and may be issued to a person only twice during the person's lifetime.
