All sportsmen and friends are welcome!
The Federation’s main web page has explained the object of the Federation which is to act as your advocate and unite all sportsmen of New Jersey for the purpose of securing local, county and state wide action in conservation, hunting and fishing. The Federation works proactively with legislators, Fish, Game & Wildlife, and the Department of Environmental Protection to enhance all sporting opportunities and resources.
Along with club membership, the Federation offers individual membership benefits. For dues of $30.00, you can become an Insured Member, receive $1,000,000 excess liability insurance, membership certificate and the Federation Newspaper. County Federation Clubs send delegates to monthly meetings to discuss local, county and state problems. The meetings are usually attended by a Fish & Game Council person as well as the local Conservation Officer.
