The UBNJ is the State Bowhunting Organization for the State of New Jersey. Incorporated in 1974 as a non-profit organization.

The dedicated council works tirelessly for our memebers and for all bowhunters of New Jersey.


UBNJ is the Statewide Bowhunting Organization in New jersey. Our goal is to promote and preserve our tradition and heritage as bowhunters. But we are for every hunter and more. Since the 1900's, the American Hunter has been the leading Conservationist in the United States; contributing funds, time, and resources to wildlife and the environment. Without hunting, the population of game animals in this country would not be as healthy as it is today.


Our Deer Management program in NJ has grown to over 14 locations with 5000 acres of prime hunting land for our membership. Our main objective for this program is to manage the deer population while offering bow hunters their own private place to hunt. The outcome is less traffic accidents, reduced exposure to lyme's disease and decreased landscaping/agricultural loss. We strive on the following practices for our success:
