In New Jersey, well... damned if I know. I learned to drive in PA. Apparently I can see the critters much better than 99% of the other drivers in this state. But I guarantee you I'd get the cops called on me on account of being crazy if I stopped and strapped one to the hood.
Now, I love venison, but I have no idea where I could get one butchered around here, and I've never field dressed one either. If I had confidence in either, I'd do it in a heartbeat.
