23:3-22.1. Appeal to council by aggrieved person
Any person aggrieved by the voiding of a fishing license, hunting license, bow and arrow license, or any other license held by that person for a second conviction of a violation of the fish and game laws of this or any other State, or of any provisions of the State Fish and Game Code of this State, or for conviction of negligently causing injury or death to another by gunfire, bow and arrow, or other weapon, may appeal to the Fish and Game Council for an order restoring such license. If the council, after hearing shall, in its discretion, determine that by reason of the minor nature of the violations involved, or of other extenuating circumstances, such license should be restored, it shall direct the director to cause to be endorsed upon said license that the same has been restored and to return such license to said person, but only if the person first completes, to the satisfaction of the Division of Fish, Game and Wildlife, the approved remedial sportsmen education program established and conducted by the division pursuant to section 12 of P.L.1990, c.29 (C.23:3-22.3). Thereafter said license shall be in full force and effect and licenses may be issued to such person notwithstanding said hunting accident or said second conviction, but said conviction shall be counted as a second conviction in determining a third or subsequent conviction.
