    Is there a difference between hunting(which requires a hunting license) versus pesting? Do I need a hunting license to pest in my own private backyard?

    For pesting, I can go to home depot and pick up poison, glue traps, etc.. to eliminate these critters in my private backyard, all without a license.

    But if I use an airgun to pest, I will need a firearms license(to possess the rifle legally) + hunting license?

    Talk about irony and terminology…

    Pest and Hunting is the same in NJ unless you are a farmer and if you are a farmer you do not require a hunting license if you are on your own property. 

    As airguns are classified as firearms in NJ many if not all towns have restrictions with discharging firearms within specific proximity of other properties. So yes pesting in your backyard can be illegal if town does not allow firearm discharged.
