Buckshutem is an unincorporated community within Commercial Township, New Jersey, situated near Buckshutem Creek, nearby Laurel Lake. The name "Buckshutem" is of Native American origin; many speculating that it derives from the phrase "Buck. Shoot 'em", in which many Native American Indians have shot and killed deer for food in order to survive. Some others say that the name is derived from the creek's rapid flow of water as it empties into the brisk wake of the Maurice River, producing a cross current that causes a boat to "buck and shoot" through that section.
