BILL NUMBER:S5105

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to hunting in
the county of Schuyler

PURPOSE:
To permanently allow sportsmen in the county of Schuyler to hunt deer
and bear with a rifle.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
The bill amends Environmental Conservation Law section 11-0907 to add
Schuyler County to the list of counties in which the taking of deer
or bear by rifle is authorized.

EXISTING LAW:
Environmental Conservation Law Section 11-0907 current1y allows the
taking of deer in the southern tier region by rifle in Alleghany,
Cattaraugus, Chemung, Chenango, Herkimer, Montgomery, Oneida, Oswego,
Otsego, Schoharie, Steuben, Tioga, Yates, and a portion of Broome
County.

JUSTIFICATION:
Chapter 600 of the laws of 2005 authorized the taking of deer in
various counties in the southern tier and eastern region of the state.
This decision was based upon the increasing deer population and
declining hunting population which resulted in increased crop damage
and collision with automobiles. Chapter 296 of the laws of 2007
authorized the taking of deer by rifle in Schuyler County. Successful
implementation of the rifle deer hunting change and continuing deer
overpopulation problems in Schuyler County now support the extension
of rifle hunting into this neighboring southern tier municipality.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately, with provisions.
