BILL NUMBER:S5106

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to hunting in
the counties of Chemung, Steuben, and Yates

PURPOSE:
To permanently allow sportsmen in the counties of Chemung, Steuben and
Yates to hunt deer and bear with a rifle.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
The bill amends Environmental
Conservation Law section 11-0907 to add Chemung, Steuben and Yates
Counties 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 currently allows the
taking of deer or bear 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 Chemung, Steuben and
Yates Counties. Successful implementation of the rifle deer hunting
change and continuing deer overpopulation problems in Chemung,
Steuben and Yates Counties 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.
