BILL NUMBER:S6705

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

PURPOSE:
To permit the use of crossbows for hunting big game during
the regular southern tier big game season.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Amends current law section 11-0907 to conform
Cortland County to other counties for participation in the
experimental crossbow season that expires December 31, 2012, or, if
crossbow authorization is extended, the bill would expire on January
1, 2014, when last year's bill (S.1683A) authorizing the use of
rifles for hunting big game expires.

EXISTING LAW:
Cortland County was left out of legislation permitting
the use of crossbows for big game hunting.

JUSTIFICATION:
While crossbow hunting was extended on an experimental
basis in 2011 for the 2011 and 2012 big game seasons, Cortland
County was not included.

Both sportsmen and the Cortland County Legislature have requested that
the use of crossbows be included in the list of permissible weapons
with which to hunt big game so that Cortland County conforms to other
counties where the use of crossbows is permitted.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None to the state. May increase revenue to the
Conservation Fund.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately and shall expire and be
deemed repealed on the earlier of either the date on which
item (j) of paragraph a of subdivision 2 of section 11-0907 of
the environmental conservation law is repealed pursuant to
chapter 323 of the laws of 2011, or the date on which chapter
483 of the laws of 2010 expires and is repealed pursuant to
section 17 of such chapter.
