BILL NUMBER:S6801

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to allowing the
use of rifles for hunting in Cayuga county;
and providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
This bill would allow the hunting of
deer and bear through the use of a rifle in Cayuga County.

EXISTING LAW:
Environmental Conservation Law Section 11-0907 currently
allows the taking of deer by rifle in counties such as Allegany,
Cattaraugus, Chemung, Chenango, Herkimer, Madison, Montgomery,
Oneida, Oswego, Otsego, Schoharie, Schuyler, Steuben, Tioga, Wyoming
and Yates.

JUSTIFICATION:
Cayuga County, has requested to be added to the list of
counties where sportsmen and women are able to hunt deer and bear
with rifles. Since 2005, several counties in the Finger Lakes Region,
Central New York and the Southern Tier have been allowed to permit
hunting of deer and bear with rifles. There have been very few
reported adverse incidents or problems. Given the rural nature of
Cayuga County and the safety record of hunters in the counties where
rifle hunting has been permitted, it would be reasonable to now
permit rifle hunters in Cayuga County the same opportunities.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
