BILL NUMBER:S3757

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 326 of the laws of 2011,
amending the environmental conservation law, relating to allowing the
use of rifles for hunting in Wyoming county, in relation to making
such provisions permanent; and to amend the environmental conservation
law, in relation to making the use of rifles for hunting in Wyoming
county permanent

PURPOSE: This bill would allow the hunting of deer and bear through
the use of a rifle in Wyoming County.

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

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1. Allows for the use of rifles for hunting in Wyoming County.

JUSTIFICATION: At the request of Wyoming county, the county would be
included in those areas where sportsmen and women are able to hunt
deer and bear with rifles. Since 2005, several counties in Southern
and Central New York 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 Wyoming County and the safety
record of hunters in the counties where rifle bunting has been
permitted, it would be reasonable to now permit rifle hunters in
Wyoming County the same opportunities.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill. Similar to: 2011 - S2385A/A2986A 2010
- S.7210-A/A.10775

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately
