BILL NUMBER:S4806

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in
relation to expanding the yearling buck protection program to include
additional wildlife management units

PURPOSE: To expand the yearling buck (Whitetail Deer) protection
program, currently undertaken in parts of Sullivan, Ulster, and Orange
Counties, to Wildlife Management Units 7M and 7P, in Broome, Chenango,
Cortland, and Madison Counties.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Provides that taking of antlered deer shall be
prohibited in WMU 7M and 7P, except when an antlered deer is taken
with at least one antler with at least three points; each point must
be at least one inch measured from the main antler beam.

JUSTIFICATION: This will protect the majority of yearling bucks, 1.5
year old bucks with their first set of antlers, in the Broome,
Chenango, Cortland, and Madison County areas from harvest. This allows
them to get older which means hunters see more bucks and harvest
larger bucks.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New legislation.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
