BILL NUMBER: S4127

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to
allowing the use of rifles for hunting in the county of Schuyler


PURPOSE :
To allow sportsmen in Schuyler to hunt deer with a rifle.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
The bill amends Environmental Conservation law section 11-0907 to add
Schuyler County to the list of counties in which the taking of deer by
rifle is authorized.

EXISTING LAW :
Environmental Conservation Law Section 11-0907 currently allows the
taking of deer in the southern tier region by rifle in Alleghany,
Cattaraugus, Chemung, Chenango, Herkimer, Madison, 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 by rifle
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 Schuyler County 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.
