BILL NUMBER:S2418

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to providing
for a special archery season for the taking of antlerless deer

PURPOSE:
This bill relates to subdivision 3 of section 11-0907 of the
environmental conservation law, which is amended by the addition of a
new paragraph that allows for a special seven day archery season, for
antlerless deer only, in the Northern Zone of New York State.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This bill provides that in a special open season, there would be the
taking of antlerless deer only, by the use of a bow and arrow only,
by holders of a small and big game, sportsman, or free sportsman
license to which a valid bowhunting stamp is affixed or to holders of
a junior archery, resident or non-resident super sportsman, or
non-resident bow hunting license. Such a special season shall include
the seven day period immediately following the close of the regular
rifle season stated in clause a or column two of the table set forth
in subdivision two of this section.

JUSTIFICATION:
Deer hunting has always been a long standing tradition and an
important part of New York's outdoor heritage. The Southern Zone for
New York State continually has a late archery season, yet the
Northern Zone has been excluded of this privilege. The Department of
Environmental Conservation has expressed that the extension of the
antlerless deer harvest is necessary in order to maintain more
adequate herd control. Several other states such as Ohio,
Pennsylvania, and Connecticut have an extended archery season ending
on January 15th or January 31st.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2009-10: S.2928 En Con Committee

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect on the one hundred eightieth day after it
shall have become law.
