BILL NUMBER:S2486

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to establishing
the open season for hunting coyote

PURPOSE:
Establishes the open season for hunting coyotes as October 1 through
May 31.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 amends paragraph 0 of subdivision 2 of section 11-0905 of
the environmental conservation law to extend the open hunting season
of coyote from October 1 through May 31.

Section 2 This act shall take effect immediately.

EXISTING LAW:
Currently the coyote hunting season is October 1 through March 28.

JUSTIFICATION:
Concerns have been raised that the deer and other wildlife populations
in Essex County and other areas of the state suffers from severe
depredation during the winter months from coyotes attacking, chasing
or worrying deer and other wildlife.

The coyote population has ballooned and over-population exists which
further endangers and harasses landowner's pets and farm animals in
addition to the deer, rabbit, turkey, grouse and other small game
population.
