BILL NUMBER:S3459

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to authorizing
certain individuals to hunt with a muzzle loader

PURPOSE:
To amend the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation law to
authorize a junior small game license 12 years of age or older to
hunt with a muzzle loader firearm.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 11-0701 of the environmental conservation law is amended by
adding a new subdivision 18 to read as follows: 18. A junior muzzle
loading stamp when affixed to a junior small game license entitles a
holder who is twelve years of age or older to hunt wild deer and bear
with a muzzle loading firearm, as provided in title 9 of this
article, in a special muzzle loading firearm season.

JUSTIFICATION:
The future of our hunting sports lies in the recruitment of new and
young people. New York State is the only state which does not allow
youth under the age of 16 to hunt big game with a firearm. These
young hunters are able to go afield for small game hunting with a
firearm at 12 years of age and hunters at age 14 are allowed to hunt
big game with archery equipment. With the creation of a muzzle loader
license, more youth can have the opportunity to enjoy the sport of
hunting.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2010 - S.3266 EnCon Committee.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect on the first of January next succeeding the
date on which it shall have become a law.
