AN ACT to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to elim-
  inating the requirement that hunters wear  back  tags  during  hunting
  season in the state

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Subdivisions 2 and 3 of section  11-0705  of  the  environ-
mental conservation law, paragraphs (a), (b) and (d) of subdivision 2 as
amended  by  section  24 of part F of chapter 82 of the laws of 2002 and
subdivision 3 as amended by chapter 57 of the laws of 1993, are  amended
to read as follows:
  2.  [a. Holders of a license which authorizes the holder to hunt wild-
life  other  than  big  game,  while  exercising  the privileges of such
license, shall have the back tag issued with their license  attached  to
and  displayed on the back of the outer garment between the shoulders in
such manner that all figures are plainly visible at all times.
  b. Holders of a license which authorizes the holder to hunt big  game,
while  hunting  wild  deer  or bear, shall have the back tag issued with
their license so attached and displayed.
  c. The license tag for the current year only shall be displayed.
  d. Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraphs a, b  and  c  of  this
subdivision,  a  license  holder  shall  not be required to display such
license tag in the Northern Zone or the Catskill Park.
  3.] Failure of a licensee to have the holder's license, tag or license
with stamp affixed, on the holder's person while exercising  any  privi-
lege  of  the  license,  tag  or license and stamp, and to wear in plain
sight any button issued with the license while so doing, is  presumptive
evidence  that  the  holder is hunting, fishing or trapping, as the case
may be, without holding the license, tag or license and  stamp  required
by subdivision 6 of section 11-0703.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
