BILL NUMBER:S801

TITLE OF BILL:

An act
to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to allowing the
use of rifles for deer hunting in the county of Chautauqua;

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this legislation is to allow sportsmen to hunt deer and
bear in Chautauqua County with rifles.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Item (i) of paragraph a of subdivision 2 of section 11-0907 of the
environmental conservation law, as amended by chapter 412 of the
laws of 2010.

population. This legislation would not allow the use of rifles north

is flat.
