TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in
relation to authorizing hunting in the county of Wayne; and providing
for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof
PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill would allow the hunting of
big game through the use of a rifle in all of Wayne County.
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Paragraph a of subdivision 2 of section
11-0907 of the environmental conservation law is amended by adding a
new item (k) to include the county of Wayne.
JUSTIFICATION: Wayne County, by Resolution No. 258-2013, has
requested to be added to the list of counties where sportsmen and
women are able to hunt big game with rifles. Since 2005, several
counties in the Finger Lakes Region, Central New York and the Southern
Tier have been allowed to permit hunting of big game with rifles.
There have been very few reported adverse incidents or problems. Given
the rural nature of Wayne County and the safety record of hunters in
the counties where rifle hunting has been permitted, it would be
reasonable to now permit rifle hunters in Wayne County the same
PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.
EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately and be deemed
repealed on October 1, 2015.
