BILL NUMBER:S5714

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in
relation to authorizing the hunting of big game in the county of
Albany with pistols, rifles, shotguns, and long bows

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Authorizes big game hunting in Albany
County with a pistol, rifle, shotgun, crossbow or long bow for a
period of two years

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1. Items (d) and (e) of
paragraph a of subdivision 2 of section 11-0907 of the environmental
conservation law, as amended by section 11 of chapter 483 of the laws
of 2012, are amended to read as follows: (d) Eastern region, Deer,
first Monday, Pistol, shotgun, except Albany, after November 15
crossbow.

JUSTIFICATION: It is currently legal to hunt big game in Albany County
with shotgun, muzzleloader, bow and pistol, but not with rifles. This
pertains to all areas of the county except Wildlife management Unit 4J
is archery only and encompasses the City of Albany and adjacent
populated and suburban areas. Advances in shooting technology with
regards to shotguns, including the use of rifled shotgun barrels and
specialized ammunition, have given shotguns ballistic characteristics
similar to that of rifles.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: A9724-B/S6849-B: Passed Assembly

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately, provided that
the amendments to items (d) and (e) of paragraph a of subdivision 2 of
section 11-0907 of the environmental conservation law mad by section
one of this act shall be subject to the expiration and reversion of
such paragraph, when upon such date the provisions of section two of
this act shall take effect.
