BILL NUMBER:S2385A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to allowing the use of rifles for hunting in Wyoming county; and providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof

PURPOSE: This bill would allow the hunting of deer and bear through the use of a rifle in Wyoming County.

EXISTING LAW: Environmental Conservation Law Section 11-0907 currently allows the taking of deer in the southern tier region by rifle in Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chemung, Chenango, Herkimer, Madison, Montgomery, Oneida, Oswego, Otsego, Schoharie, Schuyler, Steuben, Tioga, Yates, and a portion of Broome County.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1. Allows for the use of rifles for hunting in Wyoming County.

JUSTIFICATION: At the request of Wyoming county, the county would be included in those areas where sportsmen and women are able to hunt deer and bear with rifles. Since 2005, several counties in Southern and Central New York have been allowed to permit hunting of deer and bear with rifles. There have been very few reported adverse incidents or problems. Given the rural nature of Wyoming 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 Wyoming County the same opportunities.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2010 - S.7210-A/A.10775

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
