Memo

BILL NUMBER:S3929

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to authorizing hunting in the county of Ontario; 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 Ontario County.

EXISTING LAW: Environmental Conservation Law Section 11-0907 currently allows the taking of deer by rifle in counties such as Allegany, Cattaraugus, Cayuga, Chautauqua, Chemung, Chenango, Herkimer, Madison, Montgomery, Oneida, Oswego, Otsego, Schoharie, Schuyler, Steuben, Tioga, Wyoming and Yates.

JUSTIFICATION: Ontario County, by Resolution No. 417-2012, 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 Ontario 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 Ontario County the same opportunities.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately and be deemed repealed on October 1, 2015.
