Memo

BILL NUMBER:S5105

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to hunting in the county of Schuyler

PURPOSE: To permanently allow sportsmen in the county of Schuyler to hunt deer and bear with a rifle.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: The bill amends Environmental Conservation Law section 11-0907 to add Schuyler County to the list of counties in which the taking of deer or bear by rifle is authorized.

EXISTING LAW: Environmental Conservation Law Section 11-0907 current1y allows the taking of deer in the southern tier region by rifle in Alleghany, Cattaraugus, Chemung, Chenango, Herkimer, Montgomery, Oneida, Oswego, Otsego, Schoharie, Steuben, Tioga, Yates, and a portion of Broome County.

JUSTIFICATION: Chapter 600 of the laws of 2005 authorized the taking of deer in various counties in the southern tier and eastern region of the state. This decision was based upon the increasing deer population and declining hunting population which resulted in increased crop damage and collision with automobiles. Chapter 296 of the laws of 2007 authorized the taking of deer by rifle in Schuyler County. Successful implementation of the rifle deer hunting change and continuing deer overpopulation problems in Schuyler County now support the extension of rifle hunting into this neighboring southern tier municipality.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately, with provisions.
