BILL NUMBER:S6325

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to muzzle-loading deer hunting seasons in the southern zone

PURPOSE: The purpose of this bill is to extend the current muzzle-loading deer hunting season to fourteen days in the southern zone.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Sections 1 of the bill amends subdivision 8 of section 11-0907 of the environmental conservation law to extend the current muzzle-loading deer hunting season to fourteen days in the southern zone.

Section 2 of the bill is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Currently, New York statutes limit the muzzle-loading deer hunting season to just seven days in the Department of Environmental Conservation's Southern Zone. Extending this season to 14 days will provide New York hunters and sportsmen with a greater opportunity to enjoy their particular sport within New York. The muzzle-loading deer hunting season does not interfere with other hunting seasons in New York and this modest extension would help in proper management. of the deer population.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the 60th day after it shall have become a law.
