not sure if this belongs here the gen. discussion section is firearms related only though. but this about hunting so i hope its relevant. yesterday afternoon in the NJ general assembly 2 bills were voted on, A1669 which approves SUNDAY bowhunting for DEER. A1669 is heading to our gov. to be signed,hopefully he does the right thing and signs it into law.

bill A595a was approved in the NJ gen. assembly as well,its being sent to the senate to voted on there. Bill A595a approves a closer safety zone distance,150' instead of the already in place 450' safety zone distance. its limited to bow and arrow only for deer,and must be in a treestand. maybe it gets changed just a taste,so you do not need to be in a stand,but just elevated enough that your shot is at a downward angle should it pass through the deer or miss it. that being said if you must only be in an elevated position i could shoot from my roof at deer if i wanted to,after the law is passed :)

NJ hunters,outdoorsman and women please call,write,email your senators and get A595a passed and Senate related Bill of S976 too. email Gov. Corzine and ask the he support and sign Bill A1669 into LAW when he receives it soon.

Re: Bill A1669 / S802

Sunday Bow Hunting

Dear Governor Corzine:

The above legislation now awaits your signature and its passage is extremely important to me. As a conservationist I am committed to responsible stewardship of our state’s natural resources and Sunday Bow Hunting helps in this endeavor.

The bill will ensure better manage New Jersey’s deer overpopulation. Every lifeless roadside deer is the result of a car accident, an accident that caused financial loss and perhaps personal injury or death.

The bill will help reduce agriculture losses due to deer feeding currently estimated to be 20% per year, reduce residential landscape damage and the transmission of Lyme disease. Sunday bow hunting will help to boost New Jersey’s hunting license revenue, aid the state’s ailing economy by drawing non-resident dollars, repeal an antiquated blue law and bring New Jersey in line with 43 states that currently allow bow hunting on Sundays.

The bill restricts bow hunting to private property and Wildlife Management Areas only. WMAs were originally purchased entirely from the sale of hunting and fishing licenses and operational funding is still provided entirely by hunters and anglers. Sunday bow only amounts to 14 days per year but is of great value to people currently obligated to family and work responsibilities.

Governor Corzine, I am one of 650,000 New Jerseyans who hunt, fish and vote. I ask that you sign the Sunday Bow hunting bill into law.

Sincerely,
