Governor Signs New Jersey Sunday Bowhunting Bill

5/6/09

 

After over 100 years of limited hunting on Sundays, sportsmen in New Jersey have reason to celebrate after Governor John Corzine signed legislation establishing bow hunting on Sundays.

On Monday, May 4, Gov. Corzine signed Senate Bill 802, sponsored by Senator Stephen Sweeney (D-3).  The bill authorizes licensed bow hunters to hunt deer on Sundays on private property or on state wildlife management lands during deer season.  It will become effective at the beginning of the 2009 bow hunting season this fall.

The bill passed by a wide margin in both chambers of the legislature despite the intense opposition of numerous anti-hunting groups including the New Jersey Animal Rights Alliance and the Humane Society of the United States. After clearing the legislature in mid March, those groups urged anti’s to swarm Gov. Corzine with calls to veto the measure.

“This is great news for New Jersey sportsmen and a great first step,” said vice president for government affairs Rob Sexton.  “As in other states, when leadership sees that Bowhunting on Sunday is no different than any other day, all sportsmen and sportswomen will have the opportunity to hunt on Sunday.

Since 1903, most forms of Sunday hunting had been banned in the state.
