    Take a look at this! https://legiscan.com/NJ/text/S977/2016 Cleared both houses already...

    Guess I'm going to have to cancel that pangolin mount I ordered.

    Neither the eastern subspecies of lion, the southern subspecies of white rhino nor the Cape buffalo are endangered

    In the mean time my taxes and 2A rights go further into the toilet. Self serving politicians have to be voted out of office, now!

    As Pres. Of the Garden State Taxidermists Association, I and a few other people have been keeping an eye on this. Most of this has been rammed through attached to other things in a few of those 1am voting marathons. This is all part of that "Cecil the lion" feel good nonsense. The animal rights folks are jumping all over it, and they found Lesniak to be their mouth piece. Even if you don't hunt out of country, people should write in their displeasure about this bill.

    This nonsense is only for N.J. Any other state or country doesn't apply. Cape buffalo are like the whitetail deer over here, plenty. Another feel good chest thumping bill to side step the real issues that plague N.J.

    It contradicts itself says that if there is no hunting season for a species it it's not a game animal than excludes the big 5.. there is a season there for them our legislators and government should have no say what we can legally hunt out if the state let alone the country
