New Jersey Sportsmen Urged to Attend Hearing for Sunday Bowhunting Bill

A New Jersey bill to allow limited Sunday hunting needs sportsmen’s support.

Senate Bill 2475, introduced by Sen. Stephen Sweeney, D-Bridgeton, would allow Sunday bowhunting. The bill was referred to the Senate Committee on Environment where it is scheduled for a hearing on June 16. New Jersey sportsmen should attend the hearing to support the bill.

Senate Bill 2475 is a companion bill to Assembly Bill 3736, which was introduced by Assemblyman Robert Smith, D-Turnersville. It overwhelmingly passed the Assembly Committee on Agriculture and Natural Resources with four favorable votes and one abstention. Assembly Bill 3736 awaits a vote on the Assembly floor.

Currently, 39 states permit Sunday hunting while 11 states prohibit or heavily restrict it. Sunday hunting provides an additional day in the field, which can be a great opportunity for sportsmen and sportswomen who work during the week.

Take Action! New Jersey sportsmen should plan to attend the Senate Environment Committee hearing at 10 AM on Thursday, June 16. The meeting will be in Committee Room 10 on the 3rd floor of the Annex at the state capitol.

If you cannot attend the committee meeting, contact the Environment Committee members and your senator by phone to ask for support of SB 2475. To contact your senator, call (609) 292-4840 or use the Legislative Action Center at www.ussportsmen.org.

Members of the Senate Environment Committee:

Bob Smith, D-Piscataway - Chair (609) 292- 5339

Stephen Sweeney, D-Bridgeton -Vice Chair (609) 292- 5215

John Adler, D-Cherry Hill - (609) 292-5215

Andrew Ciesla, R-Brick - (609) 292-5199

Henry McNamara, R-Wyckoff - (609) 292-5199

I like the fact that I can get out in the woods on Sunday and look around without worrying about scaring what few deer we have left into another hunter waiting just over the property line. I also like to bring my family into the woods with me and I chose Sunday to do that. I understand why guys want to hunt Sundays. There were many years that sunday was the only day I had off. I wished I could hunt Sunday then!:(

I was thinking about this post on the way home today. I was thinking about the guys that work all week long and have no real chance to spend time doing what they want to do most. Hunt.
I think they should have the same opportunity that hunters have in the 36 other states that allow Sunday hunting.
My comment was made without thinking it through[sad]
