Default NYS New Bill push commercial deer harvest, venison sale

Just read this article in New York Outdoor news and wanted to get some thoughts on all of your ideas on this. These are Bill S233, S239 & S538 in NYS senate. You may review them at: http://public.leginfo.state.ny.us/distsen.cgi

The plan is for $100.00 a hunter with 3 years experence can purchase a liscence to hunt and sell the venison to a registered processor.

My knee-jerk reactions is e-gads! This goes against me beliefs at some fundamental level. I would like to here from individuals who have this type of law in their state and what the rammifications have been.

thanks for your thoughts.

If you check out hispamphlet on the recomendations of the hudson county fruit growers you should see the basis for all of his ideas.
Apparently his donors feel that deer &turkey and other wildlifeare responsibile for lots of crop damage. Realize it hurts the deer pops but on the other hand anything that gives hunters more opps and more economic clout isn't all bad.

I've never heard of it being legal in any state to sell wild deer meat. Looks like NY is opening up a big can of worms here. Sounds like it would be legal to shoot the deer at night or kill them by any means.

I am from NY and do not think this is a good idea at all. That is what wiped out the deer populations once already!

Also in our short season, which you can actually deer hunt somewhere in the state from Sept 27th to January 31st, you can take up to 9 deer per hunter without nuicense tags.
