New Jersey Assembly to Vote on Two Pro-Hunting Bills Monday!
Please Contact Your Assemblymembers Immediately!
On Monday, March 16 the New Jersey Assembly will be voting on two pro-hunting bills, which if passed, will significantly expand hunting opportunities for sportsmen in the Garden State.
A1669 -, sponsored by Assemblyman John Burzichelli (D-3), authorizes bow hunting on Sundays during the respective deer season dates set by the State Fish and Game Code but only on State wildlife management areas or on private property. A1669 passed the Assembly Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee on Thursday, March 12 by a vote of 5-0. Last October, the Senate version (S802) passed the full Senate by a 32-6 vote.
A595, introduced by Assemblywoman Marcia Karrow (R-23), reduces the distance from 450 feet to 150 feet of an occupied building for a person possessing a nocked arrow for the purpose of hunting.
Anti-hunting organizations have been contacting members of the Assembly and claiming that hunters comprise a small minority of the population and do not deserve to enjoy the outdoors 7 days a week. It is crucial that New Jersey's hunters stand-up and make their voices heard loudly! Please contact your Assemblymembers TODAY and respectfully urge them to expand outdoor opportunities and support the true stewards of the land, New Jersey sportsmen, by voting for A1669 and A595.

I should have posted that. Drat
There are so many deer in New Jersey it is causing them to get sick.
N.J. needs to thin them with a hunting season long enough to help the problem.
More importantly I appreciate your anti abortion info and stance.
