Found this over on AT NY Hunters - Time to Fight AND BE HEARD Just received a note from the NYSCC... See Below. We need everyone to take a few minutes of your time (NY Residents) and support A733, which is the Youth Big Game Hunting bill (firearms) which will lower hunting age from 16 to 14. WE NEED ALL SPORTSMEN, WOMEN AND YOUTH TO E-MAIL ASSEMBLYMAN ROBERT SWEENEY, CHAIRMAN OF THE NYS ASSEMBLY ENVIRONMENTALCONSERVATION COMMITTEE, AND THE REST OF THE COMMITTEE WITH YOUR SUPPORT FOR BILL A733. This is the Youth Mentoring Bill that would allow youth 14 years and older to hunt big game when accompanied by a licensed hunter over 21. Only one gun would be allowed for the two hunters. Assemblyman Sweeney and the EnCon Committee needs to hear from EVERYONE who supports this legislation. I received a call from Assemblywoman DelMonte's office saying that this bill was not being acted on in the Assembly EnCon Committee, and THEY NEED TO HEAR FROM SPORTSMEN! LET US BE HEARD LOUD AND CLEAR THAT WE WANT OUR YOUTH TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO HUNT BIG GAME IN NEW YORK STATE! Assemblywoman DelMonte's office stressed that it is especially important to contact the downstate members of the Assembly EnCon Committee; we need their help to move this bill through the Committee. E-MAIL Assemblyman Sweeney at [email protected]. Send the email to the other members of the Assembly EnCon Committee (listed below), and contact your local legislator with the same information. Follow up with a letter or postcard; and any youth contacting their legislators should include his or her age.
