New Jersey Governor Okays Sunday Bowhunting
By Dave Hurteau
Having so brazenly shot down the Garden State’s bear season, Gov. Jon Corzine has a long way to go to endear himself to sportsmen. But this won’t hurt—even if he didn’t have much choice politically—from the Star Ledger:
Gov. Jon Corzine signed a bill yesterday to let archers take aim at the Garden State's deer population on the Sunday, which has historically been off-limits to hunters pursuing whitetail. Although sponsored largely by legislators from districts with large deer herds, the law receivedoverwhelming support in both the Assembly and the Senate.
The usual anti-hunting groups are outraged.
