legally licensed bow hunter to hunt from an elevated stand at a distance of 150’ from a building or structure.

Why Was NJ’s Bow Perimeter Bill So Important?

You still must have the legal right to be on the property, you can not trespass on posted private property and you can not be within 450’ of a school playground. If we take a quick look at the old 450’ law and draw a circle around a dwelling it excluded 14 acres of huntable area. The new law excludes only 2 acres.

OCT 14, 2010 07:23P.M. Why Was NJ’s Bow Perimeter Bill So Important? By Ed Markowski

This becomes important if your neighbor is an anti hunter and wants to stop you from hunting your own property. If you and your neighbor own adjoining five acre lots the 450’ law would exclude you from bow hunting on almost all of your property. Also it allows the bow hunter to have more of an impact in controlling urban deer populations which before this law passed they did not have access to. These urban deer populations populations are also the ones causing most of the problems. The most common of these being deer car collisions, destruction of trees and plants and the spread of Lyme disease. When hunters have access to a deer population, the State, through the setting of seasons and bag limits can do its job in controlling these populations. Without access there is no control. With each victory by the sportsmen and women of New Jersey comes the responsibility to live up to the high expectations that are being placed on us. New Jersey Bow Hunting Bill Signed Into Law

We will never convince the anti-hunters that we have a right to even exist. It is the non-hunting public that in the end will decide our fate. We have a great opportunity with the passage of the Sunday bow hunting bill last year and the perimeter bow bill this session to show the people of the State of New Jersey that hunters are an important tool in wildlife management. It is important to remember that hunting is a privilege granted by legislation. We must always remember that safety comes first and the best shot very often is the one not taken. If we continue to police our own ranks and prove to the public their trust in us is well deserved we will continue to make strides in increasing hunting, fishing and trapping opportunities in New Jersey.

An Actual ‘NO Policy’ group’s NO BEAR HUNT lawn signs. New Jersey Outdoor Alliance A good illustration of the flaws inherent in a “no” policy can be made from public testimony during the recent hearing on NJ Department of Environmental Protection Black Bear Management Policy. The testimony of animal activist groups such as NJ Sierra, HSUS and others was based on an animal rights philosophy; bears shouldn’t be hunted because they have a “right” to live. Ultimately, the statements made by these groups relied on emotional appeals and half-truths (such as hunting doesn’t cull problem bears). While a “No” policy may be useful posturing for stopping a bear hunt it does not resolve the substance of the matter, which is conservation (sustainable use); the creation of a balance between bears and habitat and minimizing bear/human conflicts.

TRENTON, NJ --(Ammoland.com)- There’s a spokesperson that is often quoted in the media on environmental issues I refer to by the fictitious name, Guru Jane. Guru Jane is quoted on a wide range of proposed environmental policy changes and conspicuously every position taken is, “no.” Excuse the slang, but, “No,” is no environmental policy, at least not a policy with any substance. Whether we are building a home, paving a new road, constructing office space, erecting a manufacturing plant or some other initiative the issue should be measured using a cost/benefit analysis between environmental impacts and economic benefits to society. Unless we have each resigned ourselves to dwelling in tents and living off the wilderness many of our modern day living choices comes with real environmental impacts.

Hunting is Mother Nature’s method of ensuring ecosystem balance. She does not grant animals “rights,” in fact, she uses a food web of predator/prey relationships (animals killing and eating plants other animals) as a means of sustaining life on earth and providing equilibrium in the ecosystem. If Mother Nature were to give plants and animals “rights” to live then how would life on earth be sustained? What would living things use for subsistence? A managed bear hunt not only provides a source of food for the hunter and his or her family, but in New Jersey’s case will help to provide equilibrium in the ecosystem with respect to available habitat and will assist in minimizing bear/human conflicts. Black bears are territorial creatures and culling opens up more territory for bears to recede from human contact as well as achieve reduction of aggregate numbers.

Functioning ecosystems sustain human societies. The food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe are the result of natural processes on which we all depend. On the other hand, building homes, roads, office space and manufacturing plants provide employment opportunities and paychecks for people to feed their families, generate tax revenue that subsidize programs that are of benefit to society and offer opportunities for better living. The key to weighing the merits of environmental tradeoffs is understanding the mechanisms of conservation (sustainable use) and how we might make use of them to work with Mother Nature so that we don’t compromise the integrity of our environment as we sustain or achieve our societal needs or preferences.

A common appeal made during the testimony by animal activists was, “Bears were here first and we shouldn’t kill them because we encroached on their wilderness.” There are two inherent problems in this statement. The first is that it divorces humankind from nature, when in fact we rely on nature for our everyday survival as much as any other living creature and no less than the earliest day our human forms occupied the earth. We’ve simply institutionalized the process through animal farming, agricultural farming and food distribution to the marketplace. The second problem is that the statement lacks ownership. Yes, humankind developed wilderness to accommodate modern day living; however, no one opposing the bear hunt has razed their homes or

Shouldn’t Illegal Immigration Take a Back Seat to Guns OCT 13, 2010 05:07P.M.

The New Jersey Angling and Hunting Conservation Caucus have inspired new legislative leadership. Senators Donald Norcross and Steve Oroho will chair the Senate seats.

Shouldn’t Illegal Immigration Take a Back Seat to Guns Crime Control vs. The Bill of Rights by Arizona State Sen. Russell Pearce

Assemblymen John Burzichelli and Gary Chiusano will chair the Assembly seats. New Jersey joins thirty-eight fellow states of the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses. This sportsmen’s legislative caucus at its inception gathered interest from a bi-partisan group of twenty-six legislators, all having an interest in advancing angling, hunting, trapping, and forestry and conservation issues. The NJAHCC will provide opportunities for legislators, outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen to share information educate and inspire each other about the challenges and possibilities of New Jersey’s forests, marine, fish and wildlife resources.

AmmoLand Gun News Arizona --(Ammoland.com)- The entire world, driven by news reports, has fixated on the enormous illegal-immigrant invasion Arizona has suffered under for years. The invasion had previously been ignored, a news-media black hole from which little information escaped.

The interaction between legislators and the outdoor community will ensure that our traditions and heritage that we cherish will continue and thrive. The New Jersey Outdoor Alliance looks forward with earnest working closely with our state caucus, the sharing of information, ideas and interaction with other state caucuses.

The catalyst for the attention is my bill SB1070, empowering our lawenforcement agencies to deal with the invasion. We passed it because the federal government is aiding and abetting the invaders, instead of stopping them and defending the nation against a flood of biblical proportions.

Anthony P. Mauro, Sr. Chairman, New Jersey Outdoor Alliance: “We’ve got your back!”

But SB1070 is a simple criminal statute, enacted to treat symptoms of a harmful crime — sneaking into our nation to commit felonies, leach off our successes, eat out our substance. A different law, SB1108, for which I am equally responsible, is the more important act.

Visit: www.njoutdooralliance.org

SB1108 is no simple crime-control law. It repeals outrageous infringements to the Bill of Rights, reinstating wholesome fullness to the right to keep and bear arms. The media however, driven by a nearly fanatical racist miasma, blindly focused on the immigration-crime law — finding racism where none exists – at the expense of even noting the strengthened Bill of Rights, despite a packed news conference for SB1108.

Current Pro Conservation Legislation In New Jersey

Civil rights were reborn here on the same day the anti-invasion bill took effect, but this was ignored. While reporters cried racism, “Constitutional Carry” restored fundamental civil rights to anyone on the planet who enters Arizona legally. We’ve extended these rights to all people of Earth.

ensconced it in the Constitution. This was uncontroversial and well understood, a deeply rooted basic human right until recently, when forces of darkness began attacking truths we hold to be self evident.

training regimen is a business-stimulus plan? Private enterprise has launched the TrainMeAZ.com campaign to promote “a culture of marksmanship” and gun safety to every resident. This is Arizona — learn to shoot straight. Marksmanship matters. Teach your children well. Why cover that, even if it is going up on billboards statewide?

Arizona now enjoys more robust protection for the right to arms than anywhere on Earth. How could media pundits miss that? In times recently past, a law that frees every decent adult on Earth to carry a gun with no prior permission would have precipitated a national uproar.

Constitutional Carry and the TrainMeAZ campaign have ignited a firestorm of entrepreneurism, and rekindled a burning desire to restore the nation of marksmen our Founders envisioned.

Are the media just tired of crying wolf? They screamed about imminent blood-in-the-streets when Arizona’s gun-permit law passed in 1994, but nothing ever happened (and they never apologized).

I personally urge America to examine what we’ve done with Defensive Display, Castle Doctrine inside and outside the home, Burden of Proof, Specious Lawsuit Immunity, Firearms Freedom Act and more. Emulate the freedom of spirit thriving in the Grand Canyon State.

They convulsed recently, anticipating wild-west mayhem when gun bans in National Parks were repealed. Nothing happened (not even remorse for the fear mongering). When Arizona’s restaurant gun ban was lifted a year-and-a-half ago, we endured fantasies about impending homicidal frenzy from “shotguns in nightclubs,” but it turned out that breakfast at Denny’s or lunch at Applebee’s remained tranquil. No correction has been issued or is no longer expected.

Visit and experience life as a free adult, not a ward of the state. You may not want to leave. And if you do, you’ll take the spirit of freedom home with you. Russell Pearce is the Republican State Senator from Arizona legislative district 18 and author of the anti-illegal immigration bill SB1070, and the Constitutional Carry law for firearms, SB1108, neither of which are controversial in point of fact.

So should the media pay attention to a law that restores our rights, instead of one that hampers criminals? Does it really matter that states nationwide now seek and are clamoring for Constitutional Carry for themselves?

Learn more about the TrainMeAZ Campaign at http://www.trainmeaz.com

So what if Arizona frees its women to put handguns in their handbags, go about their business, and return home without fear of arrest? The bill’s chief advocates, the Arizona Citizens Defense League (azcdl.org) spent five years reaching this point. Americans are carrying guns but no one’s getting shot? Who cares?

This year’s National Wildlife Refuge Week focuses on our most pristine and undeveloped natural lands, particularly those in the 19.3-millionacre Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2010. “In its vastness, remoteness and beauty, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge awes and humbles us and puts our human ambitions in perspective,” says Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar. Because it is one of the last relatively undisturbed ecosystems on the planet, he notes, the Arctic Refuge is also the site of vital research on climate change, predator-prey relationships and species decline. “This land has been entrusted to the American people,” says Salazar.

Prospects are fair to good.

HARRISBURG, PA --(Ammoland.com)- Pennsylvania Game Commission Executive Director Carl G. Roe today said the agency supports the recent enactment of House Bill 181, and that it – hopefully – will put to rest, once and for all, the false notion that its Wildlife Conservation Officers had “more authority than any other law enforcement officer in the Commonwealth.”

Waterfowl Migration: The Panhandle has good numbers of playa lakes brimming with water. The coast has adequate water but is drying. Pintails, shovelers, teal, gadwalls, wigeons and redheads are showing on the coast. More specklebellies and ducks should show up with the forecasted front. The Panhandle is loading up with teal, pintails, wood ducks, gadwalls and wigeons. The High Plains Mallard Management Unit runs Oct. 23-24 and Oct. 29-Jan. 23, 2011. The North and South zones open Oct. 30.

“For years, the Game Commission has been attempting to correct the misinformation that our WCOs could operate outside the boundaries set by the U.S. Constitution and Supreme Court rulings, especially in relation to search and seizure,” Roe said. “Our WCOs follow all of the constitutional requirements and court-issued rules and regulations regarding searches and seizures. They are trained to do so, and they receive updates on changes in the laws as new court rulings are issued.

About: The Mission of Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, (TPWD), is to manage and conserve the natural and cultural resources of Texas and to provide hunting, fishing and outdoor recreation opportunities for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. Visit: www.tpwd.state.tx.us

“In addition, this bill codifies a 2006 case from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court in which the Court found that Game Commission Officers may act pursuant to the ‘open fields’ doctrine, which permits Officers to enter certain areas, such as pastures and woods, without first having obtained a warrant. However, as specifically noted in the bill, the authority to enter property pursuant to the open fields doctrine does not extend to buildings or curtilage, which is generally defined as the area immediately adjacent to a structure that is generally enclosed and to which an individual has a reasonable expectation of privacy. To enter a building or curtilage, an Officer must first obtain a warrant or be within one of exceptions to the warrant requirement.”

PA Game Commission Supports Enactment Of House Bill 181

Roe also noted that, annually, Game Commission WCOs issue between 9,000 and 10,000 citations for a wide variety of violations, but they also issue 12,000 to 14,000 warnings.

OCT 13, 2010 11:16A.M. PA Game Commission Supports Enactment Of House Bill 181

“While we have maintained a 96 to 97 percent conviction rate for all of the citations issued, we still only record six or seven official complaints as a result of the more than 190,000 law enforcement contacts we have with the public,” Roe said. “With all of the interactions our Officers have with the public, I believe our continued high conviction rate and low number of official complaints speak volumes about the professionalism of our Officers, as well as their adherence to the law. “The bottom line about this new law is that it doesn’t limit the authority of our Officers, it merely brings Title 34 – the law governing their authority – into the 21st century and is now up to date with current case law.” House Bill 181, sponsored by Rep. Bryan Cutler (R-Lancaster), passed the House by a vote of 192-0 on June 1, 2009, and received a unanimous vote in the Senate on Sept. 27. Gov. Edward G. Rendell signed the bill into law on Oct. 7, making it Act 64 of 2010.

SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. --(Ammoland.com)- Prohibiting chronic wasting disease from entering Georgia is an ongoing effort. Anyone interested in wildlife – hunters, wildlife watchers and processors, among others – are encouraged to help keep Georgia’s quality deer herd CWD-free.

PA Game Commission Supports Enactment Of House Bill 181 Tags: Conservation Officers, Fish and Game, Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania Game Commission, Wildlife Officers

CWD, a contagious neurological disease affecting deer, elk and moose, belongs to a group of diseases known as transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, the same group of diseases affecting some domestic animals, including bovine spongiform encephalopathy or “mad cow disease.”

AMMOLAND.COM SHOOTING SPORTS NEWS

Chronic Wasting Disease Not Present In Georgia Deer

Hunters can help reduce the risk of spreading CWD into Georgia by understanding current regulations that prohibit the importation of live cervids and restrict the importation of certain cervid carcass parts from known CWD-infected states.

OCT 13, 2010 11:09A.M. Chronic Wasting Disease Not Present In Georgia Deer Import regulations designed to keep deer herd CWD-free.

“The potential introduction of CWD poses a serious threat to Georgia’s economically and culturally valuable white-tailed deer resource,” explains John W. Bowers, assistant chief of Game Management for the Wildlife Resources Division. “We encourage hunters to be knowledgeable of and to abide by current importation regulations and restrictions.” According to current hunting regulations, importation of any live cervid is prohibited. In addition, importation of any whole cervid carcass or carcass parts from any state with a documented CWD case is prohibited with the following exceptions: boned-out meat, commercially processed meat, meat with no part of the spinal column or head attached, clean skull plates with antlers attached, clean antlers, finished taxidermy heads or clean upper canines (buglers, whistlers, ivories). This fatal disease attacks the nervous system of cervids and to date has been detected in 18 U.S. states and two Canadian provinces, including Colorado, Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming and the Canadian provinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta. Virginia, Missouri and North Dakota discovered their first cases of CWD earlier this year.

Chronic Wasting Disease In Deer

Infected animals develop a characteristic spongy degeneration of the brain, which results in extreme weight loss, abnormal behavior, loss of bodily functions and eventually, death. Though scientific investigations are ongoing, current research suggests that the agent responsible for the disease may be spread both directly (animal to animal contact) and indirectly (soil or other surface to animal). Currently, there is no evidence that CWD poses a risk for humans. Other Georgians can help by reporting any known illegal importation of deer species or carcasses to the department at 1-800-241-4113. Residents also should avoid feeding deer as this unnaturally concentrates animals and increases the likelihood of disease and parasite transmission.

Since 1998, the division has been testing suspect and hunter-harvested deer for evidence of CWD. To date, more than 5,500 deer have been tested with no confirmed positives. The states nearest to Georgia with a confirmed case of CWD are Illinois, West Virginia and Virginia.

SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. --(Ammoland.com)- For the 2009-2010 hunting season, Georgia reported 45 hunting incidents, 14 of which involved firearms. With the upcoming Oct. 16 opening of firearms deer hunting season, hunters are encouraged to review the ‘Ten Commandments of Firearms Safety’ before heading to the woods.

For more information about CWD in Georgia or for general information regarding deer hunting in Georgia, visit the division’s Web site at www.gohuntgeorgia.com and search under “Hunting” and “Game Management.” For more information about CWD in general, visit the Chronic Wasting Disease Alliance’s Web site at www.cwd-info.org .

“Ultimately, each hunter is responsible for keeping themselves and others safe while pursuing deer this hunting season,” says Walter Lane, Hunter Development Program Manager of the Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division.

Any hunter who observes or harvests a deer in Georgia that exhibits CWD symptoms should immediately call a local Wildlife Resources Division office or call 1-800-241-4113.

“This includes respecting all firearms and being absolutely certain of their target.”

• Four: Be sure the barrel and action are clear of obstructions and that only the proper size ammunition is used in the firearm.

• Three: Treat every firearm as if it is loaded.

Hunters Urged To Follow Firearms Safety Ten Commandments

• Five: Always unload a firearm when it is not in use, leave the actions open, and carry empty firearms in a case to and from shooting areas. • Six: Never aim a firearm at anything that you do not intend to shoot. Avoid all horseplay with a firearm. • Seven: Never climb a tree or fence, or jump a ditch or log, with a loaded firearm. Never pull a firearm towards you by the muzzle. • Eight: Never shoot a bullet at a flat, hard surface or at water.
