S802, sponsored by State Senators Stephen M. Sweeney (D-3) and Kevin J. O’Toole (R-40), was passed by a 5-1 vote. Simply put, S802 authorizes deer hunting with bow and arrows on Sundays.
The second bill, S976, was approved by a 6-0 margin. S976 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.
S802 and S976 now make their way to the Senate floor for its consideration.
