Hunting Reforms Pass in Connecticut!

Thursday, May 6, 2010

On Tuesday, May 4, before the legislature adjourned at midnight, the Connecticut State House of Representatives passed Senate Bill 207, as amended by the State Senate. This bill would establish a credit to those who purchased a hunting or fishing license, permit or tag between October 1, 2009 and April 14, 2010 at the unjustified price increase imposed this year.  This credit would be applied to any such license, permit or tag purchased by an individual on or after October 1, 2010 and help provide restitution to the affected sportsmen.

This bill also allows Connecticut residents, who hold a valid Connecticut permit-to-carry, to hunt deer on privately owned land, using a handgun, specifically, revolvers or single shot pistols from November 1 to December 31.   

SB 207 now heads to the desk of Governor Jodi Rell (R) for her consideration.  Please call Governor Rell and urge her to support Senate Bill 207.  Governor Rell can be reached at 860-566-4840 and Governor.Rell@ct.gov
