Trenton, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine has signed a bill to allow deer hunting on Sundays with a bow and arrow.

The measure signed Monday changes a New Jersey law that once banned all hunting on Sunday. It was originally enacted in 1903, but has been revised over the years to allow for some.

Under the new law, licensed bow hunters are now permitted to hunt deer on Sundays on private property or on state wildlife management lands during deer season.

The bill's sponsors, Republican Assemblywoman Alison Littell McHose and Assemblyman Gary Chiusano, both represent largely rural areas of Hunterdon, Morris and Sussex counties.

They say the measure will be helpful in efforts to control New Jersey's burgeoning deer population. wants to know how New Jersey residents feel about the controversial  news over Sunday hunting. Do you support New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine or are you against the now revised law?
