New Jersey Adds Sunday Hunting.

NJ lifts long-standing ban on Sunday bow hunting.

Published: Wednesday, May 6, 2009 8:05 PM CDT

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 It was originally enacted in 1903, but has been revised over the years to allow for some.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.

    Well I am sure that there are a lot of happy hunters out there, with the fact that they now can hunt over the entire weekend. I guess during hunting season many women won't be seeing their husbands.:)
