DEEP Backs Sunday Bowhunting Bill

Mar 20th, 2014 | By | Category: Deer, Wildlife

Bowhunting deer on private property on Sundays would be permitted under a bill supported by Energy and Environmental Protection Commissioner Robert Klee as a deer population control measure.

The bill aims to help manage Connecticut’s overabundant white-tailed deer population by allowing property owners to hunt deer on Sundays with bows. In written testimony, Klee said his department would prefer the bill be modified to limit the Sunday hunting to “deer management zones,” where deer have overpopulated and become destructive.

Connecticut deer aren’t going to like this…the legislature is considering allowing hunting on Sundays.

The proposal, backed by the Department Of Energy And Environmental Protection, would be for the bowhunting season, and only on private property.

    Now the CT DEEP wants to “Leave No Child Left Inside” *** except Sundays during hunting season while hiking on blazed trails on private land! The devils in the details.
