Fellow Bowhunters, Many of you have dreamed about harvesting a New Jersey black bear with archery equipment. This is finally within reach but your voice needs to be heard to make this a reality. The comment period is now open and we want members and friends of the UBNJ to flood the DEP with comments in support of the regulation changes. Without your support, the antis will have another victory and we may not have this chance again for another generation. Please share this email with your family and friends!
You may supply your comments online or in writing. Online submissions take less than 60 seconds, so visit here to submit your comments and be heard. http://www.nj.gov/dep/rules/comments/
Make sure to select DEP Dkt No. 04-15-04 – Game Code NJAC. Add your own comments or just copy and paste the sentence below:
I am a member or friend of the United Bowhunter’s of New Jersey and I full support the Game Code changes to allow archery as a safe and effective method of harvesting black bear in New Jersey.
