below is a letter to send to your senate ans assembly to tell them you oppose the bill and want them to vote NO!

I would like to formally state my opposition to A-3275/ S2041, this legislation sponsored by Asym. Michael J. Panter and Asyw Linda R. Greenstein, would change the composition and revise the authority of the Fish and Wildlife Council. This bill is designed to take responsible wildlife management and conservation; based on scientific, time tested and environmentally sound practices and subject them to the whim and frequent changes political climate. Allowing this legislation to become law would create a recipe for disaster for New Jersey's wildlife and ecosystems, as well as create substantial new burdens for New Jersey's taxpayers.

This legislation was referred to the Environment and Solid Waste Committee where Mr. Panter, being a committee member, was able to use his influence as well as his vote to get the bill out of committee. It is clear from those committee discussions and from the avid support from anti-hunting and animal rights extremists, that this legislation is an all out attack on the people who have been most responsible for over 100 years of effective wildlife management and conservation in New Jersey, namely the Fish and Wildlife Council as well as hunters, trappers, and fisherman. A-3275 would change the current make up of the Council from 11 members to 7 politically appointed members and would delete language which requires the Council to set up hunting and fishing regulations for public recreation and food supply and make it the responsibility of the Council to institute non-lethal ways of controlling wildlife populations.

A small but vocal anti-hunting and animal rights extremist's population has managed to convince Mr. Panter that their opinion represents that of the majority of the New Jersey's citizens and that a change is needed in New Jersey's Wildlife management. Nothing could be further from the truth or from the reality of proper Wildlife management; hunters, farmers, fisherman and the multitude of other outdoorsmen and outdoors women along with the Fish and Wildlife council have been responsible stewards and conservationists of New Jersey's natural resources. While admittedly not huge percentage of New Jersey's overall population, these outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen effectively and efficiently provide the State an invaluable asset, while at the same time the revenue generated from their activities provides funding for educational centers, habitat restoration, fish and wildlife stocking programs, the purchase and maintenance of Wildlife Management Areas enjoyed by those from all walks of life, the list goes on and on. The current Fish and Wildlife Council, conservation officers, wildlife biologists, all those with degrees in wildlife sciences as well as the hunters, fisherman, and others that partners with them should be applauded for their efforts and accomplishments not slapped in the face as A-3275/S2041 does.

I am requesting your opposition to and a vote of NO on A-3275/S2041.

I will watch your public response to this bill and vote accordingly

Sincerely

NJfishinGuy,

I'm sorry to see this.

Not sure if you do any saltwater fishing, but you should also look at the ridiculous changes being made to the fluke fishery in NJ and other states.  The quota has been slashed, the minimum size is 17.5 and the season was shortened.  You can see a lot of the coverage in the Asbury Park Press in the fishing section, John Geiser's articles (app.com)

The organizations leading this movement against the fluke fishery are using incredibly flawed science that directly conflicts with the reports of the fishing boat captains who are out there every day.  By all accounts, there are more fluke in NJ and east coast waters than in any time in recent memory, but the flawed science suggests it's not enough.

Keep after them you NJ guys!!!!!!!    It looks like they are going to try and push it through again after the November election.  I've been recently listening to some of the individuals who are pushing and supporting these changes.  I've heard them on the Mark Levin SIRIUS radio program 144, and it's scary.  No matter what talking points are we hear from the politico's, it's clear that their ultimate goal is to eventually outlaw hunting and fishing in NJ. They want to remove all the sportsmen and farmers from the Fish and Game Council, the first step in accomplishing their ultimate goals.
