Gov. Hochul Vetoes Opt-Out Bill For New York's 'Holiday Hunt'
Gov. Hochul Vetoes Opt-Out Bill For New York's 'Holiday Hunt'
As reported here on December 6th, the New York State Legislature had passed a bill that would have allowed counties to opt-out of the 2021 'Holiday Hunt' law, which added a deer hunting period from December 26th through January 1st each year in the designated Southern Zone of New York State. For those non-hunters, the Southern Zone is just about everything south of the Adirondacks. Democratic State Senator, John Mannion sponsored the opt-out bill and another powerful democrat put an end to his endeavor.
