New Jersey Sunday Bow Under Attack! – Email / Fax / Call Governor Now!
“We ask all Hunters, even if you are not from NJ, please call, fax, email and write our governor. Tell him to listen to the majority and sign the Sunday Bow Hunting Bill. – AmmoLand”
Trenton, NJ – -(AmmoLand.com)- Below are snippets of emails I have received regarding the horseback riders attempts to have the Sunday Bow bill vetoed. I have also added a few links to forums that will provide an idea as to the sentiments of some of the horseback riding community. The sense of entitlement and the degree of prejudice against hunters is eye-opening.
I have called the Governor’s office scores of times and have not been instructed to “FAX” him as a means of getting greater attention for my support of Sunday Bow. However, the horseback riders have been given advice to fax him. I have included a letter (at the very bottom of this email) that should be fax’d to the Governor. Let’s be sure to fax the letter to him!

Anti Sun Bow Quotes:
“When I called the Governor’s office today “THEY” suggested that I fax them. I made the suggestion that the Governor “conditionally veto” these hunting on Sunday bills. If he were to outright “veto” them, they have a majority vote in the Senate and they will just overturn them. If he conditionally vetos them, he can made suggested changes in them, and we’d have a chance to have them pass.

My neighbor told me she read an article on April 1st in the Asbury Park Press written by a hunter (Charles A. Sylvester, Neptune City) who stated: “the wildlife management areas are bought and paid for by the hunters.” I immediately questioned his statement for I knew that was an out and out lie and decided to do a little research.”

Re: Bill A1669 / S802
Sunday Bow Hunting
Dear Governor Corzine:
The above legislation now awaits your signature and its passage is extremely important to me. As a conservationist I am committed to responsible stewardship of our state’s natural resources and Sunday Bow Hunting helps in this endeavor.
The bill will ensure better manage New Jersey’s deer overpopulation. Every lifeless roadside deer is the result of a car accident, an accident that caused financial loss and perhaps personal injury or death.
The bill will help reduce agriculture losses due to deer feeding currently estimated to be 20% per year, reduce residential landscape damage and the transmission of Lyme disease. Sunday bow hunting will help to boost New Jersey’s hunting license revenue, aid the state’s ailing economy by drawing non-resident dollars, repeal an antiquated blue law and bring New Jersey in line with 43 states that currently allow bow hunting on Sundays.
The bill restricts bow hunting to private property and Wildlife Management Areas only. WMAs were originally purchased entirely from the sale of hunting and fishing licenses and operational funding is still provided entirely by hunters and anglers. Sunday bow only amounts to 14 days per year but is of great value to people currently obligated to family and work responsibilities.
Governor Corzine, I am one of 650,000 New Jerseyans who hunt, fish and vote. I ask that you sign the Sunday Bow hunting bill into law.
