Governor Jon Corzine hasn't signed S802 into law yet, but he hasn't vetoed it either. S802 will allow bowhunting on Sundays. The hunters already have six out of seven days to kill animals, and now they want all seven. There is increased traffic in the woods during Sundays with bikers, hikers, horseback riders, and citizens who just want to enjoy the natural setting. Just three weeks ago, a Bronx woman was shot with an arrow in a park setting. Bowhunting on Sundays is not good for anybody except for those who want another day to kill animals.
I found this website that exposed what really goes on during a " hunt. " Watch the videos, and decide if bowhunting is a sport or just legalized blood lust. Hunters have always made the lame excuse that they are conservationists too. Watch the videos.
Please make a brief, polite phone call to Governor Corzine at (609) 292-6000 to urge him to veto S. 802. The Governor's staff is taking a tally of the pro and con callers. The call is non-confrontational. Just say, " Tell the Governor to Veto Bowhunting on Sundays. " Call Now. Let's speak for those who can't defend themselves.
