Notice of Rule Proposal
Game Code N.J.A.C. 7:25-5

PUBLIC NOTICE
Take notice that the NJ Department of Environmental Protection is proposing amendments.  A statement of the substance of the proposal follows: The proposed 2017-2018 Game Code, N.J.A.C. 7:25-5, provides when, under what circumstances, in what location, by what means, and what amounts and numbers, game-birds, game animals and fur-bearing animals may be pursued, taken, killed or had in possession. Since the early 1900s, the Game Code has provided a system for the protection, propagation, increase, control and conservation of game birds, game animals, and fur-bearing animals in this State and for their use and development for public recreation and food supply. Biennial revisions of season dates, bag limits and other regulations based on scientific investigation and research ensures the greatest likelihood of success in reaching these goals.

The proposal is scheduled to be published in the New Jersey Register dated April 3, 2017.  A copy of the proposal is available from:  http://www.nj.gov/dep/rules/proposals/20170403a.pdf; LexisNexis free public access to the New Jersey Register, www.lexisnexis.com/njoal).
