Notice of Rule Proposal
Amendments to 2004-2005 Game Code N.J.A.C. 7:25-5

Public Notice
Take notice that the NJ Fish and Game Council is proposing amendments to the 2004-2005 Game Code. The Fish and Game Council, in response to harvest totals from the 2003-2004 hunting and trapping seasons, and scientific information provided by the Division of Fish and Wildlife, proposes to revise the Game Code for the 2004-2005 hunting and trapping seasons. Amendments will affect season length, harvest limits, changes in methods of take and make calendar date adjustments to existing seasons. Calendar date changes were made to the bear, deer, upland game and furbearer trapping seasons. The non-toxic shot requirement is extended to most webless migratory bird hunting, beaver trapping quotas are increased in selected zones and regulations governing deer hunting on selected federally controlled areas are amended at the request of the administering agency. Falconers are allowed to possess eyass goshawks legally acquired in other states.

The Proposal is scheduled to be published in the New Jersey Register dated May 17, 2004. A copy of the proposal is available from the NJDFW website, NJDFW offices, by writing the NJDFW, PO Box 400, Trenton, NJ 08625 and Westlaw Publishing at 1-800-808-WEST. Be advised that there may be a fee for obtaining a copy of the proposal from some sources.
