NJOA Calls On Governor To Reopen State Lands To Bear Hunters

Trenton – Sportsmen coalition coalition is unmarred as the State continues to drag their feet

The New Jersey Outdoor Alliance on Monday released a statement calling on the Murphy Administration to reverse his policy and reopen state lands to hunters ahead of the approaching December bear hunting season segment.

“Governor Murphy and his AG’s office can run from the science all they like, but they can’t hide from the truth – the bear hunt is a humane, legal, ethical and most importantly effective means of controlling our exploding bear population.” said NJOA spokesman Cody McLaughlin, “It’s time for Governor Murphy to stop the games and cheap legal parlor tricks that cost real taxpayer money to appease extremist groups with a costly and ultimately doomed-to-fail suit defending his indefensible bear hunt policy.”

In the summer of 2018, Governor Murphy arbitrarily and capriciously restricted bear hunters in the state from pursuing a conservation hunt recommended by the best available science to control the state’s exploding. A coalition of sportsmen’s groups including the New Jersey Outdoor AllianceSportsmen’s Alliance, and Safari Club International brought a lawsuit against the Governor decrying the decision. A decision is currently pending.

About the New Jersey Outdoor Alliance: New Jersey Outdoor Alliance’s mission is “preservation through conservation.” NJOA serves as a grassroots coalition of outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen dedicated to the conservation of natural resources and environmental stewardship that champions the intrinsic value of fishing, hunting and trapping, among opinion leaders, policy makers, and the public at-large.

CWD Response

PGC wants your help and opinions as hunters

We all are familiar with CWD or Chronic Wasting Disease.  The simple fact is that if a deer has it, it will eventually die, period.  That is a serious threat to the existence to our deer and elk herd.  The Pennsylvania Game Commission has laid out an aggressive plan modeled by other states that have successfully "controlled" the disease.  It is not pretty, but it is effective and necessary to guarantee the health the Pennsylvania's deer and elk herd.  I urge you to click on the link below and read the proposed plan.  This PGC is not automatically implementing this plan.  They are asking for the opinion of PA hunters.  Without the support of PA hunters, this plan will not be implemented and nor will it work.

So please read the plan and fill out the "Comment form"  provided in the page.  Like the plan or not, the PGC wants hunter feedback!
