Whereas, the proposal by the United States Department of Agriculture's use of snipers, to kill 3000 of our White-tailed Deer, in the five eastern towns, as an attempt to cull the herd, beginning the month of February 2014, therefore,

We, the undersigned, residents and taxpayers of New York State, specifically, Brookhaven, Southampton, Riverhead, Southold and East Hampton Towns of Suffolk County, New York, earnestly protest against, the culling of our White-tailed Deer herd, in any form or shape. There needs to be changes to the current NYS Environmental Conservation Laws and NYS Hunting Regulations, which will provide changes to and allow for:

1-Hunters to gain more land access

2-Unlimited paperless "DOE" permit for 1C

3-Amend the 500' rule to 150' from dwelling

4-Allow baiting

5-Increase the Deer Hunting Season from Sept.1st - March 1st

6-Allow Bow Hunting during Special Shotgun Season

7-Create a Crossbow Season on Long Island
