2015-2016 Game Code Amendments To Be Proposed

July 15, 2014

The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife is informing the public that the NJ Fish and Game Council voted to propose several amendments to the 2015 - 2016 Game Code at its July 8 meeting. The Game Code governs the activities relating to the taking of wildlife classified as game animals, game birds, or furbearers.

The Council's decision begins the rule-making process for amending the Game Code. A legal document with the proposed amendments will be prepared and published in the NJ Register, probably in early 2015. The publication will be followed by a sixty-day public comment period and a public hearing.

After the public hearing and close of the comment period, all comments are compiled and reviewed by the Fish and Game Council. The Council may or may not make changes and a final vote will be taken. After a second publication in the NJ Register the amendments that are accepted by the Council will be legal.

To view the list of proposed amendments, see www.njfishandwildlife.com/pdf/2014/gamecode15proposal.pdf (pdf, 150kb).

For information on the process of amending the Game Code, see www.njfishandwildlife.com/codechange.htm on the Division's website.
