Bill Would Lower the Threshold for Hunting while Drunk

You should absolutely never hunt drunk. It puts yourself and everyone around you at risk. It is a stupid idea, and New York is doing the right thing by lowering the threshold for what is legal.

According to, the Democratic-controlled state Legislature has passed a measure to lower the legal blood-alcohol content threshold for hunting while intoxicated.

They propose lowering the BAC from 0.10 to 0.08. This would coincide with the drunk driving and boating laws of the state.

The bill now goes to the Governor’s desk were he should sign it into law.

Personally, I believe there should be zero tolerance when it comes to drinking and hunting. It is just too irresponsible. Please wait until after the hunt is over and the guns are put away to kick back with a cold one.
