What is in Store for 2017

In 2014 Governor Cuomo included Crossbow Full Inclusion in his Executive Budget. The Senate also included it in their Budget Bill, but the Assembly opposed it. We reached out to our membership and had everyone calling their legislators and the Assembly leadership to adopt the Crossbow language. As the clock ticked down to the final days of the budget process, we made our voices heard resulting in the compromise and the crossbow regulations we have today.

It is time to be heard again!

Are you Satisfied

  • Being denied the ability to use your crossbow until the last 10 Days of Northern Zone and 14 days of Southern Zone Archery Seasons?

  • Having to purchase a Muzzleloader Privilege instead of a Bow Privilege to use your Crossbow?

  • With the 200 lb. draw weight restriction that eliminates many recurve crossbows?

  • With the minimum width restriction that eliminates the new reverse limb crossbows from Horton and Stryker because the widest point is not at the tip of the limbs?

  • Do You Believe

  • A Crossbow is another form of a Bow and should be classified as Archery Equipment, as it is in the majority of other states?

  • A Crossbow should be legal for all game, during all seasons, and in any location where Archery equipment is permitted?

  • A Crossbow should be permitted during the Youth Deer Hunt over the Columbus Day Weekend?

  • A Crossbow should be legal for Bowfishing?

  • A Crossbow should be legal in ALL Archery Only Areas?
  • New York Crossbow Coalition
    Is NOT Satisfied Either!
