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!
