Crossbow Language was not included in the Final Budget!

We are sorry to inform you that that Crossbow Inclusion was not included in the Final Budget Bills.

We are all disappointed, but we will not quit!

The budget is now done and the Legislature will be in Recess until April 16th when they return to complete the remainder of the legislative session. Although crossbows were not part of the budget, there is still time to get this done in 2018. We will be preparing for the push on the Crossbow Bills A479A and S1386A. In the mean time, lets get all of our hunting companions, family and friends signed up and prepared to push on for Full Inclusion!

Thank you to everyone that made the calls.

The 2018 Legislative Session began January 3rd. Bills A479A and S1386A are in their respective Environmental Conservation Committee's.

NYCC is collecting letters of support for these 2 bills along with support letters to the Governor.

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!
