Default Support Crossbow Bills in New York


A major crossbow push involving the Department of Environmental Conservation is currently taking place in New York. Senate Bill S06793, sponsored by Senator David Valesky, and Assembly Bill A00924, sponsored by Assemblywoman Francine DelMonte, authorizes the Department of Environmental Conservation to promulgate standards authorizing hunting with a crossbow by June 30, 2011. The bills are scheduled to come to the floor on June 2, 2010.

Every major New York sportsman group from the New York Conservation Council is in full support of this change and is asking their members to get in contact with their legislatures. Both Senator Valesky and Assemblywoman DelMonte have also asked for the NRA's support for their bills. Please support this legislation by sending a letter of support to all members of the Senate and Assembly Environmental Conservation Committees as soon as possible. To send a letter, copy and paste the following letter(s), add your name and address, then copy and paste the email addresses.

Remember, the fight for crossbows is not about their usage. Rather, it is about when they should be used. In order to use them at all, this legislation must be passed to empower the DEC to have crossbows as an option.

Letter to the Senate:

Hello Senate Member,

Please SUPPORT S6793. For far too long crossbows have been left off the list of tools that can help us manage our deer herd. We need to empower the DEC to regulate the timely implementation of this additional asset.

Thank You For Your Support,
