Rather than doing all this bitching on the Internet, attend the meetings that are going to be held around the state in the next few weeks. There's plenty, across a diverse area of the state.

NYB joins forces with the Muzzleloader Assoc. again showing how willing they are to help, and work with others. But for this they get grief. It seems no matter what they do for hunters they get bashed by some, and its getting old.
I for one like the proposal. Its a increased opportunity for our youth, something this state has to take steps towards. Its a increase opportunity for primitive muzzleloaders in the earlier Southern Tier. Its increased opportunity for bowhunters. Wheres the problem? I love the idea of a youth wknd. I like the idea of a primitive wk of muzzleloading. Being primitive only, won't just turn that wk into a early extension of the Reg. season. Much like its become in the North with Inlines, and scopes. A Oct. 1st archery opener would be great, heck I'd been happy with a Sat. before Columbus day proposal for archers.
This is a great proposal above, and beyond anything the DEC has done for hunters. The DEC increased our license fee's for the 09-10 season. Like many I paid $30 more for the same opportunity I had last season. If more hunting opportunity had been a part of that increase I'd have NO complaint. I also think its great 2 darn good organizations are working together to do something the DEC fails to. Maybe the DEC will finally listen, but I have serious doubts.
1+ Iagree with every thing you said,what a time saver....karl

DEC's proposal in 2005 was better for bow hunters and the NYB fought hard to defeat it. Why come out with this proposal.

Same here, they are no where near a representation of the bow hunters of NY. I for one do not want to see any gun season coming any earlier then it already is, and I am a rifle hunter as well..

As far as crossbows go, I am really up in the air on this one. I think they should be allowed for disabled and elderly, for others I just don't know, I really have to think about that one. Is a crossbow legal for regular season?

I agree! NYB has done a lot of damage to those that would like to bow hunt simply because they are not capable of pulling back a bow. Anybody with a Sr Citizen license should be able to use a cross bow.
