NYS Crossbow hunting & season wrong from day one

Recommended Posts

What is your position on the fact that crossbow hunters in NYS are allowed into the field at the absolute best time of the season with a weapon that is basically equal to having a muzzle loader and which takes about the same skill level as using one to kill any whitetail deer?

Aside from the fact that I’m 100% for keeping this the same for “Any hunter who for any reason can ONLY hunt with a crossbow.”…

This is what I say:

For traditional bowhunters this is a bunch of bunk. Who came up with this BS, the bowhunting industry, greedy and corrupt NYS looking for the license fees, or the “easy way out” club who needs everything “given” to them like the way their weak, spoiling parents gave them, or did they all sit down and have a “meeting” to steamroll past any opposition from the real bowhunters?

So here's my proposal:

“The crossbow season in NYS for any individual who does NOT NEED a crossbow to hunt shall now be a late season at the same time as late archery and late muzzle loader.”

       Dude, I don't agree with you..    Look, I have never Taken a Deer. Not much interest. However--- if CrossBow opened with early Archery on October 1st in DEC Zone 3 in Orange County--  I would buy a Crossbow- practice up and be out there.   

       I don't care for the Rifle opener. I know, I won't see Jacks&+$ while freezing my ass off on Public Land.    I have also wrote here that, I see many Bucks in September while Hiking.      The CrossBow Season should start on the Early Archery Opener.      Instead of Hiking within 40 Feet of a Young Buck, I could be taking him down with a CrossBow.

Other than having just 3 days before the guns come in in the nz, I am quite content with the ny crossbow season.  Having the best 2 weeks of the archery season in th sz has worked out well very well for me.  

A couple tweaks that would make things better would be, add 11 days to the nz, and also limit the vertical compound guys to the last 14 days.  Traditional archery guys like the OP deserve some early time to themselves.

I've probably been bow hunting, longer than you've been alive. My bow is still my first love. Nothing will ever give me the thrill I get, from taking a deer with my bow. But.....I like hunting with a crossbow a few days a season too! Nothing wrong with it. To each their own. No one says YOU have to use a crossbow! Are you afraid a crossbow hunter will shoot YOUR deer??? If so, become a better bow hunter.

C'mon man..... you can do better with a first post.

1st your 30 years to late to support traditional bow hunting , that went out the door with the compound. ....

2nd doesn't bother me In the least ,i still hunt with what archery equipment i want and you can as well.

3rd hope they put it as archery equipment in whole season, and obviously you have never really.shot black powder or a crossbow..

Hummm.  Only 1 post, and a controversial one at that. 

No second post because it's ( I say it's, because who knows what "it" identifies as.) and I don't want to insult "it" because I really don't know what bbG identify's as....  If it was BBQ.  I might be able to relate. Just doing my best to be as politically correct as possible.

Will cross guns have the full season this year or still just the 2 weeks?

Bill is in house ,but they are meeting infrequently,  more than likely I would say it's not going anywhere fast, but if you want it call and write your representatives maybe they will push it thru, to late to be Included in syllabus as that's already printed for this year

       Alot more Hunters like me would jump on the bandwagon if CrossBow opened " with" Early Archery Deer.  Alot more Money would be coming in as well.     I don't think the Author above-- will post again. It could be - 1 and Done.

Why not buy a compound and hunt THIS 10/1?

Has anyone considered two archery seasons. 1- a traditional archery season with self bows, and recurves with no stabilizers, sights, releases and wooden arrows with solid broadheads. and 2- a modern archery season with compound bows with sights, stabilizers and releases. Arrows could be any material desired with any non-barbed broadhead. Crossbows would  be included  as modern archery equipment.

Have traditional archery run from 27 Sept. to  15 Oct. Modern archery would then run till regular big season.

Not interested in a Compound. Crossbow- more so.
