New York Crossbow Coalition is a pro-hunting, grassroots organization dedicated to promoting the hunter recruitment and retention opportunities provided by the modern Crossbow.
New York Crossbow Coalition has formed to advocate for the civil rights of all sportsmen and women of New York regardless of age, sex or physical abilities by pursuing the classification of a crossbow as a legal bow for use in any season where archery equipment is permitted, including archery only areas.
For too long, a well organized group, comprised of a minority of hunters in New York, has effectively controlled the discussion surrounding the crossbow, its effectiveness, and its image, thus controlling all aspects of the crossbows legal uses.
The New York Crossbow Coalition is preparing to counter this vocal minority with factual data and give a voice to the thus far silent majority of the sporting community that desires full inclusion of the crossbow in all aspects of archery hunting.
The hunting population of New York provides 10s of millions of dollars to the state economy, but the number of hunters has steadily declined over the past few decades. Crossbows can help recruit and retain hunters and slow the decline that jeopardizes the future of all traditional outdoor sports.
You can help us elevate the crossbow to its rightful place alongside the compound, recurve and long bows as legal archery equipment by joining New York Crossbow Coalition, either on Facebook or in our yahoo group. You can find links to both of these at www.nycrossbowcoalition.com.
It is time for those in the NY sporting community to stand together and send the pro-crossbow message to Albany with a united voice. Numbers will count in this battle; if you believe crossbows are a bow and should be included in all seasons where archery equipment is allowed, we need you to stand with us. Our voice gets louder with each member.
Together We WILL Succeed!!
