I got it yesterday. Sent out the electronic letter and received a generic reply from Sen. Murphy.

Were fighting it as much as we can. We need letters and phone calls to the Senate and Assembly En Con Chairmen and members.

Charlie, does NYB have your e-mail? Call the office and ask Annie. She will take it down and you will be added into the database to be included in future CapWhiz alerts.

Tell them its not archery equipment. We have crossguns in PA and you don't want them.

I got the following reply which is positive.

Dear Mr. Milano,

I am writing in response to your recent email in which you express your
opposition to the Senate bill 7005, which would reclassify the crossbow as
archery equipment. Thank you for taking the time to write.

I am aware of the issue and agree with you. Please be aware that I will
oppose this bill if it is brought before the Assembly.

Thank you again for writing. If you have any further questions or concerns,
please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,
Michael A. Montesano
Member of Assembly
15th District

The sad fact is that I think most compound bowhunters want the crossbow in the archery season. I was shocked when a bow shop put a poll on the Long Island Deer Hunting page asking who was in favor of the crossbow in the archery season. Over 80% wanted it in archery. Now it could be that a lot of compound hunters didn't want to take the heat and reply but it was still depressing.

It seems their argument is that we are selfish etc. and that we should all stand together etc. They say it is no more effective than the compound which is a lie. The average compound shooter cannot hit the kill zone on a deer at 60 yards but with the new crossbows the average shooter will be able to hit the kill zone at 60 yards if not 80 yards.

What I also found interesting and hypocritical is that they want the crossbow legal for archery but not the new Crossman bowgun.

It's the reason I don't consider Compound bows archery. If we don't take a hard stand on what classifies as a bow, we will lose. Big Business is running the show and the fact is they can sell more "stuff" to compound and crossbow users than someone using a traditional bow. NY wants more hunters, not for keeping the deer population in check but to gain in fees. I have not seen a single property "managed" by NYS that has been a benefit to the animals, zero.

Guys we fought the crossgun in PA and here it is in the archery season. They want everything made easy to sell licences and that is the bottom line. The archery vendor community isn't any better. They thirst for instantaneous success and the quick sale to them is the bottom line. They don't care one bit about the impact this will have on the archery season or about traditional values. I use to joke about crossguns being fired with a 209 primer and people said it would never happen. Its no longer a joke...closer than you think. Sad but true.

We had the same matter come up here in Missouri... numerous town hall meeting where we spoke our peace, but to no avail... We have crossbows for this fall's archery season. While they want more people hunting (hence the crossbows), they are cutting down our bag limit! [Confused]

Waiting to see how this all pans out...

Good luck to you all up in New York!

Good luck, shoot straight and God Bless,

Rodd
