In September, the New York Bowhunters Inc and the New York State Muzzleloaders Association forwarded a signed compromised agreement to DEC Commissioner Grannis that would provide archers with an additional 15 days afield, and give muzzleloaders a five day early “primitive” muzzleloading season. And they did this without once mentioning crossbows. Thank heavens the inmates are not yet guarding the asylum, and saner minds prevail.

BPB reply:
Dick, Spot on as usual. We never did mention the illegal crossbow. Nor was their any mention of Dove hunting or blaze orange in the proposal.But what I continue to notice is a few outdoors writers refusal to promote tools for the handicap that are in production today. It is a very sad reading how a crippled Vet has to wait for a crossbow to become a legal hunting weapon when a draw-loc or line-lock is at the ready.

Oh crap I forgot about the Trappers Cable Restraint bill~& I also did it with out calling a muzzleloader a firearm in the new definition of a "primitive weapon".
