Thanks to All That Supported our Booth at the Oswego County Fair

The sportsmen presence in the building included the Federation, Mad River Club promoting their Archery Shoot, the Oswego County Trappers, the Annie Jardin Group, and the National Wild Turkey Federation which also provided the Daisy B B Bun Shooting Booth.  With the exception of the Federation all sold raffle tickets ( the Federation did help a little with the selling of tickets for these groups and the Cross Bow Coalition )

This years upgraded Fish Tank was well received and the ability to disseminate useful information when asked was also appreciated.  The leading questions were where can I find a Hunter Ed Course and what is happening with the Crossbow.

We promoted a get out the vote initiative.

THANKS to Fish Wish Taxidermy as Maggie's art work promoted some interesting conversations

Thanks to Rob and Kathy Worden of Paw Power Pet Supply in Mexico NY for providing the crickets that the the fish feasted on. 

Thanks to Hal Smith and Dave Petrie's Daughter for supplying the Fish.

Still finding that seven our of 10 "sportsmen" do not belong to a sportsmen's club.   


Is now a Legal Hunting implement in New York
The Crossbow can be used in all small game and any big game season that includes firearms. We will also have crossbow use in the last 14 days of the Southern Zone and the last 10 days of the Northern Zone early archery seasons. In addition, the archery set back is changed to 150' for archery and 250' for crossbows. Unfortunately, Suffolk and Westchester counties are once again eliminated from the crossbow inclusion.   

DEC Guidelines for Hunters
Dec Regulation must be adopted before the Crossbow can be used in any season

Again thanks to all that made this major initial step happen!

Those that stand against us will never be able to take the outdoor sports we value so highly away from us.  It will be those among us who do not speak up and defend what we have that give it away first!
