FOR THOSE WHO EXCAL CB HUNT IN T.P.R. OF NEW YORK

Post by amythntr »

.....having purchased a nice parcel of land in T.P.R. of NY my intent is to not only rifle hunt but to also CB hunt on the property....NYS has an archaic law of a 200lb draw weight maximum.....obviously, substantially all Excalibur CB's are well above this maximum. I know I could get a wide body older model....I'm 5x5 and really do not want a 5x5 crossbow no matter how great they are.

.....I do not want to put anyone on the spot wit a response, so you can respond in a PM if need be.....

.....the question is, "How do you handle this archaic law?" "Do you just ignore it?" "What CB do you actually use in NYS?"

.....Again, if you want, just PM me with your response and I will also share what I have been told!

I have an acquaintance that lives upstate NY and illegally hunts with a Micro 330. He does visit here on occasion, but the rules are what you read. They are firmly based on compound crossbows. He got nowhere in his attempts to logic to the ridiculous rules. Be careful Anthony and make some friends up there. Call their DNR as well to see if there might be amendments or another way to measure output that might satisfy the rule.

Good luck,
Dan

Little "manco" is not for sale!
Nothing wrong with hunting with a vixen either.
Actually l like the law it should be like 400fps instead of draw weight to get ride of the future space bows and keep archery a short distance challenge .....my useless 2cent opinion.

Anthony, you need an Offspring!😎 Or a sticker off of a Vixen to put on your bow of choice.

Totally Ridiculous. I can understand the minimum, but the maximum punishes recurve users. Until you get it sorted out, Paul's idea sounds great. :thumbup: I bet Joe has a drawer full of Vixen Badges. :lol: :lol: :lol: I would loan you my Vortex Anthony, no questions. :thumbup:

Anthony, put a set of matrix limbs on your A360 and you'll have about the equivalent of a Matrix Cub.

Or.... Original Grizzly, GRZ2, and Matrix Sapphire were all 200 lb draw weight, correct?

Sell the land and move to Ohio.......but seriously in New York by reading the law a 17 “ minimum limb width and the 200 lbs maximum I don’t think there are a lot of choices out there even from other companies. I don’t think Tenpoint here in Ohio even makes one over 15” wide anymore.
I’d get some of these companies involved too maybe they could get some amendments filed and change the width and weight requirements.

"Them little excalibur ovals on the stock are kinda interchangeable from one another " .....just saying that a stock could accidentally get mixed up with a faster bow.!

Anthony I would presume that you're not a criminal. It's not worth the risk of getting charged with a felony. That said, laws are made to be changed, but should not broken. Until then, take the high road, even if you have to use a "lowly 200lb Exocet".

For the record, I've taken my largest white-tail to date using a 165lb Exocet. Actually, I've harvested more deer with my Exo-series CBs then my Matrix's and Micros combined. They are not as cumbersome as you would think, and personally I've gotten better accuracy using them.
Not to brag, but I've decapitated a grouse at 33 yards, and gave a "dirt nap" to a squirrel at approx. 52 yards with my old Exomag.

Unlike you did when I recommended the AXE 340, please trust me. I am not leading you astray, and I don't want to have to tell you "I told you so" once again.
Just some food for thought, before breaking the law.

One time last year l was tracking swamp buck that l shot the nite before and a conservation officer stopped
to check me... basically looked at my vixen as an arcaic piece of equipment because it didn't have wheels he ended up helping me track and we found the giant beast that ended his opinions of the ancient recurve crossbow.
Point of story is hunting on my own land l would forgeddabout it in short order.. they are not gonna pull a spec. Sheet from their vehicle about your crossbow choice if people can mess up statues in NY and burn 🔥 stuff down to the ground l really doubt they care about a nice Italian fellow out enjoying the woods.Anthony just don't let them put you in a covid riddled nursing home .
