Governor Cuomo Vetoes Restrictive Hunting Bill, Thank You SCI New York



New York SCI Members,

Yesterday, December 17, 2012, Governor Cuomo vetoed Assembly Bill 10583A. While this bill was primarily concerned with regulations surrounding crossbow use, this legislation would have discontinued the youth firearms deer hunt for the 2013 season. The youth hunt was held for the first time this year on Columbus Day weekend, and had close to 700 participants.

As a result of your actions, the youth of New York will be able to don their camoflage once again, and spend some quality family time afield in 2013. Thank you to all the SCI members who called Governor Cuomo asking him to veto the bill, and thank you for protecting the freedom to hunt for the youth of New York. Please be sure to share the good news with your friends in the hunting community, and show them the impact SCI has on shaping the public policy discussion surrounding hunting rights.


First For Hunters,
