An update: SB 352 is still in State house, Deceptively as a disabilities bill. Alive and well and will be voted on in the Senate as soon as Monday. Passing will place it on the governors desk. Thanks to you calls/emails the house bill 2355 has been sent back to the house, it is a wounded bill but not dead. Action ?? Bowhunters oppose Senate bill 352/ HB2355 The bills house author Kevin Wallace has not been responsive. Our supporters on the bill are John Talley and John Waldron: please contact them both as well as Kevin Wallace: John Talley 405-557-7304 [email protected] John Waldron 405-557-7410 [email protected] Kevin Wallace 405-557-7368 [email protected] Tell them Bowhunters oppose SB 352. The bill is deceptively labeled as a disabled bill but allows both disabled and able-bodied use of air guns during full deer archery season. 1:We oppose its use for both antlered and antlerless harvest during archery season. 2:We also oppose the classification of the "airbow" as it stands and the $20 stamp to purchase for this equipment. We see this as a foot in the door for further inclusion. 3: Disabled and able persons are already allowed use of crossbows and electric powered cocking systems in archery season. Negating the need for more technology. 4:The "airbow" should be classified as an air gun. The "airbow" is already listed as legal means of take for deer rifle season.

House wildlife committee members are here: https://www.okhouse.gov/committees/house/wild Bill language: https://fastdemocracy.com/bill-search/ok/2023-2024/bills/OKB00025836/

" C. 1. A permanently physically disabled person may use an air bow as a legal hunting method during any open season. 2. A person using an air bow as a legal hunting method during the archery deer season shall be limited to antlerless deer only.

I'll send another round of emails. Not interested in anyone being able to use one but if they just gotta then keep it in rifle season.

I love the negating for more technology. Like no more technology after the range finders and rectifiers and let-off with the perfect carbon arrows that came out of my doinker stabilizers thats attached to me e-bike i rode in on MY road at MY food plot bait station i scouted with my drone. Prayers sent

Prayers sent for you as well, Machino. When you hunt with a selfbow with broadheads you knapped yourself, and travel to your hunting spots pulling all your gear on a travois, wearing deerskin clothes your woman made for you, check back in with us, ok?

Until then, meh...

Machino, if your all for the swift advancement in hunting technology just head over to Hunt Talk with all the 700 yard shot guys and ditch the BOWSITE.

A lot of truth to what Machino said! If you don’t do it like me then it’s no good! Run for the hills the sky is falling again!

Weather is decimating the herds in parts of the west but because we as humans can not control that we have learned to accept.
