OBH Rejects Crossbow Proposal
The Oregon Bow Hunters (OBH) soundly rejected a proposal that would have allowed for consideration of an alternative for legalization of crossbow use by severely disabled hunters outside of archery season at their recent Convention in Bend. As a result of the nearly unanimous vote at the OBH Field Governors' meeting, the standing position of OBH opposing crossbow use in archery season remains in effect.
Twice in recent years – 2010 and 2013/14 – the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission has considered allowing severely disabled individuals to use crossbows in Oregon’s archery seasons. In both instances, heavy pressure from OBH, other hunting organizations and individual bow hunters resulted in the considerations being tabled by the Commission.
It is unlikely that the past inactions by the Commission are the end of the story with respect to crossbows in Oregon! As the “last state standing” without crossbows allowed for hunting in one season or another, Oregon is sure to garner the full attention of the crossbow industry and other crossbow advocates. Left to their own devices and without any established alternative, the crossbow industry and other crossbow advocates will always push to allow crossbow use in archery season!!
OBH remains committed to fighting the good fight to keep crossbows out of Oregon's archery seasons even without the ability to relieve the continuing pressure by considering other alternatives!
