ADVOCACY IN ACTION

 

 



A new bill is moving swiftly through the Oklahoma legislature that would allow arrow-shooting airguns to be used during archery season. Arrow-shooting airguns lack the basic components of standard archery equipment, including limbs and a string system, and should therefore not be authorized for use during archery-only hunting seasons. Join us by voting “NO” to House Bill 2355.

The bill’s passage would not only increase public acceptance of hunting these species, but it neutralizes key arguments often used as reasoning to further limit or eliminate the ability of hunters to pursue them.
