I wrote a "nice" letter to como's office the other day stating that 9 of my mutual hunting buds and myself no longer hold hunting/fishing license's in NY any more as well as we have all pulled out our campers from campgrounds we have been in for years as a group. These campers were our home base for hunting, fishing, 4-wheeler, and snowmobile trips and just plain family vacations in North Central NY for years. So in total with all the kids and families, campers, and licisenses for boats, wheelers, snowmobiles ect, that totals over 30 people not spending a dime there anymore,,
there,, TAKE THAT!!!! As of this last week end we have all now just finished up moving,,, ALL,, the campers back into VT or into our back yards for now. Us ++++ Them (NY) ,,,= 0 $$$$$,,, touche !!!!
Hit them where it hurts I say, it ain't just companies moving out,,,, it's sportsman too!
TAKE THAT,,,, New York!!! And that's all from one small community of <3000 people,,, lots of other sportsman are doing the same thing around here and writing letters to convey that to the state of ny too.
Myself, I'd been contemplating the purchase of a 125 acre piece of land with a camp on it and was at the point of doing the closing with-in the next 3 weeks, along with my bud purchasing the adjoining 250 acres for our family adventures. Not now! Both,, "SALES CANCELED".
We both called the realtor the same day in a conference call, this last Monday,, and canceled the sale's on both pieces. I thought the poor realtor was going to blow when we told him why we'd both backed out of the sale.
He told us that,, that was about the 6th sale he'd lost in the last 2 months specifically because of the new gun laws in NY.
I relayed all this info to como's office, as well as did the other families involved. The realtor,, he was the most pissed of the bunch, loosing >400K worth of sales ,,, really pissed him off. He's a hunter too, and understood why.
He stated,, "in no uncertain terms" he'd be contacting the governors office too. We'll see If I or anybody else involved gets any responses, but we SURE DID put our foot down and hit them in the pocket book on that one,,, fug- um!!!!
We'll take the 400K we were going to spend for the land, plus what we spend as a group there each year for vacations,,,, somewhere else,,,,,,,,, Bye Bye ,,NEW YORK !!!!!!! See ya!
How Ya Like Them "BIG",, Apples ?????
Ya love me now, NY ???? FUG YA!!!!!
