It has recently come to my attention that an article written 3/28/2004 by Joe Ognibene calls out quotes from me. The article is pro crossbow, and anti NYB. my next comments are not about crossbows nor do I wish to debate the issue here. Joe has me quoted as publicly lashing out harsh comments about NYB and their position on bill A09746. I have never spoken to or in any way had any conversation or communication with Joe Ognibene, nor have I ever given Joe Ognibene permission to quote me in any form or fashion on any subject. There has been no phone or verbal conversations, written letters. or direct email to back up his story. Although NYB and NY NWTF has different positions on bill A09746, it would be unbecoming and beneath the NY NWTF and it's directors to issue such negative statements publicly, especially concerning a fellow conservation org or sportsmenís group. . Any formal statements by the NY NWTF State Chapter can be found in the form of press releases at: http://www.turkey-talk.com/nys-nwtf/news.htm Mike Joyner 2nd Vice President New York State Chapter National Wild Turkey Federation 30 Crandall Street Cortland, New York 13045 Tel. 607.753.8420 www.turkey-talk.com [email protected]
