Hunters in Pennsylvania might finally get to pursue their passion on Sunday, if a proposal to lift the Keystone State’s longstanding (and archaic, many argue) ban on Sunday hunting.
From this story in the Somerset County (PA) Daily American:
Bambi may have another day to worry about hunters. Hunting Pennsylvania’s whitetail deer on Sundays is off limits, but those restrictions could end if a proposed change to the established hunting season is accepted by the state legislature. The House Game and Fisheries Committee held the first of three public hearings designed to learn the pros and cons of an expansion to Sunday hunting at Seven Springs Resort on Thursday. Hunters can legally kill foxes, coyotes and crows on Sundays.
_Minority Chairman Edward G. Staback, D-Lackawanna/Wayne, said the issue of expanding Sunday hunting has, “always been a lively debate.” That claim was confirmed Thursday as representatives from the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau, Humane Society of the United States, National Shooting Sports Foundation, National Rifle Association, U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance and Pennsylvania Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs were invited to testify.
What say you, FN readers? Should Sunday hunting bans be…banned?
