Another good reason to have sunday hunting is our youth. They are at school through the week, practices and activites at night throughout the week. Saturdays often see games for sports, which leaves sunday......oh wait, no sunday hunting..... At best, this would give youth, our future generation of hunters, the ability to get out two days a week. If they play sports, it gives them the ability to get out for one day......on sunday.
I am sick and tired of hearing about tradition, and religion, so lets break them down.
Tradition is great if it is beneficial. Friday night bonding at camp before buck season, weekend trout opener at camp, blood on your face and a pic with your first kill. These are all meaningful. Not hunting on sunday, well, that's just a deterrent to get our youth away from x-boxes and out in the woods.
Religion is always a sticky topic. I will speak from a general Christian belief. Sundays are for church, for family, and for hobbies and leisure, and also a day of rest from work. Lets say that half of the hunters attend church regularly with their kids, that still leaves from noon on for time in the field with those same kids. Time bonding over a great leisure activity. For the other half that doesn't go to church, it gives them a whole day.
I will also address the landowner aspect. Just because a law says its legal doesn't mean a landowner will allow it. They have the right to say you will not hunt my ground on sunday. So for all you landowners, there's your answer!
