Gone but not forgotten

Found this in a search on the history of Sunday Hunting.

If Sunday hunting was not already illegal, who among us would not laugh at making it so?

That 50% less opportunity seems about right to me and likely many if not most of our fellow hunters who want to introduce the next generation to hunting and need to travel a bit to get out of the suburbs.

Oldie but Goodie

Did you follow the link that showed a DCNR study about outdoor travelers showing only 7% of all the hikers, horseback riders, campers, leaf watchers, picnickers, hunters, etc. out of all they surveyed were even out and about in Nov. and Dec. combined.

Somewhat difficult for me to believe those percentages have changed much and doesn't lend much credibility to those that preach Sunday Hunting here in PA will have all sorts of dire consequences to other outdoor activities but somehow can't be documented anyplace else where Sunday Hunting is legal.

There was no problem getting next generation hunting for decades with 6 days a week hunting.

Indeed. It would seem this law has been obsolete for quite a while.

And yet we still have hunters that state all kinds of concerns about interfering with non hunters activities on Sundays. Its a bogus position.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Maybe, but it certainly seems to have staying power for some odd reason.

Listen, or your tongue will make you deaf.

Sure does. Almost makes a person wonder if the PGC is really in favor of Sunday closing laws as they appear to be the only law enforcement entity still enforcing them.
