NSSF Submits Sunday Hunting LTE in PA

The following Letter to the Editor was sent to the Express-Times (Lehigh Valley Live) concerning Sunday hunting in Pennsylvania.

Lehighvalleylive.com
30 N. Fourth St.
P.O. Box 391
Easton, PA 18044-0391

To the Editor:

I was disappointed to see that the Express-Times opposes Sunday hunting in the Keystone State (“Pennsylvania should preserve Sunday hunting ban,” August 21, 2011). This is especially troubling when one considers that most hunting in Pennsylvania occurs only from late September into early December, therefore affecting very few Sundays. In fact, depending on the game being hunted, hunting season could affect only one month of Sundays.

Families spending quality time together in the field is an American tradition that is as valid today as it was generations ago. Hunting, fishing and other forms of outdoor recreation can provide proven physical, psychological and educational benefits for our nation’s young people – given the time to participate.

An economic impact report released by a coalition of America’s leading conservation, sportsmen’s and hunting organizations including the National Shooting Sports Foundation has found that removal of Sunday hunting restrictions would result in an estimated 8,190 new Pennsylvania jobs. The report also notes that these jobs would pay more than $245 million in wages and contribute approximately $765 million in additional economic activity to the state.

Given the economic impact associated with Sunday hunting, I wonder how the local businesses in Northhampton County, many of whom derive income from hunting and advertise in the Express-Times, feel about the paper’s position. Perhaps future ad revenue will be a barometer? Of course, the ultimate measure will not be seen in dollars and cents, but in how many of today’s young people become tomorrow’s hunter-conservationists.

Sincerely,

Christopher Dolnack
Senior Vice President & Chief Marketing Officer
National Shooting Sports Foundation, Inc.

One thing I notice in most of these types of letters is, they always emphasis the almighty dollar. When, and I understand how hard it can be in this day and age, do we stop selling out our traditions? Our uniqueness? The frequency in which we point to profitability is sickening.

Re: National Shooting Sports Foundations turn, SH

His opinion won't mean diddly in this papers subscription area. Be a pretty good bet the newspaper would lose money from advertizers if they came out in support of Sunday hunting. Gaining hunting access in WMU5C can be a challenge...not impossible but a challenge. And it got significantly tougher with hunting incidents over the last 10 years or so.

One thing I always notice is the anti SH gang is soooo concerned about seeing deer. Yet they don't think they should move off the "ole stump". Crazy

Yup. I never said we didnt. I also never said we dont have any deer. You said they should move off the ole stump, as if to say we dont have enough deer in certain areas and thus those hunters should move their hunting locations. I simply went with your post.
