Farm Bureau/Grange Agree to Round Table on SH

I think the best thing that happened at tonight's meeting was the Farm Bureau and Grange saying they would sit at a round table to reach compromise on the Sunday hunting issue.

Imagine that?

You mean people might just sit down, discuss the future and how SH might be MANAGED?

Yep. Rep. Staback said he has asked them over and over to sit and talk, and the only thing he got out of them before was "What part of NO don't you understand?"; so at least progress is being made.

Yes. There was other progress as well. Commissioner Isabella was there and had a very nice letter he submitted to some audience members as well as the legislature and the press.

In his closing remarks, he says and I quote:

Quote:
To summarize, at least 43 states have some form of Sunday Hunting. The landowner has the final say as to what occurs on their property. Thousands of hunters use state game lands, state forests, and private property they own or lease. I suggest that after all of these hearings, call a meeting with all the stakeholders and forge an agreement that is amicable to all.

Most importantly, eliminate the antiquated blue law prohibiting Sunday Hunting and allow the PA Game Commission the responsibility to manage the seasons and bag limits. The time is right to put Pennsylvania in the 21st century.

Better late than never? LOL

Seems he may have been playing politics at the time with his vote? We will never know, for sure.

Funny, isn't it. I like Greg, but he punted when he knew his wish was gonna pass. Then comes out with a strong statement for SH.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
