HB 904 PA Sunday Hunting Law

Fellow Pa Hunters attached is a link to submit your opinion about Sunday hunting in Pa. Please read the Newletter link first. Currently the General Assembly governs Sunday hunting in Pa. House Bill 904 would put the deciding factor back in the hands of the Pennsylvania Game Commission. We Pennsylvania hunters have been anxiously waiting for the time in the field that we deserve and have been missing out on for years. It's time to speak up.

Thank you

Thanks!
I submitted my reply endorsing the PGC as the sole decion maker for sunday hunting. Hopefuly one day the common man can enjoy his weekend in the woods hunting on both his days off.

Re: HB 904 PA Sunday Hunting Law

question #1 says : Should the Game Commission become the decision makers on the need to hunt any specific species on a Sunday? There is not a NEED ; it's just another day and I should be able to hunt anything I want ; like 35 other states that have sunday hunting for all game.

Re: HB 904 PA Sunday Hunting Law

HB 904 was a previous bill submitted by Rep. Staback on the issue of having additional Sunday hunting in PA.

The <u>current</u> bill, which proposes transfering regulatory authority for SH, from the Legislature to the PGC, is HB 1760 and is being widely discussed here.

That bill is jointly sponsored by both the majority and minority chairmen of the House Game and Fisheries Committee: John Evans and Ed Staback.

It basically repeals the section of Title 34 prohibiting Sunday hunting (some SH exceptions are already in the Title, such as crows, 'yotes and foxes) and gives that decision on Sundays, for seasons, species, etc, to PGC.

Re: HB 904 PA Sunday Hunting Law

Moot point.

The OP's question was about a bill from a <u>previous</u> legislative session, that no longer exists and has been "superceded" by the current bill to transfer SH regulatory authority to PGC.
