Non-Hunter Supports Sunday Hunting

Sunday hunting debate is hard to understand

Published: Monday, September 26, 2011, 12:44 AM

By Letters to the Editor

I do not understand why there is such a debate about hunting deer on Sundays.

Every argument that is against hunting on Sundays appears to be based mainly on religious reasons.

For instance, Sunday is a day of rest, Sunday is for prayer, or Sunday is God's day.

I am not a hunter, but it seems to me that shooting a deer on Sunday is no different than shooting one on Wednesday.

It certainly doesn't matter to the deer.

What does religion have to do with wildlife management anyway?

Hunting on Sunday will have no impact on the number of deer that are culled because the same number of hunting licenses will be issued. Also, the Game Commission is a state agency.

Therefore, the premise of separation of church and state must be respected. Any laws that prohibit activities such as hunting because of religious observances could be challenged as unconstitutional.

Most of these laws or traditions have been abolished without any impact to our moral or religious beliefs.

There is no practical reason why a deer can be shot from Monday through Saturday but not on a Sunday. It comes down to choice.

Let individuals decide if they want to hunt on Sunday or take a day of rest.

Sunday should be just another day of the week. Maybe in the near future I'll be able to buy a car on Sunday, too.

Re: Non-Hunter Supports Sunday Hunting

It's not the act of shooting a deer on Sunday that I oppose. It's the one day out of the week that I can take my "non-hunting" family into the woodlands to enjoy the outdoors without having to worry about messing up someone's hunt.

Does anyone on here really believe this???? Moral and religious beliefs are the same now, as the time when all the blue laws were in place??

As I have said before, seperation of church and state has become what a few think it should be. If we were somehow able to ask our founding fathers to clarify what they meant by putting it in the constitution. I tend to believe it is very different than what most "modern" folks have been led to believe, by politically correct idiots. Just my opinion.

Same agenda here by the vocal minority. Just reaching deeper into the bottom of the barrel...and that's sad.

Re: Non-Hunter Supports Sunday Hunting

Maub,

I think most polling of hunters have somwhere above 60% in favor of Sunday hunting. I would call that a majority.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!
