Will Sunday hunting generate $800M

Ok so there has been a lot of debate over Sunday hunting and additional revenue. A formal financial review has been conducted, now its time for oppinions from the field. This survey will help me understand what we at HPA feel will happen to state revenue due to the addition of Sunday hunting.

There have been a number of posts about why people do not want Sunday hunting so please keep on the topic of added revenue.

Re: Will Sunday hunting generate $800M

no doubt I will spend a LOT less. Instead of my normal heart healthy sundays consisting of beer/wings/burgers at the local pub and then sitting down in front of sunday ticket all day, i'll be out patrolling my land on foot for free. Money saved according to my estimates would be $300 for sunday ticket, 12 pub visits totaling approx $540 and close to $100 in gas at today's price. This is if sundays are allowed from Oct through December in all seasons.
More money spent? Not even close in my case, heck I will save $940 per year, that's enough to go hunt out of state each year, yeah! I knew I had to find my silver lining somewhere if this goes through, I think I just did!

Re: Will Sunday hunting generate $800M

I picked I will spend the same ammount but on different things. Typically on Sundays my wife and I get a Sunday paper, coffe, and breakfast at Sheetz. If I were to hunt on Sunday I know my wife would not go to Sheetz on her own to buy the paper and her breakfast. So, we will probably end up ordering pizza on Sunday nights or pocket the money. Typically the Sheetz run in the morning costs around $15 and a pizza night runs the same. Spending the same ammount but to different a business

I doubt I will be spending any more money on hunting supplies. I may spend a little more money on gas (which might be a wash if we dont buy the pizza) and during a typical week of packing lunches for work I always have left over lunch meat that I will use for hunting now. If Sunday hunting is allowed (and if I hunt on Sundays) I do not forsee myself adding much if any toward the added revenue but redistributing where the money is going.

Not to be over critical, but if you are not eating the bad foods you will live longer and in the long run spend more money for those extra days you are alive

And based off of your calculations, you will be speding more money out of state!!! I wonder if more people will fall in the same line and pump more money out of state?

About half as much--I'll be in the woods standing beside a tree, not standing beside the wife at the casino.

Re: Will Sunday hunting generate $800M

171, very good point, but I figure if I make it to 50, i'll just throw in the towel anyway

and yes, you are correct. My answer was solely for the PA economy. Another state which I haven't decided yet, will reap the rewards as I have standing offers in 3 others, just never wanted to put out the cash to go.

Re: Will Sunday hunting generate $800M

I voted the same amount.The reason why,because if Sunday hunting is allowed you still have the same expenses as any other day you go.Yeah you might get more revenue from folks out of state coming here to hunt from the purchase of hunting license and the ability to hunt on Sunday,hotels and motels will see some gains as well as resturants[sp] and diners and maybe some of the sporting goods shops that are open during that time.But for the Pa. resident i really see no more spending then normal.

Re: Will Sunday hunting generate $800M

My spending will increase proportionally to the amount I spend per day now because I will be hopefully spending it on a few extra days.

In reality, Sunday hunting will only get 2 or 3 "extra" days of hunting out of me during the archery season because in all likelihood, since I have a family, I'll have to pick and choose to hunt either Saturday or Sunday. But, when we have strings of bad weather and Saturdays are a wash, my "hunting" is non-existent on a weekend currently. With Sundays thrown in, family stuff can be planned for the bad weather Saturdays and I can be out in a tree on a Sunday if the weather is better. I usually have all my gear purchased well before the season but I can see myself spending a little more on scent free spray, no scent detergent, deer scents, etc. because I'll be going through them a little more if I am out hunting more.

Of course, fuel and associated vehicle expenses will increase some.

Re: Will Sunday hunting generate $800M

I would think in terms of larger expenditures, like buying a hunting camp in PA instead of western NY. I believe it would increase the demand for hunting camps, since hunters could get more use out of them.

Re: Will Sunday hunting generate $800M

I am shocked that right at this point in time each answer has 10 votes each!

There has been a few remarks that make me think and show to an extent I had my blinders on when thinking of terms or places the "revenue" will come from
