Adding Sunday Hunting vs. Other Outdoor Sports

I want to get opinions / thoughts on these numbers??

If the PGC would go "ALL IN" for all seasons with Sunday Hunting, what would it look like?

"If" we had SH in 2011... It would have added 20 more days of Hunting - Additonal Days would break down like this:
Sept - 4 Sundays
Oct - 5 Sundays
Nov - 4 Sundays
Dec - 2 Sundays (This could be 1 Sunday - Depending if the cloesd the season on a Saturday or Sunday)
Jan - 5 Sundays (This could be 4 Sundays - Depending if the cloesd the season on a Saturday or Sunday)

This equals 137 days for continous hunting in Pennsylvania... "IF" SH was implemented for the 2011 season.

Keep in mind:
1. Hunting License pay for the State Game Lands purchases and up keep.

2. State Game Lands "DO NOT" Limit access to other outdoor activities. i.e. - Horse Back Rider, Hikers, Leef Peepers

Other outdoor activites using Game Lands:

Horse Back Riding - 258 days

Hikers - 258 days

Leef Peepers - seasonal - Fall / 45 days.

Mountain Bikers - 258 days

These sports are getting a voice with out even spending a dime on Game Lands!

My questions:

How is it fair that these sports are getting a say in what happens to lands that they do not pay for?

How much trespassing goes on by the other sports compared to hunting? There are A LOT more opportunites for other sports to trespass.

Just a couple of thoughts to be debated while watching the snow fall...

AS long as they are closed to us they should be closed to all

Why would you accept anything less if the legislature went through the exercise of changing the law?

If it gets passed... It will be introduced slowly, over a long period of time. Example: Ohio

But eventually it would get that way...

I am glad they don't introduce other law changes slowly.

Seriously?

My grandfather ran moonshine during the prohibition.

Lots of changes since.

Bars were closed on Sundays; except some clubs. Then came restaurants with food, but the alcohol had to be purchased at the liquor store.

The Liquor Act of 1951 is the reason that pizza joints and delis can sell six-packs—it allowed hotels, restaurants, and clubs with enough seating to apply for a license for off-premise malt beverage sales.


Beer sales on Sunday from distributors in 2005.

Wine sales in Kiosks in grocery stores; some grocery stores sell beer.

Yep. They ripped those band-aids right off.
