And why do the farmers have so much say?

This past weekend while at camp, the produce I bought at the local market was coming from out of state (sunday hunting allowed states) or out of country. I realize Pennsylvania produces a ton of feed grade corn and grains, but they do not, or should not have the leverage that they think they do. Im set to boycott Pennsylvania Farmers who do not support Sunday hunting and would like to compile a lists of those who openly oppose. I will however continue to support my many friends who farm and support sunday hunting because they realize it will not have an effect on them farming. First the religious complained of a "day of rest", the farmers "trespassing and our animals are getting shot" the hikers, horseback riders "we dont want to get shot". PLLLLLLLLLLLEASE! Pennsylvania isnt even relevant when compared to other farming states in the U.S. Its also funny how they all claim to allow people to hunt on their land, but hear so many stories of people being turned away. You guys are a joke!

You can put me on your list.

I don't support Sunday hunting in PA.

Not sure if its relevant to your little rant, but farming is not my sole source of income, I spend some time making steel smaller too.

Re: And why do the farmers have so much say?

Soooo...you want to boycott those who have the ground that you want to hunt on Sundays....that's good thinkin'....just think how crowded the SGL will be if ALL of the farmers take their land away.....I mean, it will be so crowded that you won't be able to move, but at least you can go and stand in that one spot one more day of the week.

I don't have any land, but put me on your list...I think that I would want to be boycotted by people with that line of thought....

I prefer my kid hunt and fish rather than steal and deal,

Sunday hunting is a dead issue..Farmers own most of the private land in PA and have a large pool in the legislature..Dont waste your time...Instead of going to the beach for a 2 week vacation take off some time to hunt like everyone else does and stop crying about it..If your job does not allow you time to hunt then QUIT and find one that does like alot of others do...It comes down to what is more important your job or a couple days to hunt..

add me and my entire family of farmers to that list. Our 300 acres can quickly be pulled from the cooperative programs if this is how the hunters feel. We can take care of our own deer problems during the season.

Re: And why do the farmers have so much say?

Great idea, boycott local farmers. See where that geys everybody. I for one dont care if we get SH or not. But when you wanna get personnal about boycotting something that puts food on my table and pays my bills, I will speak up. I gave up 3/4 of my hunting season to farm. Im not crying about SH. I find a few days to get out, and make them count. Otherwise im sittin in a tractor night and day making sure people are fed.

Really, did you think your post was a good idea? Yeah, Shoot off a few toes to hunt on Sunday.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
