    No hunting on Sunday????

    I have seen a few articles recently about some eastern states not allowing hunting on Sunday. They seem to be old laws that some are trying to change. Im sure there were reasons behind these laws when they were made but why would hunting not be allowed on Sundays? Alot of residents hunt mostly on weekends and not being able to hunt on Sunday could take away 1/2 of their hunting opportunity. It just doesnt make any sense to me and I had never herd of anything like this before. Does anyone know more about this?

The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."

    It looks like Pennsylvannia recently began allowing hunting on Sundays except for woodchucks. I might not be reading that right.

    Virginia is pretty clearly against hunting on Sundays. As for why, I don't really have a good idea. I saw something on the Pennsylvannia web-site about farmers needing a day of rest. I guess with most of the land and hunting opportunities on private land, the farmers needed a break. I am purely guessing. Religious day of rest could be a big part of it, too. My uncle is in western Maryland and he hunts PA also. I might have to ask him about it.

    Here is an older article about it. http://www.fieldandstream.com/blogs/...ay-hunting-ban

    That would just make it so the farmer had to work on Sunday so he could hunt on Monday. lol. I was wondering if it was religious too or if religious people didnt want church service interrupted by gun fire! The article in Petersens Hunting says they can hunt on private land in Virginia on sunday now.

    PA must want to protect Punxsutawney Phil on Sunday still, oh wait that's a groundhog not a wood chuck. I need to go to bed before I get really weird. I am easily distracted tonight and no I did not know how to spell Phil's town.

    Just some old laws still on the books because "that's the way we always did it". I bet their elected officials still wear powdered wigs as well. Pretty damned stupid in this day and age. Some folks are just against change of any kind.

    I would not live in a state that didn't allow hunting on Sunday. That's just ridiculous and there's absolutely no good reason for it!

    the funny part is.... it is a religious thing that makes the laws that way in those states. but instead of going hunting on sundays alot of those guys are either "poaching" or doing some other thing im sure wouldnt be appropriate sunday behavior. id like to hearsomeone chime in from one of these states to give us an iside view.
