    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?

    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.

    I didn't think some of these for Wyoming were that bad. I would not want to skydive drunk. Someone probably died doing it, so now there is a law.

    If I was going to skydive, I would have to be drunk!

    "You may not make love in a freezer." Did someone get frostbite? LOL!

    I notice most of them involve being drunk. Sounds like discrimination to me

    lol! What happens in the freezer stays in the freezer unless you have to go to the hospital, then there is a law. I think that getting drunk and doing something crazy is the state pastime. Its hard to discriminate when the lawmakers are right in the mix with you.
