    A lot of the no Sunday stuff goes back a long way. When I was in Texas in 1964/65 in the service, they were called "blue" laws. No liquor on Sunday, most stores closed till at least noon, etc. I think the no hunting was part of this originally. I think there are a few states (and especially counties) that have some of these laws still on the books.

    Growing up they were BLUE LAWS.
    At least that was the laws for alcohol.

    I remember my father having to drive to the next county to get beer.
    Our county was dry. Even as late as the early 80s when I departed for the SVC you still could't by alcohol on Sunday (Midnight SAT).
    Hunting regs took the same approach, as a kid we couldn't hunt Sunday. Not sure what year that changed it might even by county still today.

    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!

    Is that common in Idaho? I never herd that around here but never made a Idaho beer run on sunday morning either. Might have to try it in the morning. LOL. The liqueur store dont open till 11 am which is close enough to a blue law if you ask me!

    "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.

    There should be a law against expecting drunk people to remember all these laws
