gov wolf signed a bill for sunday hunting. Looks like only 3 days? I guess game commission has to approve yet?

We have almost 3 months to kill a dumb deer now, do you think 3 more days will help?

Property owners against it will more than offset the gains of a couple days, imo.

This whole thing stinks. I would have rather this bill got killed once the power drunk farm bearou stepped in front of it like they always do. The people of PA should be able to do what they choose on Sunday including hunting. And it should be under the control of the game commission not career politicians. That said, 3 is better than zero. But im afraid that now this is going to pass it will mean there wont be any willingness to fight for full Sunday inclusion for a long time.

I don't need the extra days for myself, but my young son will certainly benefit from the extra day.

I think we should be able to hunt sundays. I would have 3 months to shoot a deer if I didn't work. Just satudrays isn't much, throw in a couple rainy or windy days, plus family events.

No hunting on sundays is about the dumbest thing I have ever heard of. Good thing Michigan got rid of that garbage before my time.

Yeah it will be next year . 2 days are alotted for deer. One gun one archery but pgc has to select the exact days. One is up for grabs. I personally think it will be for spring gobbler. That one could potentially be in this license year. I hope so bc we have a late gobbler opener and could use another prime dau before the skeeters get bad.

Y'all starting the gun season this coming Saturday, then off Sunday, then on again Monday is stupid. It makes no sense to me at all. Open it up for all game for Sunday hunting. Those that don't wish to partake and go to church, is ok, let everyone else go.

That's what I thought years ago in Ohio. Now, I have to admit there is something special, romantic, needed about not hunting one day a week. IDK.....


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

Didnít much matter to me in N.C. when we got Sunday hunting, but then I moved to the mountains and my club is 330 miles to the East. When I carry my 12 year old grandson, we hunt Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning,

School age kids and working parents benefit the most. We need the kids to keep our sport alive.

No kidding Catch. It will be like having 2 opening days of buck this year though. Already got a buck so ill just be an observer/bear hunter. Truthfully the whole thing is all about some folks wanting their choice and a bunch of others who want control over everyone and think theu know better what folks do with their time. Personally i just want to be able to decide which weekend day i hunt. Base that on weather and things i have going on. Half the time the better day/conditions will be on Sunday.

It is about time ! Those old blue laws are way outdated and this "day of rest for the deer" is a crock.

I feel ya Fisher Man. I do. When I was young all I wanted was to be in the woods but we couldn't on Sunday, no Sunday hunting. I was so happy when Ohio finally gave in to allow it. Until I got older and realized that when I was out there in the woods on Sunday, I was missing something. Mama would always make this huge breakfast, huge. I was the youngest, all the married off ones would come home, me and the old man would watch Gunsmoke on the TV. The older kids would come and glean the leftovers from the stove and Mama would start lunch, iced tea, coffee, pop and sandwiches with chips and french onion dip. All though anything Mama made was so good, out of this world, it wasn't just that. It was about what happened when we were all there together. I still feel that Sunday hunting should be allowed because I am a lover of freedom. However, I won't hold a State at fault for not allowing Sunday hunting, for either religious or other reasons. Sometimes a gain results in losses. My best.....

I hope they kept the written permission and stiffening of the trespass laws in.

Who do you guys think owns most of the land in pa, if it ain't farmers.

Written permission will kill trapping. 90% of my farmers are not going to sign a piece of paper. I understand people wanting to limit trespassing, but farmers who are already struggling for livelihood are not about to sign away any more rights. Just my two cents
