Pennsylvania: Senate Committee Passes Sunday Hunting Ban Repeal

Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- Yesterday, the Senate Game and Fisheries Committee passed pro-hunting legislation, Senate Bill 147, by an 8 to 3 vote. SB 147 now heads to the Senate floor for further consideration. Please contact your state Senator and strongly urge them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 147 when it comes up for a vote.

Take Action Button

Senate Bill 147, sponsored by Senator Daniel Laughlin, would expand hunting opportunities for Pennsylvania hunters by eliminating the prohibition against hunting on Sundays.

Prohibitions on Sunday hunting are old blue laws left on the books in just a few states. They deny hunters access one day per week despite the fact that each year, hunters pump millions of dollars into habitat restoration and conservation through Pittman-Robertson funds.

Many hunters are prevented from introducing their children or friends to hunting because they are competing against organized sports and other activities on Saturday, which is currently their only opportunity to hunt outside of the work or school week. Countless hunters stop hunting because of the lack of opportunity, both in time and accessible land. The addition of an extra day in the field, especially on the weekend, increases the opportunity to enjoy our hunting heritage. Allowing hunting on Sundays will invigorate essential hunter recruitment and retention efforts.

Again, please contact your state Senator and urge them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 147.

i live in PA and i used to hunt,not anymore but i have no problem with people who hunt but i’m against sunday hunting. sunday gives people a chance to go in the woods with their families and not have to worry about getting shot.

Rock; Right on lived in Pa for 60 years and had no problem with no hunting on Sundays, and did enjoy walking or hiking those days, also with the caliper of hunters I see today and a main reason I don’t hunt anymore, is shoot first then see what they shot just doesn’t make it what it used to be FUN! Now if passed I will not be taking the chance of being shot on a Sunday walk or hike!

I actually am for the no hunting Sundays. It’s the only day I can take a walk or take my kids/wife in the woods with me to target shoot or just enjoy the day walking in the woods. I AM a hunter, but still like the one day a week left free of hunting. Gives the animals a break too.

Good because nowhere in the bible does it state thall shall not hunt on Sunday. That’s just some more made up stuff from those who try and control lives.

Exactly right. Besides, Sunday IS NOT, was not and NEVER will be the Sabbath, anyway. Read up. There will be a test. The TRUTH sets you free, not fables and false doctrines.
