U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- On January 21st, the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission (NCWRC) is holding an online public hearing for the proposed 2021-2022 hunting, fishing, and trapping regulations. It is critical that sportsmen and women make their voices heard in the crafting of these regulations.

Of particular interest are regulations governing Sunday hunting on public game lands. Despite the North Carolina General Assembly enacting a law to legalize Sunday hunting on public lands in 2017, the WRC has yet to propose rules opening public lands to hunting on Sunday. Four hunting seasons have essentially come and gone without allowing Sunday hunting. Many hunters are prevented from introducing their children or friends to hunting because it is difficult to find time and opportunities outside of the work or school week.

Some of the other proposed rules improve opportunities for North Carolina sportsmen and women by expanding the ways they can take to the field while making use of new equipment on the market.

You may register here to participate in the hearing online by video conference, or you can call 888-788-0099 or 877-853-5247 using Webinar ID: 928 5632 3468 to participate by phone.

In addition, NCWRC is accepting comments until February 1st, by their online portal, by email to: [email protected], or by mail to:

Raleigh NC 27699-1701

What? So why can’t you hunt on Sunday? Is it because people might be attending church and don’t want to hear the boom or is it that they want the congregation in church and not out hunting like when the super bowl is played and attendance is low?
What if I am a Pentecost. Don’t they attend church on Saturday? What is the logic behind this law. Stupid is as stupid does.
What happened to separation of church and state.

MM44M,

Separation of Church and State doesn’t mean that the State can’t promote religion, or at least it didn’t until Murray came along. It meant, and is supposed to still mean, that the State can’t promote a specific religion over others.

It isn’t a hands off position, rather tit is a neutral position amongst the various religions. Blue Laws, of which this is one are to promote people goign to church rather than doing other things on Sunday.
But you already know all this.

In Pa the farm buraeu is against Sunday hunting. But are the first to cry crop damage. We were granted a couple Sundays this past hunting season. With written permission from land owner. And it looks as if we may get a couple extra next year. Lucky US. If there’s even a hunting season by then. Or if you have the tools needed.
