    Yes the biggest opponent is the PA Farm Bureau. ALL PRIVATE LAND OWNERS can restrict access to their property and not allow hunting on SUnday or Hunting period. NO ONE is trying to force any one to allow hunting on Sunday. No ONE is required to allow Sunday Hunting if Senate Bill #1202 is passed. The Bill will simply remove the Prohibition on Sunday Hunting and then the PA Game Commission will decide how Sunday hunting would be implemented. Senate Bill #1202 has language that addresses the concerns of Farmers by strengthening Trespassing LAWs. I think ALL PA Landowners benefit from stronger Trespassing laws.

They even oppose Sunday hunting on SGL and state forests. They know that is how it was fully implemented in other states. Once people saw all the terrible things about Sunday hunting didn't happen it was no longer an issue.
    There is right NOW one REPUBLICAN SENATOR - Patrick J. Stefano who is the CHAIR of the SENATE COMMITTEE on Game and Fish that is preventing this Senate Bill #1202 from moving out of Committee to be presented to the General Assembly for a vote. This ONE SENATOR is where the hyperfocus of effort and energy for those hoping to see Sunday HUnting in PA needs to be. He really needs to hear from ALL who are in favor of Sunday Hunting.

    However, he is not the only one. The focus also needs to be during the 2019 legislative session. We need to also Tell our own State Senators and Congress People that we favor Sunday HUnting. We also need to specifically contact the Senate Majority and Minority leaders and tell them we want Sunday Hunting. We need to use the energy of the Nov. Elections to engage out elected representatives in the issue.

    Not trying to crap on your agenda, but I live in the boonies.

    Call me crazy, but I like one day of quiet and safety per week.

    Deer season around here is a noisy time and you better wear orange if you go anywhere near the woods, even on your own land.

    Status Quo suits me fine.

    I appreciate your concern. The Deer Rifle Season in PA is two weeks the last week in Nov. and the First Week in Dec. Sunday Hunting During the PA Deer Rifle Season means TWO additional Sundays. The bigger picture is the impact that Sunday Hunting Prohibition has on Hunting License Sales and Hunter Recruitment. Less license sales means less money to fund Conservation in the Wild Places of PA. The removal of the Prohibition on Sunday would mean more time for many people to hunt and likely increase license sales and hunter recruitment. This additionally would benefit gun owners in this time of struggle for our 2nd Amendment rights because more hunters likely means more NRA members and people likely to side with PRO-2nd Amendment Rights issues.
