Sunday Hunting Legislation Introduced In Pennsylvania

posted on June 18, 2015

Hunters in the Keystone State may soon be able to spend more of their weekends afield. At a press conference Tuesday at the state capitol, legislation was introduced to expand Sunday hunting opportunities and give the state Game Commission the authority to regulate Sunday hunting as it does the rest of the week.

Currently only two groups enjoy Sunday hunting privileges in Pennsylvania: varmint hunters and those who own large parcels of land. Because studies show that most hunters who stop do so because of lack of time, proponents hope that the increased opportunities will increase hunter retention and help attract new hunters. They also point to potential economic gains: According to NSSF research, allowing Sunday hunting in Pennsylvania would generate an estimated total annual economic impact of $764 million and create over 8,000 jobs. 

We hope that legislators will look at the benefits other states enjoy from Sunday hunting and vote accordingly.
