A bill to expand Sunday hunting in Pennsylvania gains more traction

But, supporters of Sunday hunting say the latest proposal is bittersweet; they asked for 14 Sundays, but changes to the legislation propose three.


Hunting groups are pushing for the Pennsylvania Game Commission to manage which three Sundays would be allowed, instead of lawmakers.

Harold daub, the executive director of the Pennsylvania Federation of Sportsmen and Conservationists says, "we want the subject matter experts here at the Pennsylvania Game Commission setting our season bag limits using scientific wildlife management to make those decisions."

The Pennsylvania Farm Bureau has continued to say farmers need one day a week for peace and quiet, and to move around their properties to do repairs.
