The fight to legalize Sunday hunting in Pennsylvania is taking on a new form. And It’s not one everyone supports.
The grassroots group Hunters United for Sunday Hunting initially formed more than a year ago. Its goal was to convince lawmakers to remove the “blue law” prohibiting hunting Sundays. That would not mandate hunting on Sundays. It would only give the Pennsylvania Game Commission the authority to decide which, if any, to add to the hunting calendar.
Supporters say Sunday hunting would increase opportunities for working people, families and youths otherwise tied up with work, school and sports to get outdoors. The idea has gotten no traction, however. State Rep. Bob Godshall of Montgomery County introduced House Bill 71 on Jan. 23 of 2017. It would eliminate the Sunday hunting ban.
Fourteen co-sponsors signed on, but it has gone nowhere at this point.
