If you’re interested in exploring history in remote areas of Pennsylvania, you should be concerned about the current push to legalize Sunday hunting in Pennsylvania. If passed, it would mean that people like us who like to explore are at substantial risk of death due to injuries inflicted by careless hunters. We feel that it is only fair that non-hunters have one day of the week that we can safely move about the woods. Many hunters I have personally spoken to agree, and believe the Sunday hunting is primarily aimed at drawing more out of state hunters.
The argument has largely been put in financial terms: the state believes they can make nearly a billion extra dollars by opening Sunday hunting. First of all, that seems highly unlikely. Second of all, fixing the state budget woes by endangering the few citizens who get off their fat asses and do something seems absurd and unfair.
The Pennsylvania Farm Bureau is OPPOSING the Sunday hunting bill. Please check out their website for details. You can also visit the Pennsylvania General Assembly Website to contact state legislators. PLEASE take a minute to send an email or call your representatives and VOICE YOUR OPPOSITION TO SUNDAY HUNTING.
Explore safely! Explore without Sunday hunting!
