Fight to hunt Sundays

ROSS TOWNSHIP, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) The push to lift the ban on hunting on Sunday continues for Commonwealth hunters. 

For years harvesters has asked Harrisburg to stop the prohibition. Senator Daniel Laughlin of Erie County is the prime sponsor of Senate Bill 1202 that currently sits in the Game and Fisheries committee before it moves onto congress.

The bill would allow harvesters to hunt on Sunday's making it a seven day sport. 

"Especially for the younger guys who work and only have the weekend off," said David Pascoe of Nanticoke. 

"We need to remove this time barrier and allow people the opportunity to get out and enjoy the field and forest hunting so that we have a good strong conservation community here in Pennsylvania," said Harold Daub, Executive Director, Hunters United Sunday Hunting or HUSH. 

In Dauphin County, HUSH hosted their It's about time conference. The group's mission is to educate and influence legislatures in changing PA Title 34 Game Law to allow the change. 

If you would like to let Patrick Stefano, Chair of the Game and Fisheries know your opinion on the bill, call his office at (717) 787-7175.
