    Game commission gives preliminary approval for pennsylvania sunday hunting dates

    These are the dates Sunday hunting would be allowed in Pennsylvania:

    Nov. 15 for archery deer hunting
    Nov. 22 for bear hunting during the bear firearms season
    Nov. 29 for deer hunting during the firearms deer season
    Hunting on Sundays, which had been against longstanding "Blue Laws" in Pennsylvania, was approved and signed into legislation by the state's Gov. Tom Wolf in mid-December. It was Senate Bill 147 that took on the moniker "Sunday hunting bill," and was eventually signed as a new law.

    Approval and written permission from owners of private land must be obtained in order to hunt on Sundays in Pennsylvania. This keeps activities within existing anti-trespassing laws. Hunting on public land on Sundays is still prohibited.

    Though it's likely these proposed dates will be approved, the official hunting and trapping seasons will not be finalized until the Pennsylvania Game Commission's next meeting in early April.

    Over reaching government filed with bureaucrats who decided that free men couldn't/shouldn't hunt on Sundays.

    Just like over reaching laws about buying alcohol on Sundays or after 12 noon on Sundays. Nothing but attempts to control the citizens by the government.

    If it is public land, the citizens own it by definition. By what right can the state limit when you can hunt or do anything else on it?!? FUBAR!!!

    Another example of why it should be illegal for the government to own land that is not used specifically for national defense.

    Minnesota had blue laws on buying beer, wine and liquor on Sundays. Also, it was illegal to buy a car on Sunday. But hunting/fishing was only restricted to the season.
