Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- Yesterday, the Senate Game and Fisheries Committee passed pro-hunting legislation, Senate Bill 147, by an 8 to 3 vote. SB 147 now heads to the Senate floor for further consideration. Please contact your state Senator and strongly urge them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 147 when it comes up for a vote.

Senate Bill 147, sponsored by Senator Daniel Laughlin, would expand hunting opportunities for Pennsylvania hunters by eliminating the prohibition against hunting on Sundays.

Prohibitions on Sunday hunting are old blue laws left on the books in just a few states. They deny hunters access one day per week despite the fact that each year, hunters pump millions of dollars into habitat restoration and conservation through Pittman-Robertson funds.

Many hunters are prevented from introducing their children or friends to hunting because they are competing against organized sports and other activities on Saturday, which is currently their only opportunity to hunt outside of the work or school week. Countless hunters stop hunting because of the lack of opportunity, both in time and accessible land. The addition of an extra day in the field, especially on the weekend, increases the opportunity to enjoy our hunting heritage. Allowing hunting on Sundays will invigorate essential hunter recruitment and retention efforts.

Again, please contact your state Senator and urge them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 147.
