Bill To Allow Some Sunday Hunting Introduced in West Virginia!

Friday, March 25, 2005

HB 3159 has been introduced by Representative Stemple and will allow Sunday hunting on publicly owned lands in West Virginia. Currently 39 states have no restrictions on Sunday hunting. HB 3159 does not change current regulations regarding Sunday hunting on private lands.

The prohibition on Sunday hunting is one of the last vestiges of the blue laws that restricted many activities on Sunday. Currently, hunters are treated as second-class citizens in West Virginia because their activity is restricted while other outdoor pursuits such as golf, fishing and horseback riding are permitted on Sundays.

Call your Representative and Senator today and urge them to support HB 3159!

For more information on Sunday hunting see our fact sheet.

Please call the following Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee members; their vote is critical for hunters in West Virginia.
