Please Contact the Members of the House Environmental Matters Committee Immediately!
Tomorrow, Wednesday, February 25 the House Environmental Matters Committee will consider House Bill 663.
HB 663 would remove restrictions on a person’s ability to hunt deer on specified Sundays on private property in Baltimore County.
Sunday hunting has no detrimental effect on wildlife populations as those states permitting it have healthy and abundant wildlife. Many hunters - be it young or old, novice or experienced - stop hunting because of the lack of opportunity, both in time and accessible land. The addition of an extra day in the field increases a person’s available time to enjoy our hunting heritage. Sunday hunting will also bring a much-needed economic boost to rural areas. Every day that hunters are in the field, they spend money on gas, food, lodging and the dozens of other incidentals that go along with a day’s hunt. The ripple effect of this spending can have a major impact on a rural town or county. This legislation will clearly help advance and preserve Maryland’s rich hunting traditions.
Please contact the members of the Environmental Matters Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to vote in favor of HB 663. Contact information can be found below.
