Two Sunday Hunting Bills Introduced in Maryland

Monday, February 1, 2010

Please Contact the Members of the House Environmental Committee!

House Bill 245 and House Bill 246 have been introduced in Annapolis. These bills have been assigned to the House Environmental Matters Committee where they await a hearing.

HB245, sponsored by the Allegany County delegation, would authorize a person to hunt turkey in Allegany County on the last Sunday in April and the first Sunday in May, except for Easter Sunday.

HB246, sponsored by both the Allegany County and Garrett County delegations, would allow a person in Allegany County and Garrett County to hunt for deer on private property with a bow and arrow during open season on the last three Sundays in October and the second Sunday in November.

Game populations are at all time highs thanks to hunting as the primary wildlife management tool and leading conservation model.  Hunters pump millions of dollars into habitat restoration and are responsible for healthy ecosystems throughout Maryland.  Sunday hunting provides biologists, wildlife managers, and sportsmen another tool and opportunity to encourage forest health and lower the odds of wildlife-vehicular accidents in Maryland.  Many hunters cannot introduce their children or friends to hunting because Saturday is their only opportunity, and they are competing with the numerous organized sports and activities.  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, while enhancing biodiversity and wildlife populations.

Please contact the members of the House Environmental Matters Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to pass HB245 and HB246. Contact information can be found below.
