Connecticut: Environment Committee to Hear Sunday Hunting Legislation Tomorrow

Tuesday, March 6, 2012

Tomorrow, at 10:30 a.m. in Room 2 B of the Legislative Office Building (LOB), the Environment Committee will hold a public hearing on Senate Bill 83 which seeks to allow Sunday hunting with bow and arrow on private property.

Currently, Connecticut is one of only six states in the country that strictly bans hunting on Sunday. This prohibition threatens the very future of our hunting heritage by discouraging hunter recruitment and retention. In addition, this antiquated ban harms Connecticut’s economy.

Due to increasingly demanding work, family and extracurricular schedules, older and younger hunters alike often have only Sundays available to hunt. The ban keeps them from remaining or becoming hooked on hunting. There is a reason that the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), a radical group whose ultimate goal is to end all hunting in America, is one of the most active advocates of maintaining the ban. Our opponents know that the future of hunting is at stake and you should too.

At a time when the economy is struggling and too many people are out of work, legislators must not continue to refuse the enormous economic benefits associated with allowing hunting on Sundays. Comprehensive research from the National Shooting Sports Foundation shows that allowing hunting on Sundays would generate a total annual economic impact estimated at $38 million and create 500 jobs.

If you are interested in testifying, please submit 40 copies of written testimony to the committee staff one hour prior to the start of the hearing in Room 2B of the LOB, or submit testimony electronically to Jason.Bowsza@cga.ct.gov.  Electronic submissions are preferred. Sign-up for the hearing will begin at 9:30 a.m. in Room 2B of the LOB at 300 Capitol Avenue in Harford. The first hour of the hearing is reserved for public officials. Speakers will be limited to three minutes of testimony.
