NRA Victory: PA Welcomes Sunday Hunting

Fairfax, Va. - The National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) applauds Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf for signing Sunday hunting expansion into law.

Senate Bill 147, which had overwhelming bipartisan support in the Pennsylvania General Assembly, expands opportunities for Pennsylvania hunters by providing for three additional days of hunting on Sundays during the season.

“Today is a huge win for sportsmen and women in Pennsylvania,” said Jason Ouimet, executive director, NRA-ILA. “Hunters have waited far too long for the freedom to hunt on Sunday, the same freedom they enjoy any other day of the week that works for them and their families. I thank the Pennsylvania House and Senate for passing this historic legislation.”

Many hunters are prevented from introducing their children or friends to hunting because it is difficult to find time and opportunities outside of the work or school week. Countless hunters stop hunting because of this reality in their hectic lives. Senate Bill 147 seeks to increase Pennsylvania hunters’ ability to enjoy America's hunting heritage and will improve hunter recruitment and retention efforts.

Hunters are responsible for millions of acres of habitat restoration and conservation dollars through Pittman-Robertson taxes paid on firearms and other hunting equipment and should have access to the public lands made possible by these funds.
