The Maine Senate may hold a floor vote as early as tomorrow, March 31st, on Sunday hunting legislation, LD 2014. As amended, LD 2014 allows Sunday hunting on private property with written landowner permission, statewide. Maine is just one of two states that does not allow any form of hunting on Sundays, due to an antiquated blue law left on the books. Please act now! Contact your State Senator and ask them to SUPPORT LD 2014!
Legislative Document 2014 allows Sunday hunting on private property with written landowner permission, statewide. Hunters provide millions of dollars to habitat restoration and conservation for healthy ecosystems throughout Maine. Unfortunately, Maine hunters are prevented from introducing their family or friends to hunting because they are competing with organized sports and other activities on Saturday, which is often their only opportunity to hunt outside of the work week. Countless hunters stop hunting because of the lack of opportunity and accessible land, as well as time restrictions. Providing an extra day in the field, especially on the weekend, increases opportunities for those individuals to experience one of America’s oldest traditions, and increases hunter retention.
Again, please contact your State Senator and ask them to SUPPORT LD 2014!
