posted this on another forum. basically i think we are going after subday hunting the wrong way. the onlytime i have made any head way with some one against it was after i asked him how he would feel if he couldnt ride his sled on sunday. after all, since his excuse was hunting disturbs the peace of a sunday afternoon, i assured him that i make a hell of a lot less noise walking thru the woods with my bow than he does on his sled. take it further, many people who dont hunt just flat out say we dont NEED to hunt on sunday, we have 6 other days. well, you dont NEED to fish on sunday, you dont NEED to look at birds on sunday, you dont NEED to hike on sunday........i have gotten a little ways with folks that have never looked at that way b4. i am only one person but if we all tried that approach who knows, we cant do any worse than we are now.

I certainly agree with Kenton6 on this one, well said my friend. Sunday hunting is not allowed for the very reasons kenton mentioned. It has absolutely nothing to do with religion. people feel (tree huggers) they need a day to enjoy the wilderness. I guess doing that in april, may, june, july, august, and september is not enough. I am certainly for sunday hunting. I know way to many hunters who work all week from light to dark and the weekend is there only time to hunt. leaves them one day, if they don't work on saturday. it certaily is not right, but kenton has the right attitude. Going in this with the gloves off is not a good idea. We certaily need the relations with the landowners to start with. Hopefully it will all work out some day.
Hunting on sunday has absolutely nothing to do with God. I love the Lord also my friend. And I probably would not hunt on sunday, but spend it with my family. Problem is, there a lot of guys who don't get to hunt during the week. Sunday would be good for them. As far as hikers, or people going in the woods, I stand by what I said early. They have May, june, july, august, september to hike. Hunters only have two months to hunt. You tell me if thats fair!!!!! Not trying to raise any tempers by saying that, but this is why there is no sunday hunting. God Bless.
