End the ban on Sunday hunting in Pennsylvania - vote on House Bill 1760

Pennsylvania needs to end the ban of hunting big game on Sundays. The number of hunters in PA is decreasing significantly. Less hunters means more deer related problems: more traffic accidents; more disease; and, more crop damage by deer.

The time constraints and complications brought on by modern life have made it difficult for hunters to get young hunters out on the field. With an increase in single parent families and in families with multiple working adults, it is challenging to find time to hunt during the work week. With the current ban, some families are left with just one day a week to hunt, unless they work Saturdays, then they cannot hunt at all.

Additionally, this will benefit PA's economy by making our area more attractive to hunters from surrounding states.  Real estate for camps, sporting goods stores, outfitters, guides, hotels, motels, restaurants, gas stations... Lots of business from hunters who might not want to make the trip for 1 day, but who might change their mind for 2 days.

      i love hunting and being able to hunt all 7 days of the week would be amazing and getting to take my 11 year old son out more than 1 day a weekend would get him more involved because i only have him on the weekends
