Can we have at least 1 day per week where we can enjoy wildlife and the woods without worrying about some hunter mistaking us for deer?

Susan Lawrence writes:

It's frustrating if you work a job that only allows you Sunday to hunt on your own property. Like the Blue Law, it's time for this one to go. Most states allow hunting on Sunday. It's only for a few weeks each year. At least allow property owners the ability to hunt on their own land on Sunday.

Seems to me like the existing law is based on an unconstitutional establishment of religion. I hope this passes.

I agree with Waldo. You should be able to hunt on any day.

I'm glad this bill failed as far as public lands, but I do agree people should be allowed to hunt on their own land at any time.
