Thank you Scott for all your efforts. All these bills get killed by the Religious Right, its an old blue law. They all fail in the Agricultural Committee ruled by Lee Ware and never even get a floor vote. Va is the last Southern State to Ban Sunday Hunting, has the highest hunter attrition rate in the nation,is #6 in deer related auto crashes and has no deer management plan. This is also a major public health issue. Loudon County has one of the highest Lyme Disease rates in the nation. Virginians need to contact Delegates and Senators statewide to demand action!
