The only problem with joes arguement is that he is probally a non hunter. Everyone has to look at it from both sides of the table the average working person works monday thru friday 8 to 5 therefore only giving them one day to hunt but at the same time its giving the horse people and bird watchers only one day to enjoy their time in the outdoors if knowing who hunts where you ride or where ever you bird watch find out where people hunt and stay out of that area simple as that!!!!!!!!

My hunting status is irrelevant. Something you have no information on and really don't have any business saying what I am or am not. Not that it has anything to do with this discussion. My position on hunting in general has nothing to do with the validity of the facts and opinions I have presented. Unlike some on the other side that hide behind fake names and wont disclose the fact they have a financial vested interest in changing the status quo. I have made it clear I am very anti sunday hunting. If you read through the posts, you will see your suggestion to, "find out where people hunt" is the problem. People hunt anywhere and everywhere, there is no respect for property lines and very weak trespass laws as well as non enforcement of the road hunting and weak laws we do have. Also the non hunting outdoor people have every bit as much right to access the public land. Currently you can hunt 6 days a week including all holidays. As you mentioned many people work M-F. The current system allows hunting on half the weekend days, (pretty fair) and all holidays. Actually kinda unfair using your 50/50 logic.
There are more than enough days to hunt, adding a few more is wrong.

EXACTLY! I too had him pegged a dozen pages ago. There are anti-hunting elements out there that are pretending to be "against Sunday hunting" while be disenginious and hiding the fact that they don't want any hunting the other 6 days of the week either.

What the PETA and HSUS types realize is that this is a battle not for hunting today, but the status of hunting in Virginia 20/30/40/50 years from now. I'm a father of 4 young children and I can tell you that kids today are pulled away from the woods by sports and school. Gone are the days taking your gun in the car to school and going straight into the woods after school gets out. Kids today have hours of homework that has to be done AFTER practice.

The anti-hunting extremist crowd knows that making certain access to the woods continues to be restricted that every year we will continue to see the decline in participation as yet another family tradition dies.

I didn't read thru the whole thread, but as far as I can understand, the facts are these:

1. Sunday hunting currently is illegal in VA.
2. The hunters in Joe's area can get pretty unsavory and irresponsible.
3. They are considering abolishing the ban on Sunday hunting.

Am I correct?

Sorta, actually the "they" seems to only be pay to hunt landowners, and the dept of natural resources waving around a rigged survey both of which stand to have significant financial gains. I really havent come up with any groups of any number that even want this. My intent of this thread was to alert people to changes being pushed by a very small but vocal minority. The issue tends to come up every year and it tends to be quickly canceled. Hopefully if we stay vigilant it will stay that way. Pretty much every thing that needs to be said or can be said has been. This thread must show up in a google search as we seem to get a few trolls that have nothing to do with this horse forum other than to throw what they perceive to be insults.
