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.
