Not quite sure how making Sunday hunting illegal in Texas would fix any of the valid issues you have presented.
It doesn't fix the issues that happen 6 days a week, but it does give those that want to ride, hike, fish, canoe whatever one day where they don't have to wear ugly blaze orange and worry about being shot.
Do something to aleviate the concerns of the non sunday hunting groups, surprisingly many of whom are hunters. You will see Sunday hunting opposition disappear.
I agree 100%. Most people who don't want Sunday hunting feel that way because of the yahoos as you mentioned. But they would gladly
having hunting 7 days a week if it meant having responsible hunting and laws that were actually enforced. I know where I grew up in New Jersey (yes NJ has boonies!) there was 7 day a week hunting and big hunting community. Never heard of any issue with dogs, poaching or trespassing. Nobody cared that hunting was 7 days.
I think VA hunters are putting the cart before the horse. Get some better enforcement on how people hunt, then ask for another day of it. It's a shame that some hooligans sprinkled around the state can ruin everything for the whole state. But honestly this sounds like hunters need to be angry at their own.
But really doesn't Virginia have the longest deer hunting season of any state? Even without Sundays, y'all get a pretty long season compared to other states.
