Sunday Hunting ... North Carolina to study issue... INPUT needed

Never on Sunday: Hunting ban studied

The ban on Sunday hunting, an issue that puts hunters, outdoors, farm and family-values groups at odds, will get the scrutiny of the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission.

Gov. Mike Easley requested a study of the controversial issue so as to come up with a report on whether to relax, abolish or keep the 136-year-old ban. The report would go to the legislature before its 2007-08 session.

North Carolina is one of 10 states that forbids hunting on Sunday under a law passed by the 1868-69 legislature. Even hunters are split on the issue; some want the ban lifted, others want it kept in place.

"Previously, no definitive study has been done in North Carolina that addresses this topic by looking at the desires of potential stakeholders, fiscal costs/benefits, hunter recruitment and retention and impacts on the wildlife resource," according to a briefing paper presented to the 19 commissioners last month.

The commission will seek input from hunters, landowners, churches, the N.C. Farm Bureau, conservation organizations and the public.

I for one wish they would make it legal to hunt in Sunday , we pay good money for the hunting items and most are off on Sat/Sun and can only hunt 1 day . Bullcrap . If you are military , retired military , 50% or higher disabled vet , DoD civilian you can hunt on Ft.Bragg , Camp MacKall on Sunday , so why the heck can't the rest of us hunt on Sunday , You can buy alcohol on Sunday , you can fish on Sunday , Come on NC wake up

Let Us hunt

I wish they would let us hunt..........Not only you older people that work but us younger people that have school. We all have 2 day weekends and only one day to hunt on this weekend. But thats just my thought its gunna take more than 4 or 5 people to push this.
