I'm fairly certain you're mistaken. It has everything to do with outdated, unnecessary blue laws and resistance from certain user-groups (e.g., equestrians). If hunting pressure via Sunday hunting increased enough to appreciably increase harvest, bag limits would be adjusted. It blows my mind that in this day and age, these laws remain on the books.
