Seems there are many reasons mentioned , a lot of which do not make sense, to prohibit Sunday hunting. When the issue was raised in the past folks would give a "reason" to prohibit hunting based on opinion.
If we go back far enough I think we will see that Sunday hunting was more of an issue related to religion and Sunday being the day of rest. As the rest of our society does not appear to abide by these traditions then hunters should not be held to a set of values that no one else is held to. Sports events,opening department stores,concerts , etc..., all take place on Sunday , so it would seem Sunday hunting would not be out of the norm.

There is no rational reason for the Sunday hunting ban. It is the most anti-working-person law I can fathom. And it's particularly burdensome for youth who would like to get into hunting but often have team sports events on Saturdays. As the father of two young sons, I'm really hoping this law will be changed in the next few years so they don't have to choose between hunting and team sports.

Concern --- Answer

My horses! --- Don't hunt horses/run your horses on private land.

Animals Need rest! --- Ever seen hunters out M-Th? Exactly.

Sabbath Day! ---- Are you kidding? Take that up with the golf industry.

# of overall hunting days! --- So shorten season/manage bag limits appropriately (I know this matters for migratory birds in particular)

I want to go hiking! -- There are plenty of places to go hiking that don't allow hunting. How many people actually want to hike WMAs and National Forests on Sundays when it's cold outside?

Almost every state now allows Sunday hunting. Maryland (by county) and Virginia are the exceptions!

Good background info:

No good facts available to NOT have Sunday hunting

"Sunday NO hunting" is more an anti-'gun'/'hunt' rule than any other reason. It is hard for 'working' folk to get allowable hunting days and school kids do not get hunting days! Like it used to be 'off first day of season' then you could bring your hunting tools to school parking lot also.
No valid reason. Plenty of deer or Wildlife management would change number harvested per person per tool.
Do not hear complaints about hunting Jewish Sabbath. Would it be ok to hunt on Sunday if I wore a burka? (Where do you suppose I could get a florescent orange burka?) Not being anti-religious but why can't I hunt after Church on Sunday?
Voted yes. Climbing down from ammo can now.

It was actually frank boston - ua’s outside tax attorney but id be shocked if plank didnt have some connections to the council. Anyone who hunts and still buys ua is an idiot fudd at this point after the Sara Bowmar incident. Plank’s house construction project ruined hunting at a lease i used to hold off greenspring/garrison for two seasons straight w the 24x7 truck traffic hauling (probably illegally) fill dirt around and dumping at sagamore farm. My septic system is uphill from where he draws the water for his whiskey from there btw. Hope every #2 i take adds a little flavor.

Interesting you bring this up as I was in West Virginia over the weekend and thinking about it. In western NY it is legal to hunt on Sunday and it gives you two days you can hunt. I see no reason why this is not legal, but Maryland has had blue laws since I was a little kid. When I was young, stores were not open on Sundays, but all of that has changed. It is time our hunting laws changed to "keep up with the times".
