What's up with Sunday hunting?
The prohibition on Sunday hunting is in state law, and the Game Commission does not have the authority to change it. The Board has passed a resolution encouraging the General Assembly to give the Game Commission the authority to determine for which species Sunday hunting should be lawful, however, no legislation has passed. You can follow the progress of Senate Bill 147, which would remove the prohibition here: https://www.legis.state.pa.us/CFDOCS/billInfo/billInfo.cfm?syear=2019&sInd=0&body=S&type=B&bn=147
The Game Commission supports increased hunting opportunities on Sundays, however the bill has not yet become law and the current prohibition remains in effect. If there are any changes we will make every effort to let our hunters know.
