Hold your fire! Sunday hunting not legal yet, game commission says

The House of Representatives has passed a bill approving Sunday hunting in Pennsylvania, but the Senate is not expected to consider the legislation until it returns at the end of this month.

That means Sunday hunting will not go into effect until 2020 at the earliest, according to information from the Pennsylvania Game Commission.

The bill would allow Sunday hunting once during archery deer season, once during firearms deer season and once on a Sunday chosen by the Game Commission.

“There’s every reason, however, to believe Senate Bill 147 soon will become law,” said Game Commission Executive Director Bryan Burhans. “And the Game Commission will be doing its part to implement additional Sunday hunting opportunities as soon as it can.”
