Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session

To: All Senate members
Subject: Limited Sunday Hunting on State Game Lands

In the near future, I will be introducing legislation to allow for limited Sunday hunting on PA State Game Lands. Two Sundays during the combined antler and antlerless deer seasons for hunting white-tailed deer on State Game Lands and one Sunday during the statewide black bear season for hunting black bear on State Game Lands.

The State game lands were purchased with proceeds from hunting licenses, federal tax on guns and ammunition, not with state tax money.

A 2010 PA Legislative Budget and Finance Committee report stated allowing Sunday hunting even on just two Sundays of the general deer season would have a positive economic impact and keep Pennsylvania hunters in the state for a full weekend of hunting as well as attract out-of-state hunters to our Commonwealth.

Introduced as SB1081
