Delaware: House Overwhelmingly Passes Sunday Hunting Legislation

May 12, 2016

Yesterday, the Delaware House of Representatives passed House Bill 289 by a 36-3 vote. HB 289 has been sent over to the Senate and referred to the Senate Natural Resources and Environmental Control Committee for further consideration.

Currently, Delaware prohibits any form of hunting on Sunday except for trapping, and hunting red foxes with dogs. Saturday is the only day that many are able to hunt due to being busy with work or school between Monday and Friday. This unnecessary time restriction forces countless hunters to stop hunting and prevents them from introducing their children to hunting because they are competing with organized sports and other activities on Saturday. Opening hunting on Sundays is vital to preserving Delaware’s hunting heritage for future generations to come.

Other outdoor activities are allowed on Sunday, including those that take place on public and private property, such as fishing, hiking and golf. Restrictions on Sunday hunting effectively treat hunters as second-class citizens and tacitly endorse the view of animal extremists that there is something wrong with hunting. Such a view ignores the fact that hunting is part of America’s heritage and hunters contribute billions of dollars to wildlife and conservation programs, through license fees and revenues generated through purchases of firearms, ammunition and archery equipment.
