they say its not looking good, there is some kind of special meeting being called at an offtime, speculation is so they can kill the bill quietly

Believe it has to do with training their dogs on sunday free of hunters.

Scottycoyote.....this is what I think......when you use dogs to hunt on saturday and you don't find them all after the hunt then Sunday is the day you go out to look for them......now if you were to use them on Sunday and don't find them all after the hunt is over what do you do.....????....take off Monday....????...let them run the woods all week and hope they don't get hit by a car on the road or just get lost and you never get them back....so to me it seems like the dog hunters that don't want Sunday hunting are saying if I can't hunt on Sunday because I can't / won't use my dogs then I don't want ANYBODY to hunt Sunday.....that's just my .02

I DON'T FREAKIN' BELIEVE IT..... SB464 FAILED !!!!

As I posted on VA Sportsmen this morning...
Hey guys...

My wife had to get up early this morning to open the daycare center where she works. Over in the west end of Richmond, right near Gayton Rd and Pump Rd., she hit a doe this morning with her Chevy Cobalt.

She's okay. Everything is cool. She's upset, pi$$ed off and stuff, but it could have been worse!

The doe took off to parts unknown into someone's yard. The Chevy Cobalt has a busted grill, dented hood, and no sign of really severe damage (thank God). We didn't want to drive it, and had it towed to Dominion Chevy in Short Pump.
NOW AIN'T THIS JUST IRONIC... SB464 GETS SHOT DOWN AND MY WIFE HITS A $&#^% DEER THIS MORNING!!!!!!!!

Lastly, thank you, Virginia... Thank you... Continue to keep Virginia stuck in the 1890's. You just lost a hunter! I'm done hunting in Virginia! I'll hunt my sister & brother-in-law's farm up in upstate NY from now on!
