Default Sunday Hunting ban

We have no hunting on Sundays here in Virginia. I am not sure if anyone has ever attacked the ban on Sunday hunting like this....doesn't no hunting on Sundays violate "equal protection" laws?

For example, what if a guy worked Monday-Saturday and his only day off were Sunday to hunt?

Doesn't banning hunting on Sundays unfairly hurt the working class hunters, many of whom have to work on Saturdays?

I'm all for hunting on Sundays. I feel that if the liquor stores and the 7-11's are open and sell beer to peoplethat go home and watch football all afternoon, why can't I go hunting?????

People say that it's a "blue law" because it's a "Sunday" thing. If that's the case, then stop selling beer on Sunday! Theydon't want to hear that because they'll be losing too much money by doing so.

There's no beer in Indiana on Sunday, but we do get to go hunting.

I think laws banning certain acivities on Sundays are BS. I guess that is what happens when too many politicians take their personal beliefs to the office and try to influence others to follow their lead.

It is the same thing here in Maine as well.. It sucks but we had to live with it for years now. We have tried to change it before with no luck. All we can do is keep trying and who knows maybe someday it will change..

I have seen these threads before and it always amazes me how many hunters are against Sunday hunting . Things are beginning to change here in Maryland we now have some Sunday hunting on private land in a few counties but it is only for deer hunting , only on private property and only a limited number of Sundays
