Letter to the editor: Legalize Sunday hunting

Regarding the article “Sunday hunting push faces obstacles in Pennsylvania,” Sept. 14, TribLIVE): It is time to take the Pennsylvania Farm bureau out of the mix altogether. Legalize Sunday hunting in state forests and on state gamelands and be done with it.

The bureau claims written permission from landowners is a sticking point. And when legislators finally cave and give the bureau that, it will think of something else to stall.

And as far as the Keystone Trails Association? Hikers, just wear the required amount of blaze orange. See, that’s not so hard.

We can drink and gamble on Sundays — why not hunt? There is enough state land around; you really don’t need to beg a farmer to hunt. It is a shame that these two groups can ruin it for hunters who want to hunt on Sundays.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
