and I know at least 5 landowners that will change their land from hunting with permission to no hunting at any time if it passes.
Might go out for a late afternoon hunt.
and i dont understand why they would do this ??
Me neither. Its a ridiculous attempt to sway public and then legislative opinion. A landowner informing a hunter asking for permission to hunt his property to stay off on Sundays is no different than asking the hunter not to park in a certain field, or approach the farm from a certain direction during early morning hours, or to stay out of certain fields because of the cows, etc.
If they don't want the intrusion on Sundays, then make it a condition prior to granting permission. I hunted private ground where opening week was off limits. That condition is no different than a landowner informing me that Sundays are off limits.
"So much of this business of hunting turkeys, you stupid it up right at the last.
You do everything right for an hour and a half, and then you sit down here
and there's nothing you can do about it, you made a mistake."
