    Additional Sunday Hunting Won't Happen in 2019

    The Game Commission reminds hunters that steps toward Sunday Hunting remain in the process.

    Passing the state House of Representatives Oct. 29 by a 144-54 vote, legislation that would; provide expanded Sunday hunting opportunities in Pennsylvania appears likely to become law soon. But the Pennsylvania Game Commission wants hunters to know Senate Bill 147 has not been passed in final form yet, and even if it passes the state Senate a second time and is signed into law, it will not take effect until 90 days after passage. That means the bill, which would permit hunting on three Sundays one within the archery deer season, one within the firearms deer season, and one on another Sunday selected by the Game Commission will not provide additional Sunday hunting opportunity in 2019.

    The Senate is scheduled to vote on the bill Nov. 18, after the Nov. 16 close of the first segment of the statewide archery deer season. Even if the bill passes the Senate Nov. 18 and quickly is signed into law, the early archery and firearms deer seasons will have come and gone before the 90-day wait is over, and its likely the late archery season will have ended, too. However, the Game Commission still would be able to choose one Sunday for hunting in 2020, either in the spring turkey season or another open season.
    You can follow the progress of Senate Bill 147, which would remove the prohibition here:">
