Hunting on Sunday

I live out here in the wild west and I must admit I never heard such a thing as hunting NOT being allowed on Sunday. Crazy. I mean crazy because it seems our government has been successful in taking religion away from every other affair in life - why not hunting? (I assume the no-hunting-on-Sunday thing has a religious origin.)

I am a deeply spiritual-religious person - and sometimes I go hunting on Sunday `to save my @$$'.

I have five active kids, a feisty wife, two golden retreivers (soon to be three), four cats, three birds, and probably some other creatures running around I forgot about, plus childrens' friends, neighbors' cats, and a lady down the street who is flat broke and I give her meat from time to time.

So, yeah, I hunt on Sundays. Actually, I hunt every day of the week - when I can pull it off and not overstrain my family and work.

I do, however, or maybe I should say, also ... believe that we need at least some time each week to decompress, contemplate, `consider our maker', fall back and regroup, personally and as a family, etc. Sometimes some of this can be accomplished hunting - and sometimes I forego hunting to accomplish it. It's up to each one of us to find that `sabbath'. And whether it's on a Sunday, Saturday, or some day in between - that's not for the gov't to decide.

Hunting on Sunday

Wow - total agreement.

It is much more fun when someone disagrees.

I wonder what arguments the opposition will put forth in VA and NC?

I go to Church, but that is my decision. I should not impose my beliefs on someone else and neither should the government.

Sometimes I go to Church in the morning and do an afternoon hunt on Sunday.
