Bills Filed within the Legislature regarding Sunday Bow Hunting

Posted by president on June 12th, 2015

Below are the bills filed within the Legislature to address Sunday Bow hunting and Sunday Hunting for all implements as reported by Ken Brown:

S. 415: An Act expanding the powers of the director of Fisheries and Wildlife
This bill would give the power to the director of Fisheries and Wildlife to allow bow hunting for deer on Sundays.
•Sponsor: Senator Anne Gobi
•Status: Sent to Environment, Natural Resources & Agriculture Committee

H. 672: An Act expanding the powers of the director of Fisheries and Wildlife
This bill would give the power to the director of Fisheries and Wildlife to allow Sunday Hunting.
•Sponsor: Representative Paul Frost
•Status: Sent to Environment, Natural Resources & Agriculture Committee

H. 762: An Act Authorizing the Use of Bow and Arrows for Sunday Hunting
This bill would allow bow hunting on Sundays.
•Sponsor: Representative Straus
•Status: Sent to Environment, Natural Resources & Agriculture Committee

S. 424: An Act Relative to hunting with bow and arrow
This bill would allow bow hunting on Sundays.
•Sponsor: Senator Anne Gobi
•Status: Sent to Environment, Natural Resources & Agriculture Committee

S. 429: An Act relative to Sunday Hunting
This bill would allow hunting on Sundays.
•Sponsor: Senator Humason
•Status: Sent to Environment, Natural Resources & Agriculture Committee

H. 3236: An Act relative to the repeal of Sunday Hunting restrictions
This bill would allow hunting on Sundays.
•Sponsor: Senator Humason
•Status: Sent to Environment, Natural Resources & Agriculture Committee

H. 3239: An Act relative to the repeal of Sunday Hunting restrictions
This bill would allow hunting on Sundays.
•Sponsor: Senator Humason
•Status: Sent to Environment, Natural Resources & Agriculture Committee

There has been no movement on these bills as the Committee on Environment, Natural Resources & Agriculture has not met and has cancelled any scheduled meetings.

According to executive members of the Administration, the House and Senate are not working well together right now and it is a source of significant frustration, not just on these bills, but on many others as well. With Anne Gobi moving to the Senate (and also co-chair of the Committee) and sponsoring 2 bills allowing Sunday Bow hunting, we are better positioned in the Senate for passage. However, nothing happens if we can’t get the bill(s) out of Committee. Expect consolidation of the Sunday Bow hunting bills to occur in Committee. We will support any bill that gives us this opportunity.
