North Carolina Legislation to Overturn Sunday Hunting Restrictions2/11/09
A bill in the North Carolina legislature will allow the state to join the majority of other states that allow Sunday hunting without restrictions.
Senate Bill 9, introduced by Senator Julia Boseman (D- Wilmington), would remove a longtime prohibition that has been set in state law since the 1800s. Currently, North Carolina is one of only eleven states to limit Sunday hunting. Seven states completely prohibit it, including: Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Virginia, New Jersey and Connecticut.
Four others have certain limitations including Maryland, South Carolina, North Carolina, and West Virginia. Currently, in North Carolina some limited Sunday hunting is allowed on federal lands. SB 9 would open it up completely.
