Pa. suit asks judge to toss ban on Sunday hunting

Posted: Updated:

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A hunters' group has asked a federal judge to throw out Pennsylvania's long-standing ban on Sunday hunting.

Hunters United for Sunday Hunting filed suit against the Pennsylvania Game Commission, the agency that enforces the state's game code.

The Lancaster County-based group says the state's ban on most types of hunting on Sunday is unconstitutional. The group contends the ban costs hunters an "irreparable loss" of time in the field.

Legislation that would have permitted hunting on Sundays died two years ago amid opposition from the state Farm Bureau. The farm bureau has said many people support preserving one day a week when people can be outside without running into hunters or hearing gunfire.
