Sunday Hunting Bill Formally Signed into Law

Governor Wolf today (December 17) formally signed legislation allowing hunting on up to three Sundays each year, according to Senator Dan Laughlin (R-49), prime sponsor of the measure.

 The new law provides for hunting on three Sundays: one during rifle deer season, one during the statewide archery deer season and one on a Sunday determined by the Pennsylvania Game Commission. The measure makes trespassing while hunting a primary offense and increases the penalties for the offense. The new law further provides that hunters must have the written permission of the landowner to hunt on private property on any Sunday.
