Can Common Ground be Found on Sunday Hunting?

Many probably think that question was answered with the passage of a limited Sunday Hunting bill this year but they would be wrong. Lee Tolliver writes on the subject in the Virginian Pilot and notes divide in the hunting community still is strong. One if the main opponents of Sunday Hunting is a group representing those who hunt with dogs. And while the new law prohibits hunting with dogs in Sunday, this group still would have opposed Sunday hunting even if it had allowed bill hunting with dogs.

Some traditions die hard, but prohibiting hunting on Sunday is one that should die. This year's bill signed into law by Governor McAuliffe was a good compromise.
