What the New Sunday Hunting Law Means to You

Bill Cochran at the Roanoke Times notes what the new Sunday Hunting Law means for hunters:
...Firearm’s deer season will be lengthened by as many as nine days in some areas; bear season by as many as 13; fall turkey by as many as six; spring gobbler season by five; doves, 10; rabbits, 17; squirrels, 27.
Cochran also notes that there will be 12 additional days for hunting quail, if you are lucky enough to live where the species has not completely disappeared. He also writes that the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (DGIF) is waiting on the AG's office to give an official opinion on what the term "landowner" means and once they get the clarification (one would think that is not all that hard but we are talking about lawyers) the agency will begin a public education campaign.

It should be noted, that if you go after nuisance species like groundhogs or predator species like coyotes, which have a year-round open season, you get to start taking advantage of Sunday Hunting now on private property.
