General Assembly approves forms of Sunday hunting
Legislation to allow certain forms of hunting on Sundays has passed both chambers of the General Assembly and is expected to be signed into law by Gov. Terry McAuliffe.
House Bill 1237, which received overwhelming support from the House of Delegates and Senate, allows a person to hunt waterfowl – subject to restrictions imposed by the Director of the Department of game and Inland Fisheries – and wild birds or wild animals with the written permission of the landowner on Sundays. Neither of those activities can occur within 200 yards of a church or other place of worship, however.
The bill was co-sponsored by several local delegates, and none of Loudoun's delegates or senators opposed the measure.
