A Proposed Sunday Hunting Bill in Howard County MD was DROPPED
YOU CAN DO IT !
HOORAY! A proposed Sunday Hunting Bill in Howard
County, MD, was DROPPED.
At a public hearing on December 19, 2012,
Delegate Gail Bates introduced a Sunday Hunting bill at the request of 'one'
hunter from a neighboring county, to add insult to injury. In the State of
Maryland only three counties continue to prohibit Sunday hunting. They are
Prince George's County, Baltimore County and Howard County.
County less than one percent of the residents purchased hunting licenses
during the 2012 hunting season.
Individuals who opposed the bill outnumbered the hunters three to one at
the hearing. The equestrian community joined the anti-hunting advocates
against the bill. The public strongly expressed their opposition unanimously
stating, "They have six days, all we want is one".
As a result of the
public's outcry, the proposed Sunday Hunting bill for Howard County has been
dropped for the 2013 legislative year. Unfortunately, Delegate Bates has
stated that she may reintroduce the bill again next year.
