Sunday Hunting (and other) Legislation UPDATED

Support Sunday Hunting!

Contact your legislator - TODAY!

The Connecticut Legislative environment Committee will be hearing testimony of a variety of bills this coming Monday, February 25th. Call or email BEFORE Monday! Be brief and to the point. Be polite. Identify the issue and the Bill number. It also helps to identify what town you are from and who you are.

     E-mails may be more effective since it gives the legislature a way to document in writing the number of people responding to the specific issue.

     FOR: Proposals regarding Sunday hunting, on private land and on "certain tree farms" will be heard. You should contact your legislators supporting these bills. Bills related to Sunday Hunting include: House Bills: 5200, 5204, 5413, 5847 as well as Senate Bills 0558 and 0559. Identify these bills in your email or phone call.
     AGAINST: A Proposal to prohibit hunting in proximity to wildlife preserves in the state, That is House Bill 6305. It is so vague that it could be completely ~ and easily ~ misinterpreted. Identify this bill in your email or phone call.
