I can respect your opinion DuckMauler and agree with you in part. I get to hunt more during the week than I ever do on the weekends. If I am not working on a weekend then I am spending time with the family. I don’t believe it makes you any less of a Christian if someone chooses to hunt on a Sunday morning. I was always brought up to believe church is where you make it. Prayer means just as much to God whether it comes from a bench in a duck blind or a church pew in front of the pulpit. I do agree with you that this country has taken a drastic turn from the religious ideals and fundamentals that it was founded on. I would love to see our country back on track as much as anyone but I don’t feel that just because someone chooses to hunt on a Sunday morning it compromises their beliefs or who they are. Yes we are in the Bible belt as some would say and I am proud to live in it. I hunt with a great group of guys and, God and prayer is a huge part of who we are. It’s sad to say but we probably pray more at the supper table at duck camp than we do at home sometimes. That is where we fall short but it’s no one’s fault but our own. I meant absolutely no disrespect with this post and it’s great to see that there are still some good ole boys left out there. Happy hunting in the fall!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Whatever happened to religious freedom? Some religions worship on Saturdays even though it sounds like a war outside on Saturday mornings. If we are going to restrict Sunday hunting due to the impacts on people attending church services, why not add Saturday as well? Or are we just worried about our own personal beliefs and no one else's?
I say keep religion out of the discussion, as people of different faiths may practice their personal spiritual beliefs on any day of the week.
Your right, regardless of how anyone feels, with seperation of church and state laws should not be influenced by religion.
I am a Christian, but do not believe the decision to allow hunting on Sunday should have anything to do with church. We are supposed to be a free country and able to make our own personal decisions in that regards. Key word was "supposed" because I feel like our nation that was once so great is taking a fast approach to the bottom of the pile and in all honesty think our religion (or lack there of) has everything to do with it. In saying that, I just want to add God BLESS AMERICA!

Oh, almost forgot! No golf on Sunday either! And no beer drink'n...and that includes on private property too.
