Tell your representatives to vote against Sunday hunting

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

Yes, Sunday hunting has once again been introduced.

HB 5080 would allow bowhunting on private property, not requiring neighbors to notify anyone of their intent. Since bowhunting season begins in mid-September, I feel that it is my right and everyone else’s who enjoys the outdoors with their family, friends and pets to enjoy at least one day a week without having to wonder if anyone is hunting next door.

Only 1% of Connecticut’s population hunts, yet the 99% majority’s wishes may be ignored due to pressure from the hunting lobby and the DEEP. Six days of bowhunting is enough in this state. It is my right and yours not to have to worry about Sundays, too.

Every landowner who values their privacy and other rights needs to contact their state representative and senator immediately and tell them to vote no on any expansion of hunting on Sunday, HB 5080.

Your representatives and senators, see here: Cga.ct.gov/asp/menu/CGAFindLeg.asp and please contact state Sen. Ed Meyer, co-chair of the Environment Committee, at Senatedems.ct.gov/Meyer-mailform.php.

Land ownership and peace and quiet are rights, while hunting is a privilege.
