[va-bird] Sunday Hunting Bill

Greetings, 
Not sure if it made it to this listserv, but there was a movement to permit 
hunting on Sundays in Virginia.  I just received and email from my 
state 
Senator, Edd Houck, informing me that "both Sunday hunting bills failed in 
committee."

If what has gone on in Maryland is any indication, this will not be the only 
time this issue will come up.  Those of us that enjoy birding refuges 
and 
wildlife management areas on Sundays in winter will have to stay on top of 
this thing.  One of my biggest concerns is the Christmas Bird 
Counts.  
Some would be difficult to conduct if we didn't have a day where we weren't 
in the woods with hunters. 

Cheers,

Todd
