Personally, I'd rather that no hunting be allowed on Sunday, period. (Bow,muzzle, rifle or otherwise). I'd rather spend my time with family, in church, away from work. The Bible speaks of God resting, giving us a day to rest, and speaks of even us giving land a year of rest after so many years of farming it. I think wildlife needs the rest as well. As for work, my father-in-law always said: 'If you can't make it in six days, you won't make it in seven'.
Now, I understand that some people work 6 or 7 days a week, and sometimes the only day available is Sunday. Maybe you don't have family to be with. Maybe you don't believe what the Bible says, or interpret it differently than I do. And I understand, completely. I'm not judging. I'm just stating where I stand on it - for myself. Hey, I grew up in a home where we didn't even go to a store or restaurant on Sunday!
I like to be able to take my kids out on the farm on Sundays to look around. I'd feel that it was off-limits 7 days/week if there were hunters on it.
If it were allowed, I might be tempted to go out as well, leaving my wife with the little ones yet another day!
