(Harrisburg) -- A Lancaster County-based hunters' group has asked a federal judge to throw out Pennsylvania's long-standing ban on Sunday hunting.
Hunters United for Sunday Hunting filed suit against the Pennsylvania Game Commission, the agency that enforces the state's game code.
The organization says the state's ban on most types of hunting on Sunday is unconstitutional. The group contends the ban costs hunters an "irreparable loss" of time in the field.
Legislation that would have permitted hunting on Sundays died two years ago amid opposition from the state Farm Bureau. It has said many people support preserving one day a week when people can be outside without running into hunters or hearing gunfire.
