Your action is needed to support the Landowner Hunting Rights Bill - Senate Bill 345


Time is limited in the 2017 legislative session and SB 345 the Landowner Hunting Rights Bill (Sunday Hunting) is now at the last stopping point before being voted into law by the full House.  We need you to begin calling each member of the House Judiciary committee and politely ask them to bring this bill to a vote and support its passage.  This bill will return the rights of individual property owners to decide what is permissible on their own land.  It is also estimated the addition of one hunting day a week during the hunting season will create over 2,000 jobs with a total economic impact exceeding $155 million annually.



You can find the members of the House Judiciary committee by clicking this link:

You may not live in one of these counties, but your fellow sportsmen do and they need our help to make this law apply state-wide.

If you do live in one of these counties you should be sure to contact your specific Delegate and let them understand your desire for the passage of this bill.

Please make a call to as many of these members as possible.  If you get voice mail, leave your name, county you live in and your phone number along with a message to support Senate Bill 345 - the Landowner Hunting Rights Bill!

Thank you,


Justin Hettick
