Thread: SB 464 - Hunting on Sunday
I've must of been asleep lately. Did this bill finally pass? If so, where can one find the language therein?
The Amendment is:
(SB464) AMENDMENT(S) PROPOSED BY THE SENATE
- 1. Line 23, substitute, after kill
- (i) any wild bird or wild animal, including any nuisance species, on Sunday within 250 yards of a place of worship or any accessory structure or facility thereof or (ii)
- Let's see if the dog hunters can screw this one up?
3) feral dogs/cats
4) starlings/grackles/English sparrows
5) non-migratory Canada geese/any Canada goose found on grounds of municipal parks, airports, golf courses
6) dog hunters found armed while trespassing
That ought to start to fill out the list.

Don't forget this bill:
HB 855 Nuisance species; definitionto include coyotes and feral swine.
Only change is to add coyotes and feral swine to this paragraph:
"Nuisance species" means blackbirds, coyotes, crows, cowbirds, feral swine, grackles, English sparrows, starlings, or those species designated as such by regulations of the Board, and those species found committing or about to commit depredation upon ornamental or shade trees, agricultural crops, wildlife, livestock or other property or when concentrated in numbers and manners as to constitute a health hazard or other nuisance. However, the term nuisance does not include (i) animals designated as endangered or threatened pursuant to §§ 29.1-563, 29.1-564, and 29.1-566, (ii) animals classified as game or fur-bearing animals, and (iii) those species protected by state or federal law.
Imagine this....You're an anti social old goat that likes his peace and quiet,not bothering anyone and expecting to not be bothered... and then out of nowhere, one of those brainless little twerps comes across your farm, tree top high, full throttle. Now imagine two or three of those idiots doing it.
Happens about every six weeks and no one ever seems to know who they belong to.
The Helicopters are better. They're slow enough that they avoid me I got video of them and found their Commander.
So....Military Pilots, Dog Hunters and Child Molesters....This ax handle's for you!
LOL, you guys crack me up. I guess Grumpy Old Men was a movie about Skid and Peter Nap.....
The Second Amendment is in place

this room needs to be packed. The chances of this bill getting a fair hearing are slim seeing how this is the same subcommittee that killed the house bills and is chaired by lee ware who has gone on record in the goochland gazette and the Richmond times dispatch as being opposed to this bill and a no vote if it gets to the house floor. our only recourse is to appeal to the members of the subcommittee to at least allow a fair hearing of the bill before the full committee. though i believe there is a reason this was assigned to this particular subcommittee.
Just to keep this in the OC category and to bump it, not all of us live near the beltway but haven't actively opposed some of the popular bills, we should have fought to the end.
It would be nice to see a few show up for this. It would help my ego for supporting parking lot bills that don't concern me!
This is what I wake up to and my parking lot:
I'd rather be in my woods thinking of God on Sunday....than in Church thinking about my woods!

Virginia: Sunday Hunting Tabled for Remainder
of 2012 Legislative Session
"Today, the state House Natural Resources Subcommittee tabled Senate Bill 464 for the rest of this current legislative session. SB 464, sponsored by state Senator Ralph Northam (D-6), would have allowed hunting on private land and public waterways on Sundays.
Currently, Virginia is one of only six states in the country that strictly bans hunting on Sunday. This prohibition threatens the very future of our hunting heritage by discouraging hunter recruitment and retention. In addition, this antiquated ban harms Virginia’s economy."
