I would post my land

To the Editor;

I respectfully disagree with Doug Tibbetts’ Sunday hunting OpEd of March 22. His argument of having only one day a week to hunt also applies to non-hunters having only one day to enjoy the woods, fields, even just being out, especially if their area is surrounded by woods. I find it hard to believe that all working hunters end up with only Sunday available. My hunting family and friends try to schedule some of their accrued time off for hunting season. Question: will hunting license prices increase? If not, how does Sunday hunting have “a statewide financial impact”?

Landowners granting permission is great if the owner is known, but not all owners are obvious. Should Sunday hunting become available and I still owned hunting area land, I would post it and no one could hunt there anytime. What would people gain?
