    Not a question but an FYI. For any PA hunters that read the Washington Post article on the Fed Judge throwing out the suit to lift the Sunday hunting ban, there's a critical error in the article that could get you in a lot of trouble. The article lists current exceptions to the ban such as coyote, but also lists "hunting on a non-commercial private property." Having never seen that in the guidelines or the State Code, I reached out to the PGC. Who helpfully pointed out that it is correct according to the state code for non-commercial game facilities holding so permitted, and attached the portion of code. Big oversight in the print of the article.

    Thanks for asking Joseph,
    This only applies to regulated shooting grounds. I have included the section of the Game and Wildlife Code below.

          Check out the story I linked. 4 years later and there's been no change.
