    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.
    Kindly,
    [email protected]

    Sec. 2303. Hunting on Sunday prohibited.

    (a) General rule.--Except as otherwise provided in this title, it is unlawful for any person to hunt for any furbearer or game on Sunday.

    (b) Construction of section.--This section shall not be construed to prohibit:

    (1) The training of dogs.

    (2) The participation in dog trials as provided for in this title.

    (3) The removal of lawfully taken game or wildlife from traps or the resetting of the traps on Sunday.

    (b.1) Exceptions.--Subsection (a) shall not apply to:

    (1) The hunting of foxes.

    (2) The hunting of coyotes.

    (3) Any hunting which occurs on noncommercial regulated hunting grounds holding a valid permit under section 2928(b)(2) (relating to regulated hunting grounds permits).

    (c) Penalty.--A violation of this section is a summary offense of the fifth degree.
