That sucks.
"Predators are either active & feeding, semi-active & callable, or utterly inactive & then practically speaking, no call is needed; we're just taking our guns for a walk. We can & should get used to it, & follow their leed cuz they just ain't eager nor apt to follow our’s any time soon!

Update I've should have posted awhile ago...

I've been put down by two legislators on our PPHA proposal about Sunday hunting on all furbearers.
Both opposed Sunday hunting. One legislator seem to didn't want to touch or talk 'Sunday Hunting'.
I gave my reasoning and presented what I thought was an educated pitch.
Pointed out we could trap all furbearers on Sunday, hunt Crows, Coyote & Fox on Sunday. I stressed this isn't about Deer hunting, but Predator hunting. Worked in controlling disease. I noted that we had support of PCG Furbearer Biologists Matt Lavello and Tom Hardisky.
I couldn't get a sponsor for the bill. A defeat that is hard to take for me.
Quattro had the same results.
