    All these Blue Laws, current and past (no liquor sales on Sunday, no movies on Sunday, etc) have their root in religion.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_law
    Blue laws, also known as Sunday laws, are laws designed to restrict or ban some or all Sunday activities for religious reasons, particularly to promote the observance of a day of worship or rest. Blue laws may also restrict shopping or ban sale of certain items on specific days, most often on Sundays in the western world. Blue laws are enforced in parts of the United States and Canada as well as some European countries, particularly in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and Norway, keeping most stores closed on Sundays.

    I have no issue with a business owner setting his hours of operation.

    I have a big big big issue with the government making policy decisions based on days of the week.

    In principal I understand this line of thinking. In reality though I'm thankful for it, as it is a MAJOR pressure day that is off the table and helps the overall waterfowling experience.

    For those of us 7-330 mon-fri guys I'd rather hunt educated tough birds two days a week than easy birds one day a week.its easy to be against this when you aren't stuck only getting to hunt satardays because of your occupation or family obligation

    I have enjoyed many a Sunday in the woods since ban was lifted here and it's been a good thing. I personally haven't seen a negative other than I don't get a day of rest. Being able to hunt the weather is one of the biggest factors in a successful bird hunt IMHO and having that extra weekend day helps catch those days.
