HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- A bill allowing hunting on Sundays with some restrictions has passed the General Assembly.
Dubby Carr, the owner of Dubby's Fishing and Hunting Store, said after researching the possible change, he found that allowing another day of hunting could bring in millions of dollars for Virginia businesses.
Carr says 43 states currently allow Sunday hunting.
This bill does prohibit deer hunting if you are using dogs or hunting within 200 yards of a place of worship.
Carr says people who work five or six days a week will now have a chance to hunt.
"Those people will be be able to hunt now. They'll buy a license, buy stuff to go hunting with and I just think it will be a good," said Carr.
Under the bill, a person can hunt wild birds and other animals if they have permission to be on a property.
