ACTION NEEDED AGAIN from our Members and enthusiasts alike! ESPECIALLY BALTO, HOWARD AND PG FOLKS!! ANOTHER new Sunday hunting Bill, SB390, has been proposed that will allow the Department of Natural Resources to permit a person to hunt deer on virtually all Sundays during the open seasons on private property and public land that is designated for Sunday Hunting by the Department. THIS MEANS THAT SUNDAY HUNTING WILL NOW BE ALLOWED EVEN IN BALTIMORE, HOWARD AND PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTIES, WHERE IT HAS NEVER BEEN ALLOWED BEFORE. ADDITIONAL SUNDAYS COULD BE ADDED IN OTHER COUNTIES. You can read the text of the bill here: http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/2019RS/bills/sb/sb0390f.pdf. Language in bold type is what is being added to current law. Language in brackets is what is being deleted or changed elsewhere in the bill. This is a STATEWIDE bill that will include all the counties in the state. The hearing on this bill is scheduled for next Tuesday, 2/19 at 1pm in Annapolis. If you would like to go and testify or even if you just want to attend to show your interest, please let us know. The number of attendees at a hearing, even if they don’t speak, really does have an impact on the Committee members, especially if attendees are asked to stand to indicate their support of or opposition to a bill. BUT EVEN IF YOU CAN’T COME TO ANNAPOLIS, YOU CAN STILL MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD! CONTACT THE LEGISLATORS BELOW TODAY! Some tips - Keep your comments short (some information/talking points are below), and make sure you indicate if you are a constituent of the legislator you are contacting (although since this is a statewide bill, you should still contact all members of the committee, even those of whom you are not a constituent). Some comments you might consider making in your contact: Tell them if your activities or schedules are affected by the desire to avoid encountering hunters, and that you would like one day per week preserved for other users of the outdoors: trail riders (which are the largest group among Maryland riders), hikers, bird watchers, dog walkers, etc. Share with them the info that shows what an important contribution horses and horse people make to Maryland’s economy (data sheet attached - feel free to share the data sheet with lawmakers and their staffs) Don’t forget to tell them if you are in their district!

My first hunt was with Carrollton when I was around that age. I remember it so clearly - it was a wonderful day and all the members were so welcoming and helpful. <3

How very cool! She had such a grand time. And our little old man pony enjoyed every moment!

Bet it wasn’t the pony’s first fox hunt! Ride on.

Thanks so much!!!It was a lovely day. I so enjoyed having Rebecca out and bringing her home to Heidi Lippy Sprinkle and Mark Sprinkle.

Fabulous, congratulations and happy hunting

What a special pony he is and how great that he was your first ride!!

Great Picture
