Veterans receive reduced or free hunting and fishing licenses

An email from Governor Youngkin confirms that hunting and fishing licenses will be issued at reduced rates or no cost for partially or permanently disabled veterans in a bill recently signed.

The Governor also signed a bill that will allow hunting on Sundays starting July 1.

Sunday hunting is still prohibited within 200 yards of any house of worship.

The National Rifle Association (NRA)  observed that preservation of state public hunting land is partially funded by hunting license fees and firearms, ammunition and archery equipment.

The ability to hunt on Sundays helps to continue the hunting tradition on both Saturdays and Sundays during an otherwise busy week according to the NRA.
