A 2002 law authorized Sunday hunting on private land statewide if voters in each county approved the change on ballot measures. Shortly thereafter, 41 counties acted to ban Sunday hunting. In 2014, a grassroots effort put the question before voters in seven counties for the first time in more than a decade and obtained approval for Sunday hunting on private property in five counties. As of November 6, 2014, twenty two (22) counties have approved by way of local ballot measure to allow hunting on Sunday on private land.
