Thanks to many in the Sportsmen's community who provided testimony, active contact with legislators, and sportsmen supportive legislators, the bill 

H.B. No. 6034 AN ACT AUTHORIZING BOW AND ARROW HUNTING ON CERTAIN PRIVATE PROPERTY ON SUNDAYS. "To authorize Sunday hunting of deer with bow and arrow on private property provided such property is in a deer management zone and such hunting is done in accordance with certain wildlife management principles" PASSED on votes in the House 113 to 32 and in the Senate 28-8.

Extraordinary legislative support was provided (they carried the ball) by Representative Craig Minor (R) 66th District -- Bethlehem, Litchfield, Morris, Warren and Woodbury and Senator Cathy Osten (D) 19th District (Columbia, Franklin, Hebron, Lebanon, Ledyard, Lisbon, Marlborough, Montville, Norwich and Sprague). Also Senator Bob Duff (D) Norwalk & Darien, Senate Majority Leader and House Majority Leader Joe Aresimowicz (D) 30th  District -Southington, Berlin for calling the bill and their voting support. 

Of particularly notewothy support and involvement from sportsmen were Ed Parker (retired Chief of Natural Resources.DEP), Mike Ose, (Chairman, Conservation Advisory Council DEEP), Vin Ringrose (previous long time chair of the Fishing Advisory Council DEEP), Anna Kopperud (NRA Liaison CT) and the many clubs/organizations who urged their members to communicate with legislators. Thank you all for a job well done!

We urge all sportsmen to communicate with their legislators who supported the bill and thank them. (House vote;  Senate vote). How to find your Legislators

Follow Up: Not unexpected, The Humane Society In Particular Is About To Launch A Last Ditch Campaign Aimed At the Governor's Office (See Action by the Governor  P184). If The Governor Does Not Hear From Us He Will Hear Only From Them! Although the Governor has been actively supportive of the bill lobbing the Senate over the past few years (When Senator Williams was President Pro Tem), pubic ally announced his support during the 2014 reelection campaign, and our lobbying of his staff members who voiced his continued support, It is imperative you communicate your appreciation for his previous support and politely request he sign the bill.

Again, Thanks to all who participated.
