Is it legal to hunt in the RM on Sundays yet? I know it was illegal a while back but can't find any info online

The by-law you are thinking about is the one in regards to the discharge of firearms on Sunday. The discharge of firearms is still prohibited. There is a link to the by-law on the RM's website.

If the question is: can you hunt on Sundays in the rm of Springfield the answer is yes. I've never heard of any by-law that says you cannot discharge a firearm on Sundays. To me that doesn't make sense, so you can shoot on Saturdays? But without a doubt you can bow hunt on sundays.

It clearly states on their website that shooting is prohibited on Sundays except for at designated shooting ranges. Bow hunting looks ok, but firearm hunting on Sunday would be a no go as far as I see if you actually discharge the firearm. Kinda screwy that it's legal to hunt Sundays but against the rm bi law to discharge a firearm on Sundays, but I shake my head at lots of rules and regulations.

That's how we understand it to work in Springfield. A reminder that it is a municipal by-law not provincial regulation. Thanks Jamie.
