Berkeley County Council Puts Sunday Hunting on 2016 Ballot

Martinsburg Berkeley County Convention and Visitors Bureau

Berkeley County voters will decide next year whether to allow hunting on Sunday on private land in the county.

Multiple media outlets report that the Berkeley County Council voted last week to put the issue on the November 2016 general election ballot.

A 2001 state law allows each county to decide whether to allow hunting on Sunday. Berkeley County voters rejected the proposal in 2002.

Sunday hunting currently is allowed in 21 counties and prohibited in 34 counties.
