The Calhoun Commission voted unanimously to place Sunday hunting on the May ballot, after receiving several petitions and calls regarding the issue.

Calhoun voters will decide whether to continue Sunday hunting. The issue was originally designated as county option by the West Virginia legislature, but that body said they made a mistake opening up hunting in all 55 counties because of loose wording in the bill.

Adjoining Roane County is placing the Sunday hunting issue on the ballot, along with a dozen or more other counties announcing likewise.

The Gilmer County Commission, according to newspaper accounts, has gone on record against putting the Sunday hunting issue on the ballot, stating the legislature should be responsible to correct the problem for uniformity. An opponent of Sunday hunting told the Gilmer Commission that was highly unlikely.

Calhoun County Clerk Richard Kirby said the cost of placing the issue on the ballot is negligible.
