[Insert Hunting Metaphor Here]

An article on Sunday hunting appears today in all three Blethen newspapers. The headlines describe Baldacci's proposal as alternately "dead," "misfired," or "shot down." Here's the gist of it:
Sunday hunting, at least as proposed by Gov. John Baldacci, is dead, legislators and others said Wednesday.

But a compromise is in the works [...]

One part is to allow Sunday hunting in the state's northwest, which Smith described as north of Moosehead Lake.

The second part is to allow hunters to hunt on their own land and invite guests, regardless of where they live [...]

Legislators who serve on the IF&W committee are split on Sunday hunting in general. Many are opposed to it. Some are willing to consider a compromise -- but at least one is not.
