Representatives voted overwhelmingly Monday to waive trespassing violations for unarmed people who enter posted property solely to retrieve a hunting dog, to let local police help the Game Commission enforce trespassing rules and to push back the law's effective date by three months.
Leaders say a final vote to send it back to the Senate is likely to occur Tuesday.
The bill would allow Sunday hunting one day during rifle deer season, one during statewide archery deer season and a third day the Game Commission would select.
It also would make it easier for wardens to enforce the anti-trespassing law.
