Although it has been an activity conducted by humans since the beginning of time, hunting has been targeted for extinction by the well-funded animal “rights” extremists at the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).  They spend $120 million a year lobbying and litigating against hunting and science-based wildlife management.  Wayne Pacelle, the group's CEO, told the Bozeman Daily Chronicle, "Our goal is to get sport hunting in the same category as cock fighting and dog fighting.  Our opponents say hunting is a tradition.  We say traditions can change."  Whether sportsmen want to believe it or not, the threat is real and NRA is laying the groundwork of our defense against future attacks with meaningful constitutional amendments such as HCR 2008.

Hunters are America's true conservationists.  No other group contributes more in order to preserve and reestablish wildlife populations and their habitats.  It is time that hunting receives the highest form of protection available and that is what is provided in HCR 2008.  The emotional cries of the animal "rights" extremists cannot be allowed to dictate the future of Arizona's wildlife policies.

If passed and approved by the voters, HCR 2008 would make Arizona
one of nearly a dozen states with such a constitutional protection.
