Insofar as organization goes, the push for adding a right to hunt and fish to Tennessee's constitution is unopposed within the state. Supporters include virtually all state legislators, both the Democratic and Republican gubernatorial nominees and a host of organizations and individuals with ties to hunting and fishing interests, reported to annually generate $2.4 billion in economic activity within the state. But there's no guarantee that the proposed state constitutional amendment will be approved, given that those who skip the issue on the Nov. 2 statewide ballot while voting in the governor's race will effectively be voting no. Only those affirmatively voting "yes" for the amendment matter.
