Idaho House Sends Right to Hunt and Fish Amendment to the Senate

Thursday, March 22, 2012

Today, the Idaho House of Representatives voted 63 to 4 to pass House Joint Resolution 2a, a much-needed constitutional amendment that would provide meaningful protections against anti-hunting activists who seek to ban all hunting in America.  HJR 2a will now go to the Senate where it must receive a two-thirds majority before going on the ballot. 

The NRA has been working with state House and Senate leadership to produce a robust constitutional amendment.  Thanks to their efforts, HJR 2a contains most of the core tenets of the NRA’s model Right to Hunt language that have been developed over recent years. 

For instance, HJR 2a, introduced by the House Ways and Means Committee, would guarantee the rights of Idahoans to hunt, fish, and harvest wildlife “by the use of traditional methods.”  This would eliminate any opportunities for well-funded animal rights activists to ban the use of certain methods like archery, tackle or dogs for hunting.  In other jurisdictions, these radical groups have sought to ban these “cruel” and “unsporting” methods, and HJR 2a will help to ensure they do not succeed in Idaho.

In addition, HJR 2a specifies that hunting, fishing and harvesting of wildlife shall be used as a “preferred means” of managing and controlling wildlife. This provision would ensure that sportsmen will continue to be used as the state’s responsible game managers instead of the taxpayer-funded sharpshooters and unproven, expensive wildlife contraception schemes employed in other jurisdictions.

Please contact your state Senator TODAY and respectfully urge him or her to support HJR 2a.  To find their contact information please click here.
