Alabama: Hunting Opportunities Would be Extended with the Reauthorization of Forever Wild

Thursday, October 4, 2012

Vote “Yes” for Amendment 1 – the Forever Wild Land Trust 

If ratified by Alabama voters on November 6, the Forever Wild Land Trust would be reauthorized for a 20-year period.  Since its establishment by constitutional referendum in 1992, the Forever Wild Program has secured more than 227,000 acres with numerous opportunities being available for hunting.  Despite Alabama’s undeniable natural beauty, it still lags behind other southeastern states in the amount of accessible public conservation and hunting land.  The vast majority of funding for the Forever Wild Land Trust is generated by the interest earned from natural gas royalties, with no monies coming from the taxpayer.

Sportsmen have benefited immensely from this critical program, opening up tens of thousands of acres teeming with wildlife.  At a time when finding places to hunt is more and more difficult for many sportsmen, the acquisition of public hunting land is essential to the preservation of our hunting heritage.  More than 96% of the land is open to some form of public hunting, with specific language in the constitutional amendment designating that the lands acquired should provide for hunting opportunities.

By voting to protect the Forever Wild Land Trust and continue its funding for another 20 years, you can help ensure that residents and visitors to the state can continue to enjoy Alabama’s unique beauty and rich hunting heritage.

Vote “Yes” for Amendment 1 to ensure that future generations have the same opportunities to enjoy Alabama’s great outdoors.
