Kentucky: Important Right to Hunt and Fish Amendment Needs Your Vote on November 6

Friday, October 12, 2012

You have the opportunity on November 6 to enshrine hunting and fishing for current and future generations in Kentucky by voting YES on the Constitutional Amendment.

The National Rifle Association has been working throughout the country to adopt meaningful state Right to Hunt and Fish constitutional amendments for good reason.  We see what the well-funded “animal rights” extremist groups are doing to erode our sporting heritage in countless states.  To assume the attacks will never come to Kentucky is naïve. 

Voter ratification of this constitutional amendment will preserve Kentucky’s rich hunting and fishing heritage for future generations.  In addition, it specifies that hunting, fishing and harvesting of wildlife shall be used as a preferred means of managing and controlling wildlife. This ensures that sportsmen will continue to act as the state’s responsible game managers instead of the taxpayer-funded sharpshooters and unproven, expensive wildlife contraception schemes employed in other jurisdictions. 

This constitutional amendment recognizes hunting, fishing and harvesting of wildlife as constitutional rights. These rights are subject only to laws and rules that have the purpose of “wildlife conservation and management and preserving the future of hunting and fishing.”  Specifically, it prohibits regulations that would ban the use of “traditional methods” such as bow hunting or the sustainable taking of wildlife such as deer, elk and doves.  It will protect the citizens’ hunting heritage from attacks initiated by well-funded anti-hunting extremists who have assailed sportsmen throughout the country in recent years.

The time is NOW to protect Kentucky’s proud hunting and fishing heritage for generations to come.  Kentucky cannot wait for a crisis to occur or until the anti-hunting forces gain more power.

Vote YES on November 6 for the Constitutional Amendment.  For more information about this please click here.
