Alabama: Right to Hunt and Fish Legislation to be Considered in House Committee Tomorrow

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

Tomorrow, the House Agriculture and Forestry Committee will consider House Bill 322.  Sponsored by state Representative Mark Tuggle (R-81), HB 322 would guarantee the right to hunt, fish and harvest wildlife in Alabama.  This committee meeting will be held at 2:30 p.m., in Room 410 of the Alabama Statehouse.  Please contact members of this House committee immediately and respectfully urge them to support House Bill 322.

By enshrining and enhancing this state constitutional right, Alabama would keep the existing fishing and hunting structure in place while protecting future generations of sportsmen from attacks initiated by well-funded anti-hunting extremists.  Specifically, HB 322 would promote wildlife conservation and management.  In addition, it specifies that hunting, fishing and harvesting of wildlife shall be used as the preferred means of managing and controlling wildlife.  This proposed amendment to the Alabama Constitution would ensure that sportsmen will continue to be used as Alabama’s responsible game managers instead of the taxpayer-funded sharpshooters and unproven, expensive wildlife contraception schemes employed in other jurisdictions.

Using the contact information provided below, please contact members of the House Agriculture and Forestry Committee before tomorrow’s hearing and respectfully urge them to SUPPORT your right to hunt and fish by voting “YES” on HB 322.
