6 Reasons for Texans to Vote Yes on Proposition 6 this November!

Friday, October 16, 2015

This November, Texans will have the opportunity to vote on a constitutional amendment to create permanent protections for sportsmen and conservation in Texas. Voting "YES" on Proposition 6 will protect the Lone Star State's outdoor heritage for future generations of Texas hunters and anglers. Here are just 6 reasons why all Texans need to vote YES on Prop 6 this November to protect wildlife and promote conservation efforts that sportsmen have spearheaded for generations.

  1. Hunting and fishing are an essential part of Texas’ (and America’s) cultural fabric.


    Approval of Prop 6 will protect future generations of Texas hunters and anglers from extremists who will dedicate themselves to eliminating these treasured outdoor traditions in the Lone Star State!

  2. The freedom to hunt, fish and harvest wildlife in Texas currently has no constitutional protection.


    The freedom to hunt and fish is a fundamental right that people often take for granted; putting it in the Texas Constitution is the best way for Texans to ensure that future generations have the opportunity to enjoy this rich, outdoor heritage.
     
  3. Across the country, hunting and fishing are under attack like never before.


    Well-funded, national anti-hunting groups that seek to ban all hunting, trapping and fishing are more active now than ever before on the state and local levels. 
     
  4. Prop 6 would guarantee that future wildlife conservation and management decisions are based on sound science.


    Prop 6 would ensure that wildlife conservation and management decisions continue to be based on sound science in order to preserve Texas' hunting heritage for generations to come and to protect it against future attacks based on misguided emotions.
     
  5. Hunting and fishing are economically beneficial to Texas.


    According to the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, the Lone Star State's hunters and anglers spend $4.1 billion annually and support 65,993 jobs.
     
  6. Currently, 18 states have Right to Hunt and Fish amendments in their constitutions.


    These constitutional safeguards are a pro-active way to defend America’s rich, outdoor heritage from radical anti-hunting and anti-fishing groups.
