Your vote to ratify Proposition 6 will create permanent protections for sportsmen and conservation in Texas. It will protect the Lone Star State's outdoor heritage for future generations of Texas hunters and anglers.
Proposition 6 will protect the Lone Star State's outdoor heritage for future generations of Texas hunters and anglers. Voting YES on this proposition would add the following language to the Texas Constitution:
The people have the right to hunt, fish, and harvest wildlife, including by the use of traditional methods, subject to laws or regulations to conserve and manage wildlife and preserve the future of hunting and fishing. Hunting and fishing are preferred methods of managing and controlling wildlife. This section does not affect any provision of law relating to trespass, property rights, or eminent domain. This section does not affect the power of the legislature to authorize a municipality to regulate the discharge of a weapon in a populated area in the interest of public safety.
All Texans need to vote YES on this constitutional safeguard to protect wildlife and promote conservation efforts that sportsmen have spearheaded for generations. Don't let anti-hunting, extremist organizations invade Texas and destroy the state's diverse and flourishing wildlife populations!
The Texas Constitutional Right to Hunt and Fish, Proposition 6 on the November ballot, will protect our outdoor traditions from attacks initiated by well-funded, national anti-hunting groups that have assailed sportsmen throughout the country in recent years. In addition, it ensures that wildlife and conservation management decisions will be based on sound science, not the misguided emotions of anti-hunting and anti-fishing extremists.
