Your vote to ratify Question 1 will create permanent protections for sportsmen and conservation in Kansas. This amendment will protect the Sunflower State’s outdoor heritage for future generations of Kansas hunters and anglers.
Question 1 would add the following language to the Kansas Constitution:
The people have the right to hunt, fish and trap, including by the use of traditional methods, subject to reasonable laws and regulations that promote wildlife conservation and management and that preserve the future of hunting and fishing. Public hunting and fishing shall be a preferred means of managing and controlling wildlife. This section shall not be construed to modify any provision of law relating to trespass, property rights or water resources.
All Kansans 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 Kansas and destroy the state's diverse and flourishing wildlife populations!
The proposed Kansas Right to Hunt, Fish and Trap Constitiutional Amendment, Question 1 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.
Just look at the radical words of the powerful anti-hunting Humane Society of the United States (HSUS):
“Our opponents say hunting is a tradition. We say traditions can change.” (Bozeman Daily Chronicle)
“If we could shut down all sport hunting in a moment, we would.” (Associated Press)
“Doves are not overpopulated, and hunting them doesn't feed anyoneor help manage wildlife.” (HSUS.COM)
“There is simply no good reason to shoot a dove.” (HSUS.COM)
In 2010, PETA Sent a letter to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Calling for the disbandment of the school's fishing club.
"A respected university like UTC should not exploit itself to cruelty to animals, fishing is a blood sport.” (Chattanooga WRCB)
