Fishing and Hunting as a State Right
Should the right to hunt and fish be part of a state's Constitution? We in Florida believe so. We should follow suit.
This is one of many pieces written in North Carolina about the movement (now passed) to make fishing and hunting rights part of the State's constitution. We would love your opinion on this and perhaps talk to our legistatures about doing the same here in the Sunshine State.
From the Herald Sun:
Hunting and fishing are cherished North Carolina traditions that, when paired with science, are an integral part of wildlife management and conservation.
Unfortunately, misguided extremists have been trying for decades to ban hunting through incremental steps, often unnoticed by the public, or through outright bans on certain species. That is why the National Rifle Association is supporting the statewide ballot initiative this November that would amend the North Carolina Constitution to protect the right to hunt and fish. This amendment will guarantee that the outdoor sporting traditions North Carolinians’ enjoy will be preserved for future generations.
