UT – HUNTING – With Amendment E, Utahns can preserve their outdoor heritage

Utah voters will have more at stake on Election Day than just voting for who will lead the country and the state for the next four years. Voters will have the chance to preserve Utah’s wild outdoors heritage in perpetuity. On the ballot this year, Utahns will be asked to approve Amendment E, which is a proposal to preserve a constitutional right to hunt and fish. By voting yes on Amendment E, Utah voters will preserve the state’s wild outdoors heritage. This will ensure that generations to come will enjoy the same awe, respect and value of the natural and renewable resources we enjoy today. Protecting the right to hunt and fish is not a new concept. Twenty-one states already have constitutional amendments guaranteeing their residents the right to hunt and fish. Voters approved all but one through ballot initiatives. Pennsylvania’s constitution drafted in 1776 includes the right to “fowl and hunt in seasonable times … and … to fish.” Vermont did the same in 1777. More recently, other states recognized the need to protect what was once commonly understood — that hunting and fishing are rights for all citizens. Wildlife belongs to all the people, and the use of that wildlife as a food source belongs to all the people. Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming all passed voter-approved amendments to their state constitutions. Alaska’s constitution preserves the right of common use for fish, wildlife and waters occurring in their natural state. Florida and New Hampshire have statutory protections for hunting and fishing. Utah should join this growing list of states and protect the right to hunt and fish.  [full article]
