Nebraskans have hunted, fished and trapped since frontier territorial days.
Hunting and fishing are part of the state’s legacy of conservation and stewardship of the natural heritage. And they are big business. Hunters and anglers spent $709.1 million on trips, equipment and other related expenditures in Nebraska last year.
Now voters will be asked on Election Day whether to enshrine a right “to hunt, to fish and to harvest wildlife” in the Nebraska Constitution.
