Eight States Consider “Right to Hunt and Fish” Amendments

Amendments that make hunting and fishing a protected right are widely supported by sportsmen and many conservation groups
Check it out:

Some states consider hunting and fishing a privilege, while others consider it a constitutional right. Currently 17 states guarantee these rights with amendments to their state constitutions—with a handful having similar, yet weaker provisions—and now eight more are considering joining that list. Mississippi is leading the way with the issue finally finding its way onto this year’s November ballot, while Indiana’s bill passed its state Senate 43-4 last month.

According to the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), the states considering a constitutional right to hunt and fish are:

Alabama
Indiana
Michigan
Missouri
New Jersey
New York
Pennsylvania
West Virginia
