Nebraskans to Vote on Making Fishing and Hunting Rights Part of State Constitution

By Chad Love

Voters in the Cornhusker State will go to the polls this November to decide if the right to hunt and fish should be a part of their state constitution.

From this story on kearnethub.com
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.

According to the story, Amendment 2 would also make public hunting, fishing and harvesting of wildlife a “preferred means'' of managing and controlling wildlife.

blevenson, we do have the right to hunt and fish as part of the MN state constitution. You can find a list of all of the states that do with a quick google search.
