From this story on kentucky.com: _Voters overwhelmingly approved an amendment that the General Assembly passed in 2011 as a pre-emptive strike against anyone who would challenge Kentuckians' right to "harvest wildlife." At present, nobody is lobbying against hunting and fishing in Kentucky or legally challenging it. But somebody in the future might have, such as an animal-rights group, said the amendment's sponsor, Rep. Leslie Combs, D-Pikeville. Now they can't, Combs said.
Measures in Nebraska and Wyoming passed by similar margins. There are now some 17 states with constitutional amendments protecting hunting and fishing. Is it officially a trend? Do you expect to see more states add such amendments?
