From this story on Ozarksfirst.com:
For many Arkansans, hunting is a way of life, and voters decided to make it a constitutionally protected right in Tuesday's election. The amendment makes hunting, fishing, trapping, and harvesting wildlife a right. Supporters say it was proposed in response to fears - which were echoed nationally - that animal rights groups are trying to restrict hunting in other states. And some of those animal rights groups say hunting doesn't deserve constitutional protection, while others say, it's just not necessary.
