From this story in the Minot Daily News:
_North Dakota voters decided the fate of one of the most emotionally charged issues in recent state history Tuesday whether or not to ban "high fence hunting." With nearly 80 percent of the votes counted by 10:30 p.m. Tuesday night on statewide initiated Measure No. 2, "no" prevailed over "yes" 57 percent to 43 percent. That percentage mirrored a trend that became more and more evident as returns were posted throughout election evening.
_The "no" vote killed a prospective change to the North Dakota Century Code that would have banned the "killing or attempted killing of privately-owned big game species or exotic mammals confined in or released from any man-made enclosure designed to prevent escape." There are 12 high fence hunting operations in North Dakota and about 80 elk and deer producers, the majority of which do not allow hunting. Those opposed to Measure No. 2 claimed the real issue was property rights, that a landowner should be able to decide whether or not to raise traditional game animals and allow shooters to harvest them.
