Constitutional Amendment
Explanatory statement.  This amendment is to preserve constitutionally the right of the public to hunt, fish and trap wildlife subject to reasonable laws and regulations.  The right of the public to hunt, fish and trap shall not modify any provision of common law or statutes relating to treaspass, eminent domain or any other private property rights.
A vote for this proposition would constitutionally preserve the right of the public to hunt, fish and trap wildlife that has traditionally been taken by hunters, trappers and anglers.  This public right is subject to state laws and rules and regulations regarding the management of wildlife and does not change or diminish common law or statutory rights relating to trespass, eminent domain or private property.

A vote against this proposition would provide for no constitutional right of the public to hunt, fish and trap wildlife.  It would maintain existing state laws and rules and regulations governing hunting, fishing and trapping wildlife.

Shall the following be adopted?

§21. Right of public to hunt, fish and trap wildlife.  The people have the right to hunt, fish and trap, including by the use of traditional methods, subject to reasonable laws and regulations that promote wildlife conservation and management and that preserve the future of hunting and fishing.  Public hunting and fishing shall be a preferred means of managing and controlling wildlife.  This section shall not be construed to modify any provision of law relating to treaspass, property rights or water resources.
