This Constitutional Amendment will protect our hunting heritage from attacks initiated by well-funded anti-hunting activists who have assailed sportsmen throughout the country in recent years. In addition, it specifies that wildlife management decisions will be based on sound science, not the emotions of animal “rights” extremists. Just look at the words of Wayne Pacelle, President of the most powerful animal “rights” interest group in the country, the Humane Society of the United States:
“Our opponents say hunting is a tradition. We say traditions can change.”
- Bozeman Daily Chronicle
“If we could shut down all sport hunting in a moment, we would.”
- Associated Press
All Kentuckians need to vote YES on this constitutional amendment. This protection is essential to protect wildlife and promote conservation; efforts that sportsmen have spearheaded for generations. Don’t let animal “rights” radicals invade Kentucky and destroy the state’s diverse and flourishing wildlife populations!
THE FUTURE OF OUR HUNTING HERITAGE DEPENDS ON YOUR VOTE!
Your vote will help to create permanent protections for sportsmen and conservation in Kentucky. The measure would add the following language to the Kentucky Constitution, specifying:
The citizens of Kentucky have the personal right to hunt, fish, and harvest wildlife, using traditional methods, subject only to statutes enacted by the Legislature, and to administrative regulations adopted by the designated state agency to promote wildlife conservation and management and to 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 trespass, property rights, or the regulation of commercial activities.
