Indiana: Support Your Right To Hunt And Fish

posted on October 6, 2016

Indiana hunters and anglers should start spreading the word now about the importance of voting “Yes” on NRA-supported Question 1 on Election Day, Nov. 8.

Question 1 is an amendment to the Indiana Constitution guaranteeing the right to hunt, fish, and harvest wildlife as an individual right. Ballot language for Question 1 was created by Senate Bill 57, which passed the House of Representatives with a 47-to-7 vote and the Senate with a 95-to-1 vote. Gov. Mike Pence signed the measure on March 21.

Hunting and fishing are integral parts of the culture and economy of Indiana, which has more than 450 natural lakes and 21,000 miles of fishable streams and is one of the top 10 deer hunting states in the country. Hunting and fishing in the state bring in $923 million annually in revenue and support 14,058 jobs.

Those who care about this legacy should tell everyone they know about the importance of the initiative between now and Election Day.
