Indiana Voters Will Consider Right To Hunt And Fish

posted on March 31, 2016

Hoosier State voters will have an opportunity this November to make Indiana the 20th state with constitutional protection of the right to hunt and fish. Republican Gov. Mike Pence has approved language that will appear as Question 1 on the Nov. 8 ballot. If passed, it would amend the Indiana Constitution to guarantee an individual right to hunt, fish and harvest wildlife, ensuring that wildlife management issues are settled through sound science rather than the emotional appeals of anti-hunting groups. 

“Voting for ‘Question 1’ on the November ballot will protect those cherished traditions in the Hoosier State from efforts by well-funded national extremist groups to ban hunting,” said NRA-ILA’s Chris W. Cox.

In other good news for Indiana hunters, Gov. Pence also signed legislation expanding deer hunting opportunities in the state by directing the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to establish a rifle season for deer hunting in the state.
