Right to Hunt Succeeds in Indiana, Kansas

By overwhelming margins—more than 80 percent in Kansas, and just under 80 percent in Indiana—voters approved amendments to their respective state's constitution that will guarantee the right to hunt, fish, and harvest wildlife, protecting this rich heritage for future generations. Hunting and fishing are deeply rooted in both states' cultures, and they have a major economic impact. Indiana's almost 400,000 hunters and 800,000 anglers spend close to $1 billion annually and support more than 14,000 jobs. Kansas' nearly 300,000 hunters and 400,000 anglers spend $630 million annually and support approximately 10,000 jobs. There are now 21 states that have constitutionally protected the right to hunt and fish.
