Right To Hunt, Trap, And Fish Ballot Measures Pass With Landslide Victories


For Immediate Release: November 9, 2012

Washington, D.C. – Safari Club International (SCI) congratulates the sportsmen and women of Idaho, Nebraska, and Kentucky for ratifying their rights to hunt, trap, and fish. With over 73% of residents voting “yes” in each of the aforementioned states, sportsmen and women in Idaho, Nebraska, and Kentucky have protected our sporting and outdoor traditions for generations to come.

“Hunters, trappers and anglers have always been, and will remain the backbone of wildlife conservation in North America,” said SCI President John Whipple. “SCI is extremely proud of our chapters and members in Idaho, Nebraska, and Kentucky who spearheaded the grassroots efforts to ratify these important constitutional amendments.”

The new constitutional amendments provide several protections for hunting, trapping, and fishing including the use of traditional methods, preservation of these activities by law, and the establishment of these activities as preferred methods of wildlife management.

SCI’s success is based in the active engagement of its members on critical public policy issues impacting hunters and their rights. Safari Club International welcomes all who share these goals to be part of the dialogue by contacting SCI’s Washington, D.C. office at media@safariclub.org

SCI is the only pro-hunting organization with an office in Washington, DC that has full time policy experts, in-house legal counsel and certified wildlife biologists on staff dedicated to the protection of hunting for SCI members and hunters everywhere. SCI’s Hunter Defense Fund supports the important work keeping hunters afield and promoting hunting worldwide.
