Texas Voters Critical to Save Hunting

vote-yes-bgSCI wants to remind Texans to vote YES on Proposition 6 next Tuesday, November 3. This Proposition will permanently protect your right to hunt, fish and harvest wildlife in the Lone Star State. It will preserve Texas’ hunting and fishing heritage for generations to come.

YES vote on Proposition 6 will make Texas the 19th state to establish a constitutional right to hunt and fish. Passing it, however, won’t be easy. Texans are in a battle to protect their right to hunt and all hunters need to come together.

SCI has joined the leaders from major sportsmen’s organizations including, the NRA, and Dallas and Houston Safari Clubs to form a Political Action Committee — Texans United for Hunting and Fishing Rights (TUHFR).  TUHFR’s goal is to raise awareness for Proposition 6 and get voters to the polls.

We all know that anti-hunting groups such as HSUS and PETA can easily launch a multi-million dollar campaign and sway the election, so we must all do everything possible to make sure we carry the day. Hunting is under an unprecedented attack, and allowing anti-hunting groups to win in Texas would be a huge blow to sportsmen and women everywhere.

Proposition 6 would amend the Texas Constitution by adding the right to hunt, fish, and harvest wildlife to the Texas Bill of Rights. It also guarantees that wildlife decisions will continue to be based on sound-scientific principles and not emotionalism driven by HSUS and other anti-hunting organizations. While Texas has a rich and vibrant hunting and fishing tradition, animal rights and anti-hunting organizations in other states have worked to limit hunting through onerous bag limits or by eliminating the hunting of certain types of game. This proposition would ensure that Texas’ long standing heritage of hunting and fishing is protected for future generations.
