Hunters in Indiana and Kansas scored landslide victories during the 2016 General Election when voters overwhelmingly approved adding an amendment to each state’s constitution that preserves the right to hunt. The Right to Hunt and Fish amendment (Public Question 1) that appeared on Indiana ballots passed with 79 percent of voters in support, while more than 81 percent of Kansas voters approved their state’s Right to Hunt, Fish and Trap amendment (Constitutional Amendment 1).

Including Indiana and Kansas, 21 states now declare hunting is a right in their constitutions. Right to hunt amendments ensure that states’ wildlife conservation and management decisions continue to be based on sound science in order to preserve the hunting heritage for generations to come and to protect it against future attacks from anti-hunting organizations.

The Indiana and Kansas ballot measures were championed by the NRA-ILA State and Local Affairs Division, which has promoted such initiatives for more than a decade. “The NRA has been the leading force in protecting the rich hunting and conservation heritage that will blanket America for generations to come,” said Lacey Biles, director of NRA-ILA State and Local Affairs.
