Idaho Voters Approve Amendment On Hunting And Fishing

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A constitutional amendment to protect the right to hunt, fish and trap has been approved by a wide margin by Idaho voters.
    
With nearly 50 percent of precincts reporting, HJR2 earned support from 74.4 percent of voters early Wednesday morning.
    
Idaho now joins 13 other states that have added similar language into their state constitutions.
    
Supporters argue that protecting the right to hunt, fish and trap is critical to ensuring future generations can take part in those popular outdoor activities. They also claimed making hunting, fishing and trapping a collective right protects against efforts by animal rights activists to curtail those activities.
    
During the 2012 Legislature, lawmakers from both parties approved putting the question to voters. It also had the backing of the Idaho Fish and Game Commission.
