ConstitSouth Carolina, Arizona, Arkansas, and Tennessee are four states currently considering adding the right to hunt and fish to their constitutions this fall. Ten states already have such provisions, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. New York Times reporter Eric Eckholm discusses the phenomenon in light of clashing definitions of conservation in our society: “A fly-fishing group in Arizona, for example, helped impose restrictions that saved a native trout species but is also endorsing the proposal on the ballot next month to enshrine hunting and fishing rights in the constitution. (Three other states will consider such proposals in November, while 10 states already have such clauses.)”
