    I noticed that several Southern states are voting on whether or not the Right to Hunt and Fish should be included as an amendment in the state constitution.

    What exactly does this mean? Does it mean that if I don't want someone to hunt on my property, that I am violating their constitutional rights? Does it mean that hunting out of season would be a violation of constitutional rights?

    Help. Thanks.

    Not real sure what that means but let me tell you about my cousin, Betty Lou. She moved to Washington, DC and got a job as a typist in one of those big government offices. According to her supervisor, she wasn't a very good typist cause she was a hunting pecker. Is this the same thing you're talking about? I'm not sure if that is on the ballot or not.

    I have no idea, but I have the right to keep anyone I want off of my property. Gotta protect my stock and crops.

    and I am old and cranky and WILL shoot em. And get away with it.

    What if I'm stopping over with some homemade apple crisp with ice cream and some fresh rep?

    It means that King Obama cannot declare that all the deer in all the forests in the land are actually his, what is so hard to understand about that?

    I am told it means that PETA cannot try to ban hunting on humanitarian grounds or something, which they did in NJ and PA.
    I personally think it's stupid as hell. There is nothng I will be able to do tomorrow I could do yesterday. I did vote for it anyway though.

    What is hard to understand is that it is some inherent right. Right is a heavy word and gets thrown around too damn much. I cannot see hunting as a right.
