Tuesday's vote was about 78 percent in favor of H.J.R. 2aa - The Right to hunt, fish and trap measure.
While the intent seems sincere from a sportsman's perspective, one always must consider the legal ramifications of a constitutional amendment. There's some concern this measure may have consequences for wildlife habitat – and therefore to hunters and anglers — down the line.
The issue has been pointed out in this Idaho Statesman column by Rocky Barker — http://www.idahostatesman.com/2012/10/28/2326090/right-to-hunt-fish-trap-goes-to.html.
Also before the election, a retired Idaho Fish and Game Department fisheries biologist expressed his concerns here.
