Former Idaho F&G chief opposes HJR2aa, the right to hunt, fish and trap amendment

The Boise Guardian reports today that retired Idaho Fish & Game Director Steve Huffaker has come out against HJR2aa, the right to hunt, fish and trap constitutional amendment on the November ballot, and raised questions about the inclusion of a clause about water rights, which was among various changes made to the bill during the legislative process. “I see no valid reason to amend the constitution," Huffaker told the Guardian. "We opposed similar attempts for 10 years. And now they have inserted the water language which is certainly not good news for fish.” You can read the Guardian's full post here. The current Idaho Fish & Game Commission has endorsed the measure.
