Senate Bill SB 236 passed out of the Montana State House today, March 21, 2017.

A BILL FOR AN ACT ENTITLED: "AN ACT SUBMITTING TO THE QUALIFIED ELECTORS OF MONTANA AN AMENDMENT TO ARTICLE IX, SECTION 7, OF THE MONTANA CONSTITUTION RECOGNIZING THAT THE RIGHT TO HUNT, FISH, AND TRAP TO HARVEST FISH AND WILDLIFE IS ESSENTIAL TO PURSUING LIFE'S BASIC NECESSITIES; ESTABLISHING THAT PUBLIC HUNTING, FISHING, AND TRAPPING ARE THE PREFERRED MEANS OF CONTROLLING AND HARVESTING FISH AND WILDLIFE; ALLOWING STATUTES THAT SEEK SCIENTIFIC WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AND CONSERVATION, SAFEGUARD CURRENT LAWFUL MEANS AND METHODS OF HUNTING, FISHING, AND TRAPPING, AND PROTECT PERSONS AND PROPERTY FROM HARM CAUSED BY FISH OR WILDLIFE; AND PROVIDING AN EFFECTIVE DATE."

This is a pro-hunting, pro-fishing, pro-trapping bill. Contact your Montana representatives and senators to support your heritage and your right to hunt, fish and trap in Montana on public lands and private property that you have permission to recreate on!  The Green Decoy groups are out in full force to stop this!
