MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – A constitutional amendment to strengthen hunting and fishing rights in Alabama has been ratified by voters.

The so-called “Sportsperson’s Bill of Rights” states that citizens have a right to hunt and fish subject to reasonable regulations.

It also says those regulations should promote conservation and management and guarantee the future of fishing and hunting.

In Mississippi, voters amended their state constitution to codify the right to hunt and fish, joining 17 other states who already have done the same.

Under the new amendment, state game wardens will work with Mississippi lawmakers to regulate seasons and other license requirements. Mississippi hunters said they were responding to animal rights activists who seek to curb hunting in favor of contraception and other means of controlling wildlife population.
