The right to hunt for free?

Posted By on Sat, Nov 6, 2010 at 7:12 AM

Does a right to hunt mean a right to hunt for free? We don't have to get a license to speak, after all.

UALR Law Dean John DiPippa tells Channel 4 that the new right-to-hunt amendment, since it's tied into Amendment 35 giving the Game and Fish Commission power to oversee wildlife management, probably doesn't confer free hunting privileges. He allows, though, that if the fee got so high as to be prohibitive, an argument might be possible.

More interesting, he says, is the argument whether this constitutional right to hunt could trump statutes that keep guns out of the hands of convicted felons. I suspect there are a range of other potentially interesting hypotheticals out there.
