Brian,

Hunting is as much a part of my life (up bringing, etc.) as is breathing. It is a governed right for those who reside in Wisconsin. The passion given to the sport/experience extends the right to complete the hunt in a moral and ethical fashion.

Brian,

The fact that we offer a license to a person who has qualified to "hunt" make it a right that needs an option completed. It is an opportunity to have the right to hunt.

In 2003 - Wisconsin voters overwhelmingly approved adding the right to hunt, fish and trap to the State's constitution. There was no organized opposition.

I guess "legally" it is a "right" in that respect - BUT I consider it more a privelege- as I feel it is importamt to remember that we still need to follow standards of ethical behavior. This will insure that hunting, et. al. remain rights, with minimal restrictions attached, well into the future.

Good point Notso.  We have many rights in our society, but that doesn't mean they can't be taken away if they are abused.
