NoDak may vote on fenced hunting

August 06, 2008 at 07:18 AM

No matter what the folks in Texas say, not everyone approves of hunting behind high fences.

North Dakota residents may even have a chance to vote on the subject this fall. Here’s an AP story on the subject.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP)—Supporters of a North Dakota ban on fenced hunting say they’ve got just enough petition signatures to qualify for a November vote.

The initiative’s chairman, Roger Kaseman of Linton, brought boxes of petitions with 12,964 signatures into the secretary of state’s office just after 7 p.m. Tuesday. The deadline was midnight.

The minimum number of petition signatures needed is 12,844. Typically, a few hundred signatures are disqualified during the secretary of state’s review process. The hunting petition has only 120 extra names.

The proposal would prohibit owners of fenced animal preserves from taking paying customers on their land to shoot deer, elk and other big-game animals.
