Fox 13 News reports House Joint Resolution 15, sponsored by Rep. Casey Snider, R-Paradise, would enshrine that as a right into Utah’s constitution. It was filed on Friday.
The resolution states that “the individual right of the people to hunt, to fish, and to harvest wildlife is a valued part of the State’s heritage and shall be forever preserved for the public good.” It also includes the right to use traditional methods (like bow-hunting and firearms) to hunt or harvest wildlife.
