Arizona Proposition on Hunting Fails

Staff Writer

A ballot initiative that would have guaranteed a right to hunt and fish has been shot down by voters. Proposition 109 would have given state legislators control over wildlife management and prevented citizen initiatives. But opponents, including wildlife biologists and environmental groups, said the proposition was vaguely worded and they feared that it might lead to a side-lining of scientific advice. The proposition was defeated 56% to 44%.
