Trapping's legacy

Posted on Wed, Apr 23, 2014 at 2:25 PM

I am nearly 77 years old and if you sold everything I own I doubt I am worth $1,000. When I was born I had the freedom and the right to trap, which I have done since I was 6. Initiative 169 would ban trapping in Montana. To think that in my 77 years on earth we would deny the freedom and the rights to future generations to trap in the state of Montana is unthinkable.

Two things that must be done to stop this nonsense is not to sign I-169 and amend the state constitution so that no one should be denied their God-given rights. I have one request of the good people of Montana: pass a constitutional amendment to keep trapping legal for as long as this country lasts.
