Election Day was a victory for the Republican Party, but it also produced mostly positive results for hunters. Two states strengthened the rights of hunters and one rejected new hunting restrictions.

In Mississippi, voters amended their state constitution to codify the right to hunt and fish, joining 17 other states who already have done the same.

Under the new amendment, state game wardens will work with Mississippi lawmakers to regulate seasons and other license requirements. Mississippi hunters said they were responding to animal rights activists who seek to curb hunting in favor of contraception and other means of controlling wildlife population. The National Rifle Association strongly backed the amendment.

Alabama voters approved language to strengthen the state’s constitutional right to hunt. Both the Alabama and Mississippi amendments passed with more than 80 percent of the vote.
