An Idaho Senate Committee has put together a proposal to create an amendment to Idaho's founding documents. The amendment would add hunting, fishing and trapping as a constitutional right, so these rights could not be threatened by some radical groups.

The measure would have to receive support from two-thirds of the House and Senate before appearing on the ballot in November for the population to vote on. From
