57% of ND voters voted against Ballot Measure 2 which would have banned high fence hunting in the state. We posted an entry about North Dakota Ballot Measure 2 here.
The Wall Street Journal has a write up on the results.
"They outspent us," Mr. Kaseman said in an interview. His group, North Dakota Hunters for Fair Chase, led the campaign on a shoestring budget, spending only about $25,000, he said.
The opposition was led by a whitetail deer rancher named Shawn Schafer. He and others formed the Citizens to Protect North Dakota's Property Rights, which framed the measure as a battle for private-property rights, rather than a debate over the ethics of hunting.
