IMG_2473Texas Prop 6: Right to Hunt and Fish Constitutional Amendment will Appear as Proposition 6 on the November 2015 Ballot!


Texas: Protect Your Right to Hunt & Fish – Urge Your Lawmaker to Support HJR 61 and SJR 22

State Senator Brandon Creighton (R-Conroe) pre-filed Senate Joint Resolution 22, proposing an amendment to the Texas constitution that protects the right to hunt, fish and harvest wildlife in the Lone Star State.  An identical measure, House Joint Resolution 61, was pre-filed in the House on December 17.

HJR 61, introduced by state Representative Trent Ashby (R-Lufkin), and SJR 22, sponsored by Senator Creighton, would ensure that future wildlife conservation and management decisions are based on sound science in order to preserve Texas’ hunting heritage for generations to come. Language for the resolution includes the following:

The people have the right to hunt, fish, and harvest wildlife, including by the use of traditional methods, subject to laws or regulations to conserve and manage wildlife and preserve the future of hunting and fishing. Hunting and fishing are preferred methods of managing and controlling wildlife.

Adding the Right to Hunt & Fish to the state constitution would protect Texas’ rich sporting tradition from well-funded efforts by national extremist groups to ban hunting.  This important constitutional safeguard will protect wildlife and promote conservation, which are efforts that Texas sportsmen have spearheaded for generations, significantly contributing to the state’s diverse and flourishing wildlife populations.

If passed, the language contained in the joint resolutions will be presented for a public vote in November 2015.  Currently, 18 states have adopted some form of a right to hunt and fish constitutional protection.

The Texas Legislature convenes for its 2015 Regular Session on Tuesday, January 13.  There have been a significant number of changes in the Texas Senate and House due to legislative retirements and results from the 2014 elections.  State lawmakers are moving offices, incoming members have yet to be sworn in, and committee assignments will not be made for several weeks.  NRA-ILA will provide you that information as it becomes available, as well as a more comprehensive update on firearm-related bills that have been pre-filed thus far. 

In the meantime, please spread the word about HJR 61 & SJR 22 to your fellow gun owners and sportsmen and urge them to support these important measures!  Encourage them to sign up for FREE legislative alerts from NRA-ILA during session by clicking here.  This is the easiest way to stay informed of bills in Austin affecting our Second Amendment rights and hunting heritage.


State Constitutional Right to Hunt and FishFrom Natl. Conference of State Legislatures

Eighteen states guarantee the right to hunt and fish in their constitutions, with 17 of those approved via the voters. While Vermont’s language dates back to 1777, the rest of these constitutional provisions—in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming—have passed since 1996. California and Rhode Island have language in their respective constitutions guaranteeing the right to fish, but not to hunt. Advocates also consider Alaska’s constitutional language—“Wherever occurring in their natural state, fish, wildlife, and waters are reserved to the people for common use”—as meeting the test because of its strong case law history.

2015 Update

Currently in 2015, 9 states—Indiana,  Kansas, Maine, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Oregon and Texas—are debating bills that would add a constitutional right to hunt and fish. West Virginia considered two bills, but they both failed. 

2014 Update

Mississippi became the 18th state with a constitutional right to hunt and fish provision with 88 percent of voters in favor of the amendment. Alabama voters, nearly 80 percent of them, refined already existing language, adding that hunting and fishing are the “preferred means of managing and controlling wildlife.”   

Eight states— Alabama, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and West Virginia—considered bills in 2014 proposing the creation of a state constitutional amendment to protect the right to hunt and fish. The Indiana legislature adopted a resolution calling for an amendment establishing the right to hunt and fish in their constitution, but it must also pass in the 2015 or 2016 legislative session to be placed on the ballot.

2012 Election Update

In November of 2012, voters in four more states—Idaho, Kentucky, Nebraska, and Wyoming—overwhelmingly passed legislatively referred ballot measures to add a constitutional right to hunt and fish. Seven other states—Hawaii, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York and Pennsylvania—considered legislation to amend the constitution to add the right to hunt and fish in 2012, but were unsuccessful.

2010 Election Update

Arizona, Arkansas, South Carolina, and Tennessee had measures on the 2010 ballot to enshrine the right to hunt and fish in their state constitutions. The measures in Arkansas, South Carolina and Tennessee passed, but Arizona became the first state to reject such an initiative.

10,295 +/- Acres
Exceptional Ranch For Sale
Long-time ownership/First time on the market!

The Riddel Ranch is in Stonewall County, TX and is comprised of approximately 10,295 acres. The ranch is located near Aspermont and has several miles of highway frontage, as well as access by several county roads. The ranch is an excellent combination of native pasture and cultivated fields, with live water in two creeks and numerous large ponds and dirt tanks. The ranch is considered to have excellent cover for wildlife. The southern portion of the property is generally level and slightly sloping with a moderate to dense canopy of mesquite. As you transition north, cedar becomes more prevalent and the terrain becomes more broken. Rock Creek heads on the ranch and flows in a northeasterly direction through approximately two miles of the ranch. Another live creek flows through the northern portion of the property for approximately two miles.

The ranch is in fantastic condition with a tremendous grass turf. Many of the large earthen tanks have been cleaned out in recent years and hold water well.

The Riddel Ranch is a fantastic offering and would be very suitable for subdivision. The highway frontage and county road access makes for a very desirable property for an investor.

Priced at $825/acre we feel this is an exceptional ranch for the money.

Riddel Ranch Topo Map

The Sutter Ranch is The ranch is located in the northwestern portion of the state between Shattuck and Woodward, Oklahoma in Ellis County. The ranch features exceptional live water features, a good grass turf for grazing of livestock and cattle, irrigated and dryland farmland and very good recreation features. The Woodward Airport is approximately 15 minutes from the property.

The Sutter Ranch was assembled in multiple adjoining tracts during the 1920’s and has been owned by heirs of the Sutter Family for nearly 100 years and this is the first time the ranch has been offered for sale. The centerpiece of the property is the scenic and very productive Wolf Creek bottom area, which meanders through the southern portion of the ranch for a distance of approximately 7 miles. Wolf Creek provides year round crystal clear live water, with tree covered surroundings creating a “park like” setting throughout the 7 plus miles of the creek bottom. Immediately north of the tree covered creek bottom area, the terrain gently elevates and is fairly level to gently sloping and sometimes undulating. Throughout this area, the ranch has a fairly open appearance with a turf of mixed native grasses, along with substantial plum thickets, sumac and scattered sage.

Three pivot sprinkler systems are located on the ranch, with a total of approximately 460 wet acres of irrigated ground. Typically, these irrigated circles are farmed in wheat or hybrid sudan for seasonal grazing or for hay production. To the east of these pivots is a large sub-irrigated native hay meadow, which generally produces several hundred large round bales of native grass hay. The native hay is a combination of Eastern Gama, Switch, several varieties of Bluestem and mixed meadow grasses. To the south of Wolf Creek are several dryland fields containing a total of about 50 acres.

As the country continues to transition north, the terrain becomes more sloping, hilly and broken with several major drainages, all descending to Wolf Creek. Grass vegetation includes side oats, gramma, brome and several varieties of bluestem.

The property is considered to be extremely well watered with live water in Wolf Creek and Twenty Five Mile Creek, windmills, electric submersible wells, one solar well and a small amount of pipeline watering. The water quality is generally excellent, being in the Ogallala Aquifer. The irrigation wells reportedly have capacities of around 800 – 900 gallons per minute each.

Recreation, hunting and fishing are major components of the Sutter Ranch. Whitetail Deer and Turkey literally flourish in the wooded creek bottom areas. Quail and dove are in abundance throughout the property, as well as pheasant. Mule Deer are occasionally viewed in the more open hilly and broken areas found on the north side of the ranch. Fishing is generally good in
Wolf Creek. The irrigated cultivated land is adjacent to the wooded creek bottom country. When this land is planted to wheat and/or hybrid sudan, it becomes a magnet for the huge deer population found throughout the protected creek bottom, and it is not uncommon to view hundreds of deer in the early morning or late evening grazing this lush forage. The State of Oklahoma is on every serious whitetail hunters watchlist every year for trophy deer, and the genetics found on the Sutter Ranch should satisfy even the most seasoned whitetail hunter. Game management has been a tradition on this ranch and it shows in the quality deer that flourish on the property.

The property is located in a desirable ranching area, receiving annual precipitation in the range of 23–24 inches per year.

The Sutter Ranch is listed at $16,375,000, or approximately $1,295 per acre. The Sutter Ranch is very representative of one of the finest ranches in this area of Oklahoma. This is the first time this
long term ownership ranch has ever been offered for sale. The ranch is very well kept and is ready to operate and enjoy.

Iconic Chunk of Texas for Sale for $725 Million
Published on Jul 21, 2015
The Waggoner Ranch in north Texas is slightly smaller than Rhode Island and is the largest ranch in the U.S. within a single fence. Everything about it is Texas-scale: the colorful history, the sprawl, the oil that lies beneath it, and the feud among the heirs that is forcing a court-ordered sale. This old-fashioned working ranch comes with 6,800 cattle, 500 quarter horses, more than 1,000 producing oil wells, nearly 30,000 acres of farmland and more than 150 years of history. The price tag: $725 Million.

We are proud to have obtained an exclusive listing on the very well improved, highly productive, Frisco Creek Ranch, which is ideally located in the Northern Texas Panhandle. The ranch is located approximately 80 air miles north of Amarillo, just northeast of Stratford, Texas, the county seat of Sherman County.

The Frisco Creek Ranch is located in an area of long-term family ownership operations, where properties of this quality and size rarely become available for sale. Typical operations in this area are a combination of native pasture, irrigated farmland and improved pasture, such as CRP.

This desirable ranch has a terrain which varies from virtually level to gently sloping and slightly broken, descending to seasonal draws and creeks draining portions of the ranch. Elevations on the property range from around 3,400 – 3,500 feet on the upland plains, and descend to around 3,350 feet in the lower creek bottom areas. The ranch is a combination of irrigated farmland, improved pasture and native grass.
