States being asked for 'right-to-hunt' amendments

Lifelong hunter Bill Haycraft of Kentucky sees his treasured outdoors heritage under siege and in need of constitutional protection from animal rights advocates.
He's one of many hunters backing a "right-to-hunt" amendment that's expected to be on his state's 2012 ballot.
Kentucky is just the latest in a long line of states that have passed or are considering right-to-hunt measures to head off a feared hunting ban.
Animal rights activists, however, say it's all unnecessary.
"It's a solution in search of a problem," said Michael Markarian, chief operating officer for The Humane Society of the United States. "These measures don't accomplish anything."
