JACKSON, MS (WLOX) -

Mississippi will make hunting and fishing a right, instead of simply a privilege. With just eight percent of precincts reporting, the Associated Press has declared the constitutional amendment passed.

Proponents of the amendment said it would better protect their freedom to hunt and fish in the future, and many admit it is proactive. Some opponents say the amendment is unnecessary.

Lawmakers have said that once the amendment is officially adopted, state game wardens will work with lawmakers to regulate seasons, limits, and other license requirements.
