The article focuses on the proposed bill by Representative Marv Hagedorn of Idaho to make wildlife hunting a right for every individual in the U.S. Some of the legislators have opposed to the said bill, because according to them, the proposal can weaken the regulation that protect wildlife from rampant overhunting. In 2005 the National Rifle Association with sportsmen group made model that allowed states to take reasonable hunting regulations, protect traditional method of hunting and declare hunting as preferred way to wildlife management. Chris Marchion, past president of Montana Wildlife Federation, stated that hunting activity must remain to be privilege that is allocated democratically.
