Ballot initiatives are often confusing to voters; you almost need an attorney to figure out what they mean. That is why I am writing this letter today regarding the wildlife amendment that will be on the ballot this November.

A vote for Proposition 5 means Utahns want to keep the wildlife management system just the way it has been for the past 75 years.A vote against the proposition will make it much easier for animal rights activists to come to Utah from Washington, D.C., and carry out their threats using expensive and misleading media campaigns. Our family will be voting for the amendment to protect Utah's freedoms and family traditions in Utah's great outdoors.
