This election is crucial.

Wildlife advocates and hunting rights activists need to hear from voters
A subsequent initiated statute supported by hunting rights advocates was passed by the Legislature and would make these referendums moot by reaffirming control through the NRC. Still, wildlife advocates say they plan to go to court to make constitutional arguments against the Scientific and Professional Wildlife Management Act.
Vote no on proposals
The fight to keep Michigan’s wolves protected has been a long one, and this November it will finally be in the hands of the voters. The small group of sportsmen and politicians who support the wolf hunt have tried to take this vote away from the people. Now, they also want to take away any vote related to wildlife and leave all of the decision-making in the hands of a small, politically appointed committee with no scientific background.
If politicians preying upon your attentions this season fail to inspire, you might seek common cause with the beasts — the four-legged variety rather than those running for office.
Ballot initiatives aimed at protecting bears and wolves from hounding, trapping and other inhumane hunting practices are up for a vote in two states — Maine and Michigan.
On November 4, Michigan voters will have an opportunity to weigh in on two measures— Proposals 1 and 2—that, if passed, would harm the state’s small, vulnerable wolf population and prevent the public from weighing in on important wildlife protection and management decisions.
This November, Michigan voters will find two referendum proposals that, if passed, would strip voting rights and declare a trophy hunting season on wolves. But, we’re confident that when Michiganders review the facts carefully, they’ll say “no” to the trophy hunting of wolves and “no” to this power grab to take away their voting rights.
MICHIGAN VOTERS WILL get a chance in the Nov. 4 election to take a stand on whether wolf hunting should be allowed, but the outcome may not matter.
Ann Arbor's representatives in the Michigan Legislature are making it clear they plan to vote against allowing wolf hunting on Nov. 4.
