BISMARCK, North Dakota: This week North Dakota activists filed the North Dakota Fenced Hunting Ban Initiative (2010) which proposes banning fenced hunting such as game preserves where people pay to shoot big-game animals.[1] The same group, North Dakota Hunters for Fair Chase, that supported the 2010 measure sponsored the same measure for the 2008 statewide ballot but failed to collect enough valid signatures.[2]

In order to qualify the initiative for the 2010 ballot, supporters must collect 12,844 signatures by August 4, 2010.[1] First, however, North Dakota Secretary of State Al Jaeger is expected to review and decide whether the proposal will be approved for circulation by mid-August 2009.[2]
