This Week's Poll
The Indiana State House of Representatives has passed a so-called “canned hunting” measure on to the state Senate. This bill is opposed by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources on the grounds that hunting within fenced areas is not sporting and that importing trophy animals from other states can spread disease among deer. What do you think? Should the Senate go along with the House and allow enclosed hunting in Indiana? Please check the response that most closely reflects your views.

Please select one:
1. – Canned hunting is a bad idea. The state legislature should trust DNR professional judgment and keep fenced-in hunting illegal.
2. – No opinion.
3. – If farmers want to use their land in this way, they should be allowed to do so. It is the Legislature’s role to preserve freedoms like this.
