BAN CANNED HUNTING in Indiana!

    1. Petition by

      Indiana Wildlife Federation

What is "canned hunting"?  The term “canned hunting” comes from the hunting practices that are common on shooting preserves. “Hunters” pay a large fee to enter a fenced-in enclosure and shoot a trophy buck. Shooting preserves and "canned hunting" violate ethical standards, threaten wildlife health and threaten Indiana's economy.

SHOOTING PRESERVES VIOLATE ETHICAL STANDARDS.

Hunting captive deer that cannot escape from enclosed pens violates the principle of fair chase. Shooting captive deer in a pen is not ethical.

SHOOTING PRESERVES THREATEN WILDLIFE HEALTH.

The health of Indiana’s wild deer herd is threatened when captive deer on shooting preserves are held in high density populations that promote the spread of disease. 

SHOOTING PRESERVES THREATEN INDIANA'S ECONOMY.

Deer hunting in Indiana contributes over $300 million annually and supports >1600 jobs. Anything threatening Indiana’s wild deer population would have a negative economic impact.

Representative Brian Bosma, Speaker of the House, Indiana House of Representatives
I support a Permanent Ban on "canned hunting" in Indiana. High fenced shooting of deer and other cervids is unethical, diminishes the public image of hunting and increases the threat of disease to our native wild deer.

Sincerely,
[Your name]
