Montanans could get to cast their vote on whether or not trapping on public land should be legal.
The Montana secretary of state gave approval last week for anti-trappers to try to collect 25,000 signatures to get the issue on the November 2016 ballot.
I-177 would not take away private landowners’ rights to trap.
The group that filed the bill believes $61,000 in revenue will be lost in trapping licenses.
