Dear Editor,

I am nearly 77 years old and if you sold everything I own I doubt I am worth $1000. When I was born I had the freedom and the right to trap, which I have done since I was 6 years old. Initiative 169 would ban trapping in Montana. To think that in my 77 years on earth we would deny the freedom and the rights to future generation to trap in the state of Montana is unthinkable.

Two things must be done to stop this nonsense, do not sign I 169 and amend the state constitution that no one should be denied their god given rights. I have one request of the good people of Montana; Pass a constitutional amendment to keep trapping legal for as long as this country lasts.

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Mike Dey, Missoula
