The exact wording:

The recognition of this right does not abrogate any private or public property rights, nor does it limit the state's power to regulate commercial activity. Traditional manners and means may be used to take non-threatened species."

Please explain what you mean, because I don't see where you are are getting restrictions being placed on our rights out of that? By specifically saying that it doesn't supersede private/public property rights?
