Traditional Hunter Behavior Sets The Standard


Fri Oct 31 00:00:00 MDT 2008

Although hunting is not a "team sport," sportsmanship and ethics are as important in hunting as they are in any other outdoor activity. 

If hunters keep a few simple thoughts in mind, they can hunt safely and set a good example for other hunters. 

  • Follow the rules of safe gun handling.
  • Be proficient in the use of your equipment.
  • Know and obey laws and regulations.
  • Develop hunting skills and knowledge.
  • Develop a personal code of conduct.
  • Respect the wildlife you hunt and the land it inhabits.
  • Respect other hunters and rights of non-hunters and landowners.
  • Relax and enjoy your hunt, whether you get your game or not.
  • Get involved in conserving wildlife and hunting.
  • Be a role model; share your skill and knowledge with others.
