A Hunter's Pledge
Responsible hunting provides unnique challenges and rewards. However, the future of the sport depends on each hunter's behavior and ethics. Therfore, as a hunter I pledge to:
• Respect the environment and wildlife.
• Respect property and landowners.
• Show consideration for nonhunters.
• Hunt safely.
• Know and obey the law.
• Pass on an ethical hunting tradition.
• Strive to improve my outdoor skills and understanding of wildlife.
• Hunt only with ethical hunters.
By following these principles of conduct each time I go afield, I will give my best to the sport, the public, the environment and myself. The responsibility to hunt ethically is mine; the future of hunting depends on me.
