A Hunter’s Pledge

Responsible hunting provides unique challenges and rewards. However, the future of the sport depends on each hunter’s behavior and ethics. Therefore, as a hunter, I pledge to:

  • Respect the environment and wildlife.
  • Respect property and landowners.
  • Show consideration for non-hunters.
  • Hunt safely.
  • Know and obey the law.
  • Support wildlife and habitat conservation.
  • 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.
