The Hunter's Pledge

Hunting provides unique challenges and rewards. However, the future of this great tradition depends on each hunter being responsible and ethical. Therefore, as a hunter, I pledge to:
  • Show respect for the laws.
  • Show respect for other hunters.
  • Show respect toward landowners and always obtain permission to hunt on private land.
  • Show respect for non-hunters.
  • Show respect for the land and wildlife resources.
  • Familiarize myself with the areas where I plan to hunt and know the activities that occur there.
  • Wear at least 400 square inches of fluorescent orange when required for hunting.
  • Dress appropriately and be prepared for any sudden weather changes.
  • Call out “Hunter here!” loudly to make my location known if I see another hunter.
  • Take responsibility for my actions while hunting.
