The Hunter’s Pledge

Hunting Regulations Icon Connecticut Hunting

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.
