HUNTER ETHICS

HUNTER ETHICS

Fundamental to all hunting is the concept of conservation of natural resources. Hunting in today's world involves the regulated harvest of individual animals in a manner that conserves, protects, and perpetuates the hunted population. The hunter engages in a one-to-one relationship with the quarry and his or her hunting should be guided by a hierarchy of ethics related to hunting, which includes the following tenets:

1. Obey all applicable laws and regulations.
2. Respect the customs of the locale where the hunting occurs.
3. Exercise a personal code of behavior that reflects favorably on your abilities and sensibilities as a hunter.
4. Attain and maintain the skills necessary to make the kill as certain and quick as possible.
5. Behave in a way that will bring no dishonor to either the hunter, the hunted, or the environment.
6. Recognize that these tenets are intended to enhance the hunter's experience of the relationship between predator and prey, which is one of the most fundamental relationships of humans and their environment.

ethics is a big one. i have heard alot of unethical hunting stories. but the biggest problem is they dont see nothing wrong with it.

yup thats a huge issue.
Very often they justify it by saying other people are doing it or just dismiss it and then go on a rant about native hunting rights that they dont agree with so why shouldnt they be able to do what they want to also.

I have to say in all the years I've been hunting I haven't seen ANY unethical behaviour. Even the Indian's shooting everything is sight in the middle of the night out of the back of a beat up pick up with HUGE spot lights have every RIGHT to do so.
