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 nonhunters.
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.
