Course Outline

Responsible, ethical behavior is essential to the survival of hunting.

  • Each hunter should develop a personal code of conduct (sportsman’s code), which includes but is not limited to:
    • Following all laws and regulations
    • Behaving properly and appropriately at all times
  • By developing a personal code of conduct, you will be able to:
    • Act more responsibly.
    • Have more respect for your own behavior.
  • As you develop your personal code, remember that:
    • Your behavior as a hunter reflects on all hunters. How you behave may have a positive or negative effect on people’s opinions about hunters and hunting.
    • Positive actions by responsible hunters lead to a more positive public image of hunters.
      • One result may be greater acceptance of and support for hunting.
      • In addition, others may be more interested in becoming hunters.
