FAIR CHASE, as defined by the Boone and
Crockett Club, is the ethical, sportsmanlike, and lawful pursuit and taking of any free-ranging wild, native North American big game animal in a manner that does not give the hunter an improper advantage over such animals.

6. Recognize that these tenets are intended to
