BOONE AND CROCKETT FAIR

CHASE STATEMENT

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.

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.
