HUNfER ETHICS by Ron Newell Principal Fish & Wildlife Tech. You may have heard the saying \there are a lot of hunters out there, but few sportsmen\. Livonia Edges HF-L What is at the root of this statement? Does it start when a hunter or group of hunters forget to get permission before hunting on private property? Does it start when a group of hunters are seen displaying poor or unsafe gun handling? Does it start .. .! could go on, but I am sure we have all seen this type of action during our pursuit of the sport of hunting. Hunters do not have to be satisfied with a poor public image, unsafe hunters. or the management of wildlife made more difficult because of the lack of hunter ethics. The \sport\ of hunting evolved after the necessity of hunting to feed and cloth oneself and family lessened because of agricultural and industrial devel- opment. The unwritten rules which governed the taking of wild game to ensure a continued supply for future yield was well ingrained into family life. This hunter ethic was passed' down from generaton to generation, from grandfather to father to son, a rich heritage indeed. . Today wildlife man- agement is a complex endeavor. Wildlife biologists and technicians are constantly using hunting and hunters as tools with which to accomplish the task pf sound wildlife man- agement. New York's deer man- agement program. is a prime example of how the sportsman can be an ethical hunter and aid in the management of wildlife populations. Each successful hunter who takes a White-tailed deer is required to completely fill out a deer carcass tag and attach Tim Bland scored a goal at the 30 minute mark to give Livonia a 2-1 victory it to his deer.

An ethical hunter thinks of all of these things prior to taking a deer, and completely fills out necessary carcass and report tags. One more step is then required of the ethical hunter; he must send in a accurate report card so the data can be used in the management system of the White-tailed deer in New York. Over ninety pereent of land in New York is privately owned. Hunters playa large part in determining whether this land is available for hunting. The ethical hunter promotes good sportsman/landowner relations by asking permission to hunt well in advance of the season. If permission is gained, he respects any restrictions or limitations set forth by the owner. If permission is not granted, the ethical hunter also respects the owner's wishes in a sportsman-like manner. Only with good land- owner/sportsmen relations can hunters expect· to have a future place to hunt. Proper hunter behavior not only helps insure the continuity of hunting but also the ability to manage wildlife. The high degree of private ownership of land (where wildlife exists and must be managed) can complicate a species manage- ment plan if the tool of hunting (population control) is curtailed by landowners posting their property. Indeed, hunters have many responsibilities. This responsibiltiy starts with your- self and then. extends to landowners, other hunters or outdoor recreationalists, the wild- life, and also the habitat and environment. Hunters can have a lifetime of enjoyment in the field. By being an ethical hunter, you will help insure that future generations will have the opportunity to enjoy hunting as you have. Generall y, t11ere is no audience to· approve or disapprove of an individual's action while afield, so it is up to each person to be of the highest moral character and be the Ethical Hunter--a SPORTS- MAN!
