What factors into an ethical approach to hunting? Quite simply, it starts with keeping wildlife and other hunters in mind as you head outdoors, writes John Schandelmeier in an interesting column in the Anchorage Daily News.
“When we hunt, we must remember that hunting is similar to a bank loan,” the Alaska outdoorsman writes. “Follow the rules and pay back everything that was borrowed.”
Some highlights of his recommended approach:
- Don’t shoot if you have any doubts about whether you’ll hit your target.
- Make sure you don’t just carry out what is edible to you; carry out the parts that would be edible to most people.
- And make every effort to track down wounded game.
