Here are the basics of good hunter etiquette:
• Follow the rules of safe gun handling.
• Be proficient in the use of your equipment.
• Know and obey laws and regulations.
• Develop hunting skills and knowledge.
• Develop a personal code of conduct and consistently stick to it—that includes packing out refuse, closing gates, and staying on roads.
• Respect the wildlife you hunt and the land it inhabits.
• Respect other hunters and rights of non-hunters and landowners.
• Relax and enjoy your hunt, whether you get your game or not.
• Get involved in conserving wildlife and hunting.
• Clean up your garbage, close gates.
• Be a role model; share your skill and knowledge with others.

Hunt safely and responsibly

The 1,200 volunteers who teach Hunter Education remind all hunters there are four basic rules of gun safety.
1) Always point the muzzle of your gun in a safe direction.
2) Always treat every gun as if it were loaded.
3) Always be sure of your target and beyond.
4) Always keep your finger off the trigger until ready to fire.
Hunting is a very safe activity. It is up to each hunter to make responsible decisions to keep it that way.
