After reading the disturbing recent post about the (I'm trying very hard not to resort to name calling here) um, so called hunter, paintballing deer, I got to thinking about the ethics violations I have seen in my life as a hunter, and sadly, they are many. I have seen people ground sluicing quail (as I stood next to them asking them not to) and other moronic behavior, hunting in closed areas, etc., all because people don't respect laws or the animals they hunt. In doing so, they put the goal of killing above the more altruistic idea of fair chase and the larger good of hunting as a whole.

The next time you are tempted to potentially break the law, or at the least, your own personal code of ethics, in pursuit of a game animal or bird, ask yourself, do I really need this animal that bad? Is what I am about to do going to reflect badly on hunting? Is it really worth it?

If we can't police ourselves, then the future of hunting is grim.
