WHY FIGHT FOR
THE HUNT —

What is the point? Why are we so concerned?

Sportsmen have been under attack for many years by well-funded national anti-hunting groups who demonstrate a clear disregard for both the cherished traditions of many American and Canadian citizens as well as responsible wildlife management in their drive to eliminate hunting and fishing.

HUNTING

TRADITION —

Most hunters grew up in a hunting family, spending time with their parents in the forest learning how to hunt and how to survive in the outdoors. Hunting is a valuable life skill that leads to a better understanding of the environment and what it takes to maintain balance in nature. It is important to protect hunting traditions for future generations.

THE IMPORTANCE OF FAMILY HUNTING TRADITIONS
  • Build trust and family connections by spending time together without the distraction of technology
  • Gives parents opportunity to spend quality time with their children
  • Important life lessons can be passed on to future generations
  • Learning to respect and appreciate the outdoors.

FAMILY

CULTURE —

Indigenous peoples have survived for generations due to an in-depth knowledge of hunting, fishing, and their local environment. Families and friends work together to gather food, medicine, and materials from the surrounding lands. This indigenous knowledge continues to be essential as wild-caught foods are healthier, fresher, and considerably more affordable especially in remote and rural communities.

CULTURE

WILD HARVEST —

The meat from a healthy wild animal (such as a deer) that has lived its life freely and on a natural diet of plants generally has a higher nutritional quality than that of a domestic animal that has been raised in an unnatural way. Hunting an animal for its meat can also be seen as a more natural way to obtain animal protein since regulated hunting does not cause the same environmental issues as raising domestic animals for meat, especially on factory farms.

WILD HARVEST INITIATIVE

The myriad benefits of harvesting and consuming wild fish and game have never been calculated at a large scale in North America. The Wild Harvest Initiative® will change that reality, providing the first complete assessment of the significance of hunting and angling to modern society, economically, socially, and ecologically.

If you are a hunter who believes in protecting the natural world and who cares about the health and welfare of wildlife and the animals that you hunt… Take the Hunter’s Pledge and add your name to our growing list of supporters who believe in the right to hunt and fish.

As a hunter, I care about the health and welfare of wildlife, and of the animals that I hunt. I am committed to protecting the natural world, and to the principles that protect how the animal lives, and how it dies.

Therefore, I pledge that when I hunt, the wildlife:

  1. Is free to roam
  2. Lives in a natural environment
  3. Can behave naturally
  4. Dies quickly and cleanly
  5. Is fully utilized

When you take the pledge you are expressing support for the Hunter’s Pledge movement and signing up to our email list. We will keep you informed as we take action to protect our rights to hunt and fish.
