Part of what makes a "Sportsman" is his level of respect. His respect for the land, for the wildlife, for his fellow hunters and those that hunted before him and the generations that will continue the time honored tradition after he's walked his last trail.

Unfortunately there are those among us who choose to ignore etiquette, conducting their hunting activities with only self-serving interests in mind. At a time when our heritage activities are under constant scrutiny it behooves us to heed the importance of etiquette and ethics.

Let all of us who love the outdoors take a moment and take this brief refresher course and be sure to teach the code of the wild to your children.
