At Aero Hunter we believe in the principle of fair chase that hunting can and should be humane and responsible toward wildlife and the natural environment. The Pope & Young Club was established to promote the practices of fair chase, which it describes this way:
“Simply defined, fair chase is the ethical, sportsmanlike, and lawful pursuit of free-ranging wild game animals in a manner which does not give the hunter an improper or unfair advantage over the animal.”
Often the guidelines are stated in terms of what NOT TO do, as described here by Pope & Young.
Stating these in a positive way, in terms of what TO do, can be seen here
No matter how you say it, practicing Fair Chase is the way to assure the best hunting experience for all, now and into the future. Quoting again from the Pope & Young Club.
“The fair chase concept…is an attitude and a way of life based in a deep-seated respect for wildlife, for the environment, and for other individuals who share the bounty of this vast continent’s natural resources.”
