Sustainable hunting is very beneficial, offering environment, economic and social benefits. While hunters help maintain wildlife populations, it is important that hunters understand the delicate balance of the earth’s ecosystem. As protectors and supporters of wilderness protection, hunters should always practice sustainable hunting, helping to minimize their environmental impact on today’s wildlife resources.
- Hunting Regulations – Hunting regulations are written for a reason – to help preserve and protect the environment. Each year, states’ observe the number of species, issuing certain numbers of permits for hunting each year. This helps keep the ecosystem in balance, avoiding over hunting techniques that can cause extreme environmental harm. State agencies also set restrictions to help prevent extinction and overhunting of species. It is very important that hunters strictly follow all hunting rules, which defines responsible hunting practices. It is illegal to violate hunting laws and the government imposes heavy penalties and even jail time to those that violate these restrictions.
- Whole Animal – When hunting, it is important to use the entire animal. Nothing should go to waste. Consider finding a local butcher that harvests the entire animal. If large game offers too much meat, consider giving it to other people.
- Leave No Trace – Hunters should practice the “leave no trace” ethics that helps to minimize human impact on the environment. This includes being respectful of property, using manufactured blinds, never shooting near developed areas, packing out all trash, using established roads and trails, reusing campsites, etc.
