A hunter meeting a non-hunter
  • Transport animals discreetly—don’t display them.
  • Keep firearms out of sight.
  • Refrain from taking graphic photographs of the kill and from vividly describing the kill while within earshot of non-hunters.
  • Maintain a presentable appearance while on the street—no bloody or dirty clothing.

How To Behave If Confronted by Anti-Hunter Protesters

  • Remain calm and polite, and do not engage in arguments—never lose your temper.
  • Never touch an anti-hunter or use any physical force, and especially never threaten an anti-hunter with your firearm.
  • Report hunter harassment to law enforcement authorities. If possible, record the vehicle license number of harassers.
