Frontier hunter

The concept of fair chase began in the Middle Ages when hunters increased the challenge of sport hunting by setting rules that limited how they took game. More recently, fair chase rules were developed to stem public criticism of hunters. Fair chase rules include banning the use of vehicles, airplanes, and radios; electronic calling; and shooting in a fenced enclosure. Many states have made the rules into law.
