Part of the process of becoming a true, responsible sportsman is becoming involved in efforts to make hunting a respected sport.
- That includes teaching proper knowledge and skills to others, working with landowners, and cooperating with wildlife officials.
- It also includes joining conservation organizations dedicated to improving habitat and management efforts. Young hunters can be involved by joining organizations such as 4-H, Boy Scouts, and Girl Scouts, as well as by participating in wildlife projects in their local communities.
- Responsible, ethical behavior and personal involvement are both essential to the survival of hunting. How you behave and how other people see you will determine whether hunting will continue as a sport.
