Respect the Law

Legal and ethical responsibilities typically overlap. State and Federal fishing and hunting regulations exist to protect our access, resource, wildlife, and other hunters. Following game laws is a cornerstone of outdoor etiquette.

 

Respect Guides and Landowners

Many of our fishing and hunting activities take place on privately owned properties. When you are granted access to private lands and waterways through Migrate, or by the good graces of a friend, everyone in your group has the responsibility to follow written and unwritten rules. Most of us have grown up learning the rules of fishing and hunting etiquette from a responsible family member. We've learned that we should always base our actions on common sense and respect. For instance;

  • Many landowners ask that gates be closed; however, most often the unwritten rule of is to leave gates as you found them, sometimes open, sometimes closed.
  • Waterfowl hunters may need to move decoys and blinds into a planted field. Most farmers allow vehicle access provided conditions are dry, and the hunters drive between swaths, not on them.
  • Conduct your outdoor activities with as little intrusion as possible. Consider where you park, set up camp and enjoy your downtime. Out of sight, out of mind is a good rule to follow.
  • If you have questions, always ask your landowner or guide.
 

Respect Land and Waterways

Adventurists proclaim with pride that we're the ultimate conservationists. Always reinforce this concept through your actions and responsibility to the land.

  • Leave no trace. Pick-up any trash or debris, and leave any outdoor space better than you found it.
 

Respect Wildlife

Wildlife management authorities monitor populations and allow harvests based on sustainability. Likewise, many hunters will fill as many tags as they are permitted by law.

Regardless of regulations, hunters, share a responsibility for managing game populations. Over-harvest creates irreversible problems.
