OK, I know i'm the one that complains the most about seeing this in other threads, thats why I started this one. I'm really not a complicated person so I look at things in a simple way.
The bottom line for me with ethics is the same way I approach fair chase huting: I believe that true "hunting" is done on the animals terms, it's up to us to figure out their habits and patterns if we are to succeed in harvesting one. Not leaving meat in the field if at all possible and teaching your partners to do the same. Not turning a blind eye when someone violates the law. Leaving the land the same way you found it and taking out others trash if you should stumble upon it. Only taking what you can use or need.
Thats it, pretty simple really. I know some people will pick apart what i have said here and try and twist things around, thats ok because I know where I stand on ethics and I feel, for me, that it's the right way.
