- Recognise the

- Every sport
hunter shall pursue an animal only by engaging in fair chase of the
quarry. Fair chase is defined as pursuit of a free roaming animal or
enclosed roaming animal possessed of the natural behavioural
inclination to escape from the hunter and be fully free to do so.
- Said animal is to
be hunted without artificial light source, not from a motorised mode
of conveyance and in an area that does not by its nature concentrate
animals for a specific purpose or at a specific time, such as at a
waterhole, salt lick or feeding station.
- No ethical hunter
while sport hunting shall take female animals with dependent young.
A sport hunted animal should exist as a naturally interacting member
of a wild sustainable population located in an area large enough for
it to breed and forage or hunt freely. Sport hunted animals should
be sustained within a natural state of balance between forage
predators and prey.
