Minnesota Hunter Safety Course


3. Responsibility for Actions

  • Do not turn your head on game violations - report any violation.
  • Work with and cooperate with law enforcement officials.
  • Understand that your actions reflect directly on how others view you as a hunter, and the sport of hunting in general.
  • Admit when you have done something wrong.
  • Understand that you can and will be held accountable for your actions.
  • Ensure harvested game animals are properly field dressed so no meat is wasted.
  • Pass up a shot if it is unsafe or if the shot will not produce a clean and swift harvest of the game animal.
  • Do not litter. Pick up discarded shells or casings, and those of others as well.
  • Do not drive off designated roads or trails, and stay off private roads unless you have permission from the landowner.
