To me, ethics are less about what we do, and more about how we decide what we do. Meaning ethics have a longer half life than one season. My decisions while hunting are the result of everything I have absorbed during my life, not just while hunting. If those experiences and decisions do not get discussed on internet forums, how can hunters consider their own ethics in light of the ethics of others? I suspect ethical questions are difficult to discuss in person for most. I'm sure that abandonment of ethics would hasten the end of sport hunting on public lands.At the end of the day I drove home, put the gun in the safe and ripped up my tag. And I felt terrible for the next two weeks
I think being done after drawing blood can be a good management tactic in certain areas. I don't think it makes sense to make it make it a blanket reg, but it's a good tool.if hunters should advocate it becoming a law or not.
