NWTF's Turkey Hunters' Code of Conduct
Take a look at our Turkey Hunters' Code of Conduct before hitting the spring woods.
As a responsible turkey hunter, I will
not let peer pressure or the excitement of the hunt cloud my judgment;
learn and practice safe hunting techniques;
hunt the wild turkey fairly;
know the capabilities and limitations of my gun or bow and use it safely;
obey and support all wildlife laws and report all violations
respect the land and the landowner and always obtain permission before hunting;
avoid knowingly interfering with another hunter and respect the right of others to lawfully share the out-of-doors;
value the hunting experience and appreciate the beauty of the wild turkey;
positively identify my target as a legal bird and insist on a good shot; and share responsible turkey hunting with others and work for wild turkey conservation.
