“Fair chase” is a term used by hunters to describe an ethical approach to hunting big game animals. North America’s oldest wildlife conservation group, the Boone and Crockett Club, defines “fair chase” as requiring hunted big game animals to be wild and free-ranging. “Wild” refers to an animal that is naturally bred and lives in nature. “Free-ranging” means an animal that is not confined by artificial barriers. Fair chase has been the honor code of North American hunters for over a century and the principle underlying many of North American hunting laws, and is taught to new hunters in hunter certification courses.”
