Hunting, Fishing, Nature, Tradition (French: Chasse, Pêche, Nature, Traditions, abbreviated as CPNT) is an agrarianist French political party which aims to defend the traditional values of rural France. Its current leader is Frédéric Nihous. The party states it is neither right or left but represent rural people on the whole in their diversity.


Formed in 1989, it contested both the European elections of 1989 and 1994 without success. In 1999, it obtained six seats, led by Jean Saint-Josse who was at the top of the list. It lost all representation at the following election to the European Parliament in 2004, when it obtained less than the minimum 3% of votes that allow a party to be reimbursed for campaign expenses. Consequently, it faced a deficit of 300,000 euros. At one stage, it had 32 regional councillors, but lost all of them in that same year. After these problems, most members of the CPNT have joined the UMP or the Movement for France, but the party is still in existence, and nominated Frédéric Nihous, a hunter from Northern France, as a candidate in the Presidential election of 2007. Nihous won 1,15% of votes only, much lower than Jean Saint-Josse in 2002.
