"This privilege of hunting is about as fine a heritage as we have, and it needs to be passed on unsullied from father to son"
merci par avance

    It's (pass on) (unsullied)
    Unsullied is a somewhat surprising choice here as it has moral overtones; I think that's true of intact in French as well?

    pass [sth] on vtr phrasal sep(bequeath)transmettre vtr
    laisser (en héritage) vtr
    léguer vtr

    Peut-être 'transmis / légué sans tâches de père en fils'. Un héritage dont la réputation n'est pas entachée, moralement ou judiciairement, 'entaché' se dit 'sullied'.
