Through our Conservation Fund, we support National, Regional and Local conservation organizations to ensure the future of our sport. These partners, such as Ducks Unlimited, Pheasants Forever, Ruffed Grouse Society and Delta Waterfowl just to name a few, dedicate themselves to protecting wildlife habitat, growing game populations and introducing new members to our sport. If you’re not already a member of one of these amazing organizations, here are some great reasons to join:
To Meet New Hunting Partners – If you’ve ever been to a meeting for your local conservation organization, you know that you are surrounded by a group of awesome hunters with great values and a passion for the sport. It’s a great arena to meet new hunting partners, trade stories, get tips on the best hunting spots in the area, and have a great time while doing your part to help our sport. If you’re new to an area and looking to meet some people to hit the field with, this is definitely the place start. If you’ve lived in the area a while but haven’t fully committed to a chapter yet, we highly suggest checking out a meeting to see all the great opportunities your organization offers.
To Get Your Hands Dirty – Every year thousands of chapters are getting out and getting their hands dirty to improve hunting habitats in their area. These offer great opportunities for you to take part in directly improving habitats in your community. It’s a great point of pride to look on a project after completion and know that you were a part of it.
To Recruit New Members to the Sport – Our partners in conservation aren’t just striving to maintain habitats; they’re working to secure the future of our sport. Most chapters strive to bring hunting to people that would otherwise not get to experience it. The more people we expose to the sport, the better off our future is. More people working on habitat conservation. More people fighting for hunters rights. More security our children, our grandchildren and ourselves will get to be chasing the birds twenty years out of range.
To Win Cool Stuff – Yes, it’s better to give than to receive, but receiving is pretty cool, too. All of our partners go out of their way to make sure their members know they are appreciated. These efforts may include contests for awesome hunts or cool gear, free apparel or great shows throughout the country. Also, many company’s (such as SportDOG) donate products to chapter fundraisers, which could mean you get a great deal on an awesome system.
To Be a Part of Our Future – They say that without hunting there would be no conservation, and as hunters and outdoorsmen we try to prove them right. Our Conservation Partners are part of an important fight to make sure we will have game to hunt for as long as there are people to chase it. Helping in this fight gives you the opportunity to be a part of making this happen.
