Protecting hunters' rights and promoting wildlife conservation, SCI's two areas of focus, historically has been the interest of hundreds of individuals long before SCI was established.


As a hunter, you know well that the right and freedom to hunt is under attack, and you want to protect that freedom. SCI is one of the most powerful pro-hunting and pro-conservation organizations in the world, and works tirelessly on the behalf of hunters. Members stay involved with state legislative and regulatory issues; with federal plans that affect management, conservation, and hunting access on public lands; as well as national legislative issues. There is strength in numbers, and SCI would not be able to make significant changes without supporters like you– united in the same fight.
