Become an SCI Member
Safari Club International welcomes new members to help in the fight to protect hunting and to conserve wildlife around the world. By joining SCI, you support both hunting and conservation. As a member, you're brought together with other like-minded hunters and you receive an exclusive array of benefits. These benefits include discounts on products and services, as well as insider news and other information that is not available anywhere else.
Once you are a member of SCI, you can find and join an official chapter. Find the nearest chapter to you by searching our Chapter Locator. Chapters support the missions of SCI and help in their own localities. They raise money and provide services right in their own backyards and around the world by conducting hands-on conservation projects, education activities and humanitarian efforts.

Why should I consider a membership in Safari Club International?
Hunters know 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. SCI works tirelessly on 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 with national legislative issues. There is strength in numbers. SCI could not make such significant changes without supporters such as you – united in the same fight.
There is an array of benefits that you will receive as a member of Safari Club International, including the bi-monthly, full-color SAFARI Magazine. Members also are invited to attend the annual SCI Convention — The Ultimate Hunters’ Market™. Associated sponsors offer additional benefits and discounts on everything from travel insurance to hunting gear. Visit the benefits page for a full list.
How does becoming a member of an international organization help support my local community?
Dedicated to the overall mission of the organization, SCI's more than-170 chapters raise money to implement the mission of SCI right in their own backyards. The majority of all funds raised by a Chapter are used in ways that the Chapter members choose. In addition, Chapter members are active in their communities — organizing and working on humanitarian, conservation and educational efforts, and inviting others in their community to join in these efforts.
Use the Chapter Locator to find your area chapter. Contact the president or membership coordinator nearest you to find out about attending the next meeting.
The SCI Record Book program has documented SCI members’ hunting heritage since 1977. The SCI Online Record Book of Big Game Animals uses SCI’s unique, all-inclusive scoring system, which is the most used in the world. The Online Record Book is utilized by SCI members as a networking tool and guide to achieving SCI World Hunting Awards and personal hunting goals.Learn More
