Fishing and Hunting Organizations [List]

11

When considering the types of charities an often overlooked subgroup of Animal Charities is the Hunting and Fishing Organizations.  These are primarily member based organizations that seek to serve as advocacy groups for sportsmen (hunters, trappers, or fishermen). Game and habitat conservation typically are part of the missions of hunting and fishing organizations as well, as it is important to ensure that there remain healthy populations of game for future generations.  There are a couple of broad-based fishing and hunting organizations but you will notice that most tend to specialize around a particular game type.

    suggest adding Mule Deer Foundation to your list of top hunting supported non-profits. Great group, high percent towards mission and mule deer are one of the most vulnerable hunting species today. – Cheers, Kenn

    Great list, Craig! You might want to check out Backcountry Hunters and Anglers at backcountryhunters.org. They are a fine organization, adding chapters nationwide and furthering conservation efforts. Nice Backcountry Journal they publish for members. The Sportmen’s Voice . . . Take care and thanks! Nat

    Hello guys

    My name is Stephen Sutherland and I am a professional hunter in South Africa.
    I have many hunts for client at great prices. I sell hunting Safaris in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. You are welcome to go look at our FB page “Sutherland Safaris”. I would very much appreciate help regarding hunting groups on fb where I can advertise these hunting safaris ? We have been outfitters since 1993.

    Regards from Africa
    Steve
