The Big Game Hunters Foundation

The Object and Purpose of the Big Game Hunters is to actively promote good sportsmanship and fraternity among other Big Game Hunters; to promote hunting and shooting sports and foster principles of conservation and the perpetuation of wildlife; to aid Game and Conservation Commisions in their efforts to conserve, propagate and protect wildlife...

The funds raised with the 52 Gun Raflle will help the Big Game Hunters with these goals and this couldn’t happen without you.

Thank you so much for your support!

Where the Money Goes!!
In the past decade we have had nine fundraisers. Those fundraisers have allowed us to donate nearly a quarter of a million dollars to help support youth and wildlife conservation programs. This past year donations were made to fifteen different organizations, totaling $23,800.00. The majority of the funds went towards shooting sports programs for youths, followed by wildlife conservation and youth archery programs.
