I wanted to reach out personally to say that your SCI family is thinking of you as we all navigate the uncharted waters brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.  As a member of SCI, you are our backbone and we rely on you to carry out our shared mission – to promote and protect our hunting heritage. Although our day-to-day lives may be altered during these unprecedented times, our commitment to fight for OUR way of life will not waver.  Whether it’s dealing with canceled hunts (hunters, professional hunters, guides, outfitters and operators alike), or kids home from school, we are all adapting to the realities we face during this pandemic. But at the same time, SCI remains focused on attacks that can and will still arise. The anti-hunters never let a crisis go to waste – just listen to Joe Biden threatening to shut down hunting over the weekend.
 Even now, during times like these, SCI members must remain vigilant. Hunters have asked what they can do while isolated in their homes. The answer is to stay engaged. First and foremost, we are a family so let’s look out for one another. As a member of SCI, you have already shown leadership and a passion for protecting our hunting heritage. In addition, please consider helping in the following ways: 1. If you hear of abuses to our hunting rights in your area, please let us know as we continue to work on your behalf. If you haven’t already, please sign up for the Hunter Advocacy Action Center. This important tool allows our members to help us defend hunting through any circumstance right from the comfort of their home. Click the link below to sign up. 2. Please consider renewing or upgrading your membership. It’s also a great time to gift an SCI membership to a family member or fellow hunter. 3. Please consider supporting Safari Club International FoundationSCI-PAC or the Hunter Action Fund. As we all work together through these challenging times, your support is crucial. We can and will continue to lead the fight to protect your freedom to hunt worldwide. The anti-hunting crowd hopes we struggle – so let’s show them our resolve by proudly supporting Safari Club International! May God bless you and your families,  – W.
