We are a national organization dedicated to keeping our hunting heritage alive. With the help of our tireless volunteers, we seek out those with a spark of desire to learn about hunting and strive to give them their first experiences that will develop into a lifelong passion for the outdoors. We know from research that giving youth outdoor experiences will enhance their physical and mental health and they will pass on these values to their own families.
Are you passionate about what we're doing? Let us know! We are always looking for mentors to help us make our vision a reality. We'll help you find a way to volunteer that best suits you. We're excited to have you join the team!
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
Files coming soon.
Thanks for checking out the First Hunt Foundation (FHF). I'm Rick Brazell, hunter, founder and President of the Foundation. Hopefully you feel the same way I do about hunting. FHF believes the heritage of hunting in the United States is a vital part of the culture and the American experience. We recognize that many have no desire or interest to hunt, but we feel strongly that even those folks need to understand the important role hunting plays in the lives of millions of their fellow citizens. Oftentimes misunderstanding or simple lack of knowledge about hunting causes some to find fault with hunters and the agencies managing wildlife and regulating hunting activities. Our mission is to keep the hunting heritage alive in America.
For many of us, hunting is a natural part of our lives. We enjoy spending time in the woods pursuing game, hanging out with family and friends and more importantly passing those unique skills on to the next generation. Unfortunately, there are thousands of youth and other interested people who would love to learn hunting skills, but literally have no opportunity. They have no support group, no family members or friends that can help them have that first hunting experience. They likewise are missing out on the known physical and mental health benefits provided by being in the outdoors and harvesting your own food. That's where FHF comes in. We hope to provide qualified, background checked mentors so all who have a desire to learn about hunting can have that opportunity. We believe a mentor based program can reach 1,000's each year across the nation. We hope and pray you choose to be a part of this important effort. The difference you will make in a new hunter's life will create memories for a lifetime and shore up the support for hunting for future generations. Happy Hunting!
