We are a non-profit organization that provides education and training for acquiring hunting skills. We strive to be the largest youth mentoring organization that teaches hunting.

Lifelong Passion

With the help of our tireless volunteers, we seek out those who have a desire to learn about hunting and strive to give them their first experience, which can go on to develop into a life-long passion for the outdoors. Our mentors love the outdoors and want to do everything they can to help "Keep the Hunting Heritage Alive."

Becoming the Nation’s Premier New Hunter Mentoring Organization

We have experienced a recent growth in business with over 500 mentors joining our cause. They are all thorough professionals. They are also background checked. Every one of our prospective mentors needs to pass a criminal background check and should agree to a ‘Mentor’s Creed’, to participate in our programs.

Our Mentors

The First Hunt Foundation's main emphasis is on mentoring new hunters. Mentor-based experiences can develop life-long skills and a passion for hunting. This support for hunting can be passed on to future generations of new hunters. If you are passionate about what we are doing, do let us know! We are looking for mentors to help us make our vision a reality.

President’s Corner

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. 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!
