As a mentor for the First Hunt Foundation, I will follow and teach all appropriate State Fish and Game regulations regarding the species hunted. I will practice fair chase and teach clean kill techniques and will teach subsistence principles for harvested animals to be consumed. I will hold myself to the highest ethical standards while hunting and avoid any practices that might appear unusual or offensive to other hunters or the non-hunting public. I will strive to make the First Hunt experience for those I mentor fun and enjoyable and will do everything within my power to make the experience safe so they may strive to return to the field for additional hunting opportunities. I will accept no compensation from mentees or their parents or guardians.
The First Hunt Foundation has mentors scattered across the nation in 24 states. The map below shows their locations and by clicking on the individual flags, you can get contact information for them. First, see if a mentor is close to you and then contact them to see if they can help. Our mentors are volunteers and many take on multiple mentees filling up their time quickly. FHF appreciates their service and we hope you do too. Happy hunting!
Working with the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Torstenson Family Endowment & Outdoors International, First Hunt Foundation is seeking successful first time hunters to award them a certificate of appreciation. It’s our way of congratulating them for choosing to be a hunter and successfully completing a milestone in their hopefully long hunting career. Each is species specific so whether the new hunter harvested an elk or a rabbit, we want to celebrate with them. We will award these as long as supplies and funding lasts. The successful hunter need not have participated in a FHF mentored hunt to receive a certificate. Fill out the form below to apply for your no cost certificate.
