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!
