Safari Club International

Safari Club International is the largest pro-active hunting and conservation organization in the world. Founded in 1971, SCI has grown to over 50,000 members in 195 chapters in 37 countries. Many Members travel throughout the world in pursuit of their hunting ambitions, while others focus on hunting locally. Their common bond remains the love of hunting, the protection of our right to hunt, and wildlife conservation.

SCI provides legislative advice, financial aid and hunter education to ensure future hunting opportunities and wildlife resources for our youth. SCI provides funding to conduct research, re-introduce species to their former range and assist in anti-poaching efforts.

While SCI is involved on many fronts to protect hunting and wildlife, it also involved in humanitarian aid projects. For more information on these projects visit SCI.

Thank you for your interest in Safari Club International’s Badgerland Chapter.

The Badgerland Chapter started in 1987 with 25 dedicated founding members. Five still serve on the board and the 14 new directors keep us popping with new ideas. Most of the original founders are still active chapter members. The reason for our success is from them and our great members.
