AUGUST 2022 ANNOUNCEMENT

On August 23, 2022, Hunters for BC made some significant changes. A majority vote was received by our members in favour of dissolving our affiliation with Safari Club International.  We thank everyone for their participation and making their vote count for us to become an independent British Columbia Society – Hunters for BC.

The board is now working on updates and restructuring for our society as we move forward.  This transition will take some time as we revise individual committees accordingly.

Membership will be a very simple transition.

  1. ALL current Hunters for BC / SCI chapter members will automatically have their current memberships honoured and carried forward to the new society – Hunters for BC.  This applies to all 1 year, 3 year and Life Members. 
  2. Anyone wishing to buy a new membership or renew can do so on our website here:  MEMBERSHIP
  3. Anyone wishing to OPT-OUT of membership with Hunters for BC can do so here:  OPT-OUT

Membership fees are largely unchanged with the exception of Life Membership offered for $1,000.  Directors are hard at work developing some member benefits and we will update you going forward.

  • 1-Year New Members – $50
  • 1-Year Renewing Members – $65
  • 3-Year Memberships – $150
  • Life Memberships – $1,000

Our fundraising efforts this year have been fantastic and a very big thank you to all sponsors, donors, and partners!  The fall and winter of 2022 will see some incredible fundraisers being launched by Hunters for BC.  Stay Tuned!
