Bringing in the next generation of leaders is important if SCI and SCI Foundation are to continue growing their impact into the future. On Wednesday afternoon, January 9 SCI Foundation held its second annual Young Guns event at the Peppermill Resort. The event was hosted by C.J. and Jami Sibert, and was attended by an energetic group of up and comers, many of whom will eventually take on leadership roles In SCI and SCI Foundation, ensuring the continued viability of these groups well into the future.

“The future of hunting relies on young people getting more involved,” said SCI Foundation Executive Director Bob Benson. “Our new Young Guns group is a great way for young hunters to meet and build relationships and learn more about SCI and SCI Foundation. We look forward to seeing this new initiative grow.”

This must be the SCI answer to their aging problem....

Just curious, how old is "young" in this context?

If they’d like to offer me a job, I’d be more than happy to accept.

If all hunters are 80, all hunting will end in a few years.

I think hunting organizations in many countries have woken up to the need to get more people under 60 into hunting.

Sounds good. Unfortunately, that is not the case in many places in Europe and North America.

Here in Finland, one good news is that more women are taking up hunting.

Also, looks like bow hunting will become legal for Moose. So far, white tail has been the largest that you could legally hunt with a bow here. That might attract people in the more densely populated areas.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
