Safari Wish Hunt
One of the major initiatives of the Northeast Michigan Chapter has been the Safari Wish program. This program is designed to provide hunting opportunities to those individuals (primarily youth) who, because of personal health, physical abilities or other limitations, would not otherwise be able to hunt. Over the last several years, the Chapter has been able to provide hunting opportunities for sixteen individuals.
These special opportunities have included hunts at the Drettmann Ranch near Bellaire, Jack Pine Safaris near Lewiston, Anschuetz Whitetail Way in Ossineke, a Lake Huron fishing trip with Captain Ed Retherford, and, out-of-State hunting trips with Table Mountain Outfitters in Wyoming, Double D Outfitters in Montana, Tuff Ayers Outfitters in Alberta, Canada and Eagle Ridge Outfitters in Linn, Missouri.
Sportsmen Against Hunger
Area Meat Processors and the Northeast Michigan Chapter of Safari Club International have joined forces to help feed the people in our communities! The Northeast Michigan Chapter pays for the processing and delivers the meat to area soup kitchens, shelters and families.
The Northeast Michigan Chapter of SCI has sponsored a program called “Michigan Heroes” since 2008. Michigan Heroes is designed to recognize individuals from Northeast Michigan who have served our country in the Middle East.
