A Vision for Backcountry Conservation

Our freedom to hunt and fish depends on wild places.

Now, more than ever before, we need wild lands: places to rekindle the fire at the heart of the human soul.

Backcountry Hunters & Anglers is a nonpartisan group of sporting and outdoor enthusiasts who value the traditions and heritage our wild lands, waters and wildlife sustain, and stand up for these places and for the outdoor opportunities they represent.

Our power and influence to conserve what we love lies in our numbers. When we speak up in support of wild lands and waters, we stand with all our members behind us. With your help, Backcountry Hunters & Anglers will continue to grow as a force for our wild lands, waters, wildlife, and the kind of authentic backcountry experience we are determined to pass on to future generations.
