Protecting the Freedom to Hunt

The Pittsburgh Chapter of Safari Club International works to defend and advance the freedom to hunt. It promotes ethical hunting practices, advocates for sustainable wildlife management and embraces the role of hunting as a tool for conservation.

Join our passionate community and support the traditions and heritage of
responsible hunting and the conservation of wild things in wild places.


SCI Pittsburgh is committed to ethical hunting and its role in the conservation of both flora and fauna. Through education, and on-the-ground initiatives, SCI Pittsburgh strives to inform and encourage both hunters and nonhunters of the critical role hunting plays in the modern world. Hunters are the driving force behind conservation in North America, facilitating the recovery of dozens of game animals and helping to protect wildlife habitat across the continent. The North American Model of Conservation is entirely based on the foundation of sustainable-use hunter-conservationists. This model helps sustain and enhance biodiversity
for all to enjoy.

Protecting Your Freedom To Hunt

Hunting forces a person to endure, to master themselves, even to truly get to know the wild environment. Actually, along the way, hunting and fishing makes you fall in love with the natural world. This is why hunters so often give back by contributing to conservation.

Protecting Hunters in Pennsylvania


Advocacy means to actively support and promote a specific cause, idea or policy and influence decision-makers and or the public to take action in support of that cause. For SCI Pittsburgh and many other chapters around the world Advocating for the freedom to hunt is at the core of what we do. This includes lobbying, organizing events and even using social media to spread the message of ethical, regulated hunting as a tool for sustainable wildlife management. SCI’s team of professionals and volunteers from local chapters deliver this Advocacy message and defend the freedom to hunt at the State as well as the Federal and International levels. No one is doing more to defend your freedom to hunt and promote science-based conservation than Safari Club International. SCI is First For Hunters. Membership matters.

The Value of SCI Membership


  • SCI has given me the opportunity to surround myself with like minded people whom I regard as more than friends, I consider them part of my family. Yes, we hunt together. We’ll also meet for a cookout, lend a hand with a heavy couch, and refer each other to like minded people and businesses. I love this organization.
