Hello, my name is Zach Goodheart and I’m the Wish Hunt Director for the Flint Chapter of the Safari Club International. First, I want to say thank you to all of our faithful members and donors of SCI Flint for your faithful generosity. It is because of you that our Club has this program and I have the amazing opportunity to meet these young men and woman as our Club sets them up for the hunt of a lifetime.
The goal of our Wish Hunt program is to help members in our community share the love and experience of hunting that most of us may take for granted. Whether from a disability, illness, accident, or the like, not everyone can freely access our wonderful outdoors like they want to and that’s where SCI Flint steps in to help. With efforts from our members and outfitters across the county, we’ve been able to send many hunters off to a hunting experience like none other.
Now, I may be a bit bias, but I think this is one of the best things our club does for hunters. Conservation aside, this program has been making dreams a reality for so many people who may have never had the chance to experience what so many of us do. And it’s so much more than big trophies: I’m talking about camp fires, scouting, and the hunt camp atmosphere! The smiles from that make a successful trip on its own.
How you can help:
Become a member! A strong membership is the foundation to this program. The more we grow, the bigger this program becomes and the more people we can help.
Recommend a Wish Hunter! We are always looking to meet new candidates. If you know someone who may be a qualifying candidate please do not hesitate to contact me and see how we can help.
Become a donor! Many of our members and businesses in the community donate to this amazing program. Whether it is a monetary donation or an item to auction at one of our events, every penny helps!
Attend our annual fundraiser! Every year, the first hunt our Club auctions off is a first-class hunt paired with a new hunting rifle. 100% of the funds from this auction go directly to the Wish Hunt program. What better way to go on a hunt of a life time than knowing it’s funding the hunts of other hunters at the same time!
Thank you again for all of your help and support to our program. Please feel free to reach out to me at any time. Best of luck and shoot straight!
