Public lands are a big part of my life, and the work that BHA does to fight for it matters. I'm fundraising to help BHA grow and continue to be the baddest group of conservationists on the planet!

$3,090.00

I'm a Gerber Badassador, and through their support want to help raise funds for the Backcountry Hunters and Anglers. Public lands are incredibly important to hiking, hunting and fishing, and by working together we can ensure access to these important landscapes in the future for all.

I am a thru-hiker with over 11,000 miles hiked all over the country, and like to say my favorite trail is the one I haven't hiked yet.

Im fundraising money for BHA so we, as an organization can continue to expand protection for public lands throughout North America and influence legislation to better protect the interests of hunters in Pennsylvania and beyond. One really great thing they are working on is to remove the PA ban on Sunday hunting which will open up opportunities for a lot of hunters like myself who work during the week. 

I used to hike a lot recreationally. Mt. Washington, Mt. Katahdin, and others, but now I tend to only hike while I am hunting, scouting, or looking for antler sheds. Im looking forward to putting in a lot of miles these next 2 months. At the end of July, I aim to finish off the fundraiser with a portion (or all) of the Presidential Traverse in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. 

My goal for this campaign is 150 miles, but I hope to stride even farther. 

I am Pennsylvanian and lifelong outdoorsman who has only recently gotten into hunting. It's changed my life in such a great way and I look forward to decades of enjoyment in the outdoors harvesting game.

Because public lands are very important to me, from a very young age I have fished and hunted on them. Some of my greatest outdoors adventures/ memories where with my dad on public lands. I’m going to hike anyways, so why not raise some money and help out when I can. It's for a great organization and a great cause.

I support BHA because they are THE organization making sure I have access to public lands and waters and the fish and wildlife habitat when I get there. The winter and travel have been good to me...or not so good and its time to get in shape.
