The Pennsylvania Chapter of BHA was established in the spring of 2014 and represents a diverse and enthusiastic group of outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen who seek to protect and improve wild places in the Keystone State and beyond.
Our chapter was the proud recipient of the 2020 George Bird Grinnell Award from BHA North America. The awardhonors the outstanding BHA chapter of the year.
We are an informed and engaged group of hunters and anglers who value the challenge, peace and solitude that comes from a backcountry experience, whether that be true Wilderness or the nearby Game Land or stream.
As an all-volunteer grassroots group, the Pennsylvania Chapter of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers works to promote, conserve and improve our diverse public lands and stand up for these resources when they are threatened.
We work to maintain and improve access for hunting and fishing, both at home and across North America.
We stand by rigorous science and the best practices it prescribes for wild landscapes and fish and wildlife management.
While we all want to enjoy the best hunting, fishing and outdoor experiences possible in our lifetimes, we consider it our duty to think beyond today and do our best to leave our land and wildlife resources improved for future generations.
In short, we are working to leave it better than we found it.
Join us now to make the Pennsylvania Chapter of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers stronger and more effective!
