Hike to Hunt supports BHA's public land advocacy, but it also motivates and inspires the individual to get out and enjoy our public lands. It is fun and rewarding.

Public lands are incredibly important to me. They have afforded me many opportunities that would have otherwise been impossible after my move to WI.  I want to give back. I want to help preserve access to these places I hold dear and continue to improve myself in the process.

I'm fundraising the Hike to Hunt Challenge because I believe in the availability and accessibility of public lands. Federally designated Wilderness areas are as remote as they are beautiful, and make up just a fraction of our public lands. They represent the wildest and untrammeled lands we have left, and should be protected to the fullest extent possible while allowing visitors on foot or stock.

I'm an IT Security guy for the DoD who spends most of his time while not at work in the outdoors. From chasing trout to grouse to foraging I'm in love with it all.

We need to preserve the ability to get away from crowded cities and busy schedules.  Only the large expanses of public lands are big enough to let you truly get away.

I am fundraising for Hike to Hunt because it's one way that I can help support the public lands that I do so much of my hunting on.  It's also a great way to stay in shape for the coming hunting season.

Conserving our nation's public lands and wildlife is a deeply personal issue for me. I've taken advantage of millions of acres of our public land system, starting at a very young age, through a variety of non-motorized recreational activities. The wildlife present on those lands (from insects to birds to elk) makes the land itself come to life and enriches the experience of anyone fortunate enough venture off the beaten path. Hunters in general and BHA specifically contribute in substantive, meaningful ways to the canservation of wildlife and our public land system, and "Hike to Hunt" is one way in which BHA increases awareness of these issues while raising the much-needed funds to fight for them.

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.

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!

I'm fundraising for this cause because I've had so many opportunities in life made possible by public lands.  Growing up, my family wasn't wealthy so I spent a lot of time hunting PA State Game Lands, state park lands, and private farmland.  As farmland availability diminishes, the need for healthy, publicly accessible land is more important than ever, and this is one way I can do my part so that future generations have the same opportunities to enjoy nature.

Help support wild places, public lands, and public waters by supporting me in this year's Hike to Hunt. Any donations go to helping public lands, public wildlife, and public waters by helping BHA. Even if you don't set a foot on public land, keeping these lands helps the entire earth (clean air or water important to you?). If this isn't a good enough reason, I have plenty more in detail.
