Today’s world is filled with indoor activities for our youth – Cubs is one of the best ways to get outdoors with your youngster or a friend and neighbor. You will not only be helping that youngster to have a good time but you will be introducing him or her to a lifetime of great experiences.

Cubs are young hunters (16 and under) and are eligible for many aspects of SCI competition, including listing in the SCI Record Book of Trophy Animals.

Our local Cubs members have the opportunity to meet four or more times a year for hunter safety training and to practice shooting along with other scheduled activities.

  • To help conservation efforts by supporting worthwhile projects, both verbally and financially, when possible.

  • To educate our youth in safe and proper use of firearms and to teach them about conservation and preservation of the forests and animals, which are our national heritage.

  • To share the latest hunting experiences and information of our members so that other members may benefit from them.

  • To operate the association as a non-profitable organization, originated for the enjoyment of members.
