|GOLDEN STATE BOWHUNTERS CHAPTER SAFARI CLUB INTERNATIONAL|
Welcome to the Golden State Bowhunters Chapter of Safari Club International's Webpage! Please take a moment to browse the page and learn a little about our chapter. We appreciate your comments, and we will try to respond to all comments and inquires. Thank you for your interest in our chapter, and please support wildlife conservation.
Our members support wildlife conservation efforts throughout the world through the purchase of hunting licenses, permits and the payment of hunting fees. These expenditures are direct contributions, which help wildlife in their range habitat. Member dues also support wildlife conservation and hunting related programs throughout the world as Safari Club International (SCI) is a world leader in protecting hunting rights and helping range countries to develop and implement programs for the benefit of wildlife and the native human population which must share and, in many cases, compete for vital habitat. Some of SCI's many programs include:
