Hunters Dream 31 Day Raffle December 2014 - Click to see Prize List

The Georgia Hunting and Fishing Federation is a grassroots organization that is committed to promoting the outdoor sports. Founded in September 2003 hunters and fishermen from all over Georgia organized and held a rally in Blackshear, GA. with nearly 5000 folks in attendance. From this start GHFF has formed local chapters all over the state. The GHFF has worked with the legislation and DNR to preserve and protect some age old hunting traditions and to implement some changes to improve hunting and encourage kids to get involved in outdoor sports. The GHFF Expo is held each year to promote awareness of our organization and expose the public to the latest equipment and opportunities available in the great outdoors.

Sportsman's Pantry

Donate A Deer And Feed The Hungry

Its as easy as that. Step up and make a difference.

There is a program that now, in its fourth season, is beginning to gain real traction and it is a winner for sportsmen processors and our communities.

The program is called Sportsman's Pantry, and it functions under the oversight of four sportsman's groups, GON Network, Georgia Hunting & Fishing Federation, SafariClub International, and Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry.

But the groups are not the important story here. The real story is sportsmen like you finding a way to do what we all want done, and doing it better than it has ever been done before in Georgia, and doing it where you live and hunt.

The aim of the program is to bring together three groups at the local level. Those groups are:

 hunters willing do donate a deer to those in need,
 processors will do the work at a reduced price, and
 local approved charities who can accept the processed venison.
