Benefits Of Safari Club International

By John Whipple, SCI President

There are so many benefits to being a member of SCI that it is difficult to list them all in one short article. It is the incredible breadth and depth of the SCI experience that separates it from other organizations in the outdoor world. First, of course, are the basic member benefits that include:

General Membership

Your Safari Club International membership gives you access to an array of events, information sources and products that help you maximize your hunting experiences. Member Benefits include:

Optional benefits available to members:

SCI’s Annual Hunter’s Convention is a Members-only event, and just one of the many benefits of joining SCI.

Members-only Insurance Discounts.

Guns: Protects your Firearms and accessories from loss and damage, worldwide, 24/7.

Trophies: This unique program insures your Trophy Collection against theft and damage while providing the necessary funds to re-hunt the animal.

Travel Protection: Insures you against Financial Loss from trip complications beyond your control, plus medical insurance and an emergency Medical Evacuation guarantee.

Guides & Outfitters Protection: This program has been designed by SCI’s long time insurance consultants in order to provide specialized insurance coverage for the unique risks faced by hunting guides.

Chapter membership is among the most important benefits for many of us, because chapters provide the face-to-face camaraderie that literally brings home the critical missions of SCI.

It is at the Chapter level that each of us can personally make a big and direct difference. It is where we work on meaningful projects and where we meet to celebrate the hunting traditions.

Recently, SCI has begun to reach out even more than before by aligning ourselves with other organizations in the outdoor industry. These other organizations are called Affiliates, and to date we have 77 Affiliate organizations that, when combined with the SCI membership, represent a total of almost 9 million hunters and friends of hunters worldwide. Our influence is growing.

This is a significant number by any measure, and one that adds impact in the various social and political circles when SCI speaks for you, its members, and all other hunters in the world.

SCI is the finest group of hunters the world has ever known. Please join me in getting the word out about the fantastic things that we are all able to do together.

Tell your friends and fellow hunters about SCI and feel free to use the information above to start the conversation. The more that people know about SCI, the better we look to them, and the better we look, the more they will understand that they also need to be a part of this fantastic organization.

Indeed, SCI is local, regional, statewide, nationwide and worldwide. SCI is everywhere. Be proud. Let us all tell the world about this great organization and take pride in our membership. As members, we are all special. Thank you for your support of the organization and its critical missions.

Coming Soon…

I wanted to give SCI Members a “head’s up” about a new and exciting product we’ll be bringing online soon–My Hunt ReportTM is the source for the reports, photos and videos from SCI Members that help you choose the best outfitters for the best hunting trophies and experiences!

My Hunt ReportTM is planned as a searchable database for reports filed by SCI Members on outfitters, guides and hunting conditions around the world. All SCI Members will be encouraged to participate, and those who do will be rewarded with a one-stop place to store the photos and videos relating to their hunts for everyone to see.

Here are just some of the features we envision from My Hunt ReportTM:

  • Hunting conditions as told by fellow SCI Members.
  • Your hunting photos and videos.
  • Your trophies, records and awards.
  • Access from any computer, tablet, or Smartphone anywhere in the world.
This is only a mock-up for conceptual purposes, but it shows just some of the features we envision to help you share your success stories and make new ones.

With My Hunt ReportTM , search for last-minute hunting opportunities, or really drill down and plan the ultimate adventure.  Show your trophies and hunting videos to other members—even on the Convention floor.  Find where the biggest trophies are coming from, and what outfitter will put you on them. Get ideas for your trophy room.

We’re working hard to bring this to you soon. In the meantime, please be thinking of your notable hunts, and any exciting video or exceptional trophies you want others to see in your personal My Hunt ReportTM. Stay tuned for more information including contacts and how to have your own My Hunt ReportTM .
