Who We Are
Welcome to the official website of the Missouri Hunting Heritage Federation (MHHF/Federation).
MHHF is a service-oriented Federation of volunteer Members, Sponsors and Group Affiliates who are passionate about our hunting heritage. Our Members experience the personal satisfaction of introducing newcomers to an outdoor way of life featuring a hunting tradition handed down from past generations, the shooting sports, and the enjoyment of being in Missouri's natural landscape. We especially enjoy sharing these experiences with the youth.
MHHF Members organize activities and work to support hunter education initiatives without regard for individual benefit or compensation. Our Members take pride in the hunting tradition regardless of method, and we strive to preserve this heritage for future generations. With a focus on continuing the use of hunting as an essential component of the North American Model for Wildlife Conservation, we desire to propagate safe hunting practices, the ethics of fair chase, and a respect for and the appreciation of wildlife.
The purpose of the Federation shall be to perpetuate our hunting heritage by promoting a safe and ethical participation in hunting and in the shooting sports.
This shall be accomplished by delivering a course of instruction in hunter education, which includes the safe handling of firearms, scientific research-based wildlife conservation, and an introduction to hunting, while improving the professional skills of volunteer hunter education instructors.
Said organization is organized exclusively for charitable, educational, and scientific purposes, including, for such purposes, the making of distributions to organizations that qualify as exempt organizations under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, or corresponding section of any future federal tax code.
The mission of the Federation shall be to work in concert with similar minded entities to enhance the Missouri hunter education program by striving to ensure the continuation of the hunting tradition.
