Thanks to the Missouri Hunting Heritage Federation, I am confident that my daughter and I will enjoy hunting together for many years to come. We are both better prepared and can share a deeper appreciation of the hunting experience.

Introducing Youth to Hunting

The Missouri Hunting Heritage Federation (MHHF) is a service-oriented organization of volunteers who are passionate about Missouri’s hunting history. MHHF introduces youth to an outdoor way of life featuring our hunting tradition, the shooting sports and the enjoyment of being in Missouri’s natural landscape.

Our members organize activities and work to support hunter education initiatives without regard for individual benefit or compensation. We take pride in Missouri’s hunting tradition regardless of method and strive to preserve this heritage for future generations.

Through education and hands-on training, youth learn how to safely handle firearms, gain an understanding of wildlife conservation and are introduced to the many enjoyable aspects of our hunting heritage.


Our Mission

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.

Our Purpose

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.
