Benefit Statement

April 1, 2013 

The African American Hunting Association (AAHA) has adopted an aggressive plan to increase the number of African American Hunters in the United States by 25 percent (25%) in the next 5 years. The U. S Fish and Wildlife Service estimates that there are 13.7 million hunters in the US. Of these 400,000 or 2.9 percent are African Americans. According to the 2010 census report more than 42million African Americans are equivalent to 12% of the 308 million total population of the country. This disparity marks an opportunity for manufacturers, retailers, outdoor clubs and service providers to expand their markets.

Yes, we plan to increase the number of African American hunters by 100, 000. We will also increase awareness, interest and participation, in hunting, shooting and other outdoor sports by other people of color and urban residents throughout the country.

AAHA will develop programs to provide hunter education in the inner city to teach safe use of firearms and archery for hunting and recreation. AAHA will also sponsor fishing trips and equipment for youth and adults. We will also recruit women hunters and shooters. 

The African American Hunting Association will broadcast the AAHA Outdoor show on regional and national television to showcase African Americans hunting and fishing all throughout the US and the world. In addition to our website and social media site, we must break the color barrier in outdoor television immediately. This is an opportunity for manufacturers, retailers and outfitters to be the first to benefit from a rapid influx of first time buyers. Companies should take advantage of this chance to reach new audiences first.

We invite individuals and companies to join us by contributing and annual membership of $199. Join now for the introductory price of $100 for the 1st year. If you join, as a member you will broaden your network, sell more products or services, support conservation, and help preserve hunting rights for future generations. You will receive a quarterly newsletter updating you on all of the programs and activities.
