A member of IUCN, DSC is a mission-focused conservation organization, funded by hunters from around the world. With a small administrative staff and a volunteer army of 500, DSC hosts its annual Convention that raises funds for grants in conservation, education, and advocacy. In the past three years, more than $5 million has been channeled to qualified projects, organizations, and
programs in support of our mission.
There are currently over 18,000 members of DSC. Although DSC members are largely in the U.S., members in foreign countries make up 14%, which will grow as DSC continues to advance its mission and programs into international conservation and hunting partners.
Through the DSC network, like-minded conservation groups without geographical ties to the club are eligible to seek local chapter status in order to be an influential part in achieving DSC’s vision of a society that values wildlife, engages in its conservation, and understands and supports the role of well-regulated hunting in the sustainable use of wild resources.

A member of International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), DSC is a mission-focused conservation organization, funded by hunters from around the world.
With an administrative staff of less than 15 and a volunteer army of 500, DSC hosts an annual Convention that raises funds for grants in conservation, education and advocacy.
In the past couple years, millions of dollars have been channeled to qualified projects, organizations and programs in support of that mission.
Join us in our mission of Conservation, Education, and Advocacy.
DSC funds mission-driven projects, organizations, and programs annually throughout the conservation community: desert bighorn sheep reintroduction and habitat enhancement in Texas; moose, elk, and caribou projects in British Columbia; elephant and lion projects in Africa; anti-poaching efforts abroad and many others.
Through outreach efforts and informational content that introduces shooting and science-based wildlife management to growing demographics, DSC is ensuring a legacy of well-informed future sportsmen, sportswomen and conservationists. DSC funds additional education-based programs to further this part of the mission year-round.
DSC and DSC-PAC have been very successful in defeating legislation that would severely curtail our ability to hunt and negatively affect wildlife and habitat across the globe. By providing action alerts and up-to-date news, DSC equips its members as ambassadors for sustainable use in their community.
