Welcome to the Arizona Chapter of the Hunt Of A Lifetime Foundation website.

   "Hunt Of A Lifetime" is a nonprofit organization with a mission to grant hunting & fishing adventures and dreams for children age 21 and under, who have been diagnosed with life threatening illnesses.

   On these pages you will find pictures and stories of some very special kids and the people who are reaching out to help them realize these outdoor dreams. I am truly amazed at the generosity the outdoor community displays when we come together for a common cause. Thanks to this generosity we've had three successful seasons which saw 26 youngsters realizing their dreams. This was accomplished, in large part, due to the new legislation in place that allows hunters who have successfully drawn a tag in Arizona, to donate it to a non profit 501(c)(3) organization, dedicated to providing outdoor opportunities, for use by a minor child. If you have a tag you would like to donate to our program just click on the “Donate a Tag” link at the left and complete the form you will find on that page. Then mail it into us along with your tag and we will work to match a child up with it.

   Reflecting back on the last 3 seasons it's truly amazing to see where we started and where we are today. Our 2007 season saw our program placing 13 children on 15 different hunts....... Amazing!!!

   None of this would have been possible without the help of each and every person who stepped up to the plate to help out. From those who have donated tags to those who volunteered to help in the camps, every one of you have helped make a difference in the life of a child who otherwise would not have had the opportunity to fulfill their dream of a lifetime. We have been truly blessed to have had the opportunity to work with the cream of the crop in guides and outfitters. These guides and outfitters have taken our kids into the field and sent them home with world class hunting experiences that exceed all expectations.

   This last season was one of forming partnerships with the local conservation groups and they stepped up in spades. The Arizona Deer Association, The Arizona Desert Bighorn Sheep Society, The Arizona Antelope Foundation, The Arizona Bowhunters Association, the Mohave Sportsman Club, the Arizona Elk Society, the Mogollon Sporting Association and the Chandler Rod and Gun Club all contributed to the success and growth of our program. As they have been from the beginning, the Arizona Game and Fish Department continues to be one of our programs biggest supporters and I hope each of you had the chance to attend the Game and Fish Expo in March. If not definitely make plans to attend next year.

   This year will also mark the second time the Arizona Antelope Foundation has partnered with Hunt Of A Lifetime at their Annual Banquet. The Antelope Foundation donated $5.00 from every ticket sold last year and matched it with an additional $5.00 which provided Samantha MacDonald, and others, with their Hunt of a Lifetime. You can read her story in our "Meet Our Hunters" section of the website.

   The Arizona Antelope Foundation's 5th Annual Fundraising Banquet will be held this year on July 19, 2008 at the El Zaribah Shrine in Phoenix. If you've ever attended one of their banquets you will be able to attest that it is one of the best. This year they will also be hosting the drawing of the Arizona Super Raffle Tickets. This is a fantastic opportunity to support Hunt Of A Lifetime, the Arizona Antelope Foundation, the Arizona Game and Fish Department, and Arizona wildlife, with the purchase of one banquet ticket. What a deal!!

   Thanks again to each and every one of you who have participated with our program and keep an eye on our website as another year of fulfilling dreams comes together.

   We are making a difference in these youngsters’ lives by making their dreams come true.

   Thank You,

Attention Hunt Of A Lifetime Supporters

It has come to our attention that there has been a annual dove hunt in Wickenburg that is to benefit Hunt Of A Lifetime over the course of the last three years, and out of those three years. we have only seen proceeds from the first year. Hunt Of A Lifetime has not granted permission to use its name for this purpose over the last two years and will not do so in the future. If you have any questions weather or not an event you are participating in does in fact have a direct correlation with Hunt Of A Lifetime, please feel free to contact us to validate the authenticity of the event you are participating in. Thank you for your cooperation.
