Who We Are…
The Southern Sportsmen Foundation is a group of enthusiasts who want to share our love for the outdoors with people who have disabilities, including children and veterans. Our supporters believe that in the world of hunting, there is room for people of all abilities. We are dedicated to raising funds to help provide exceptional outdoor activities for people who have missed out on the kinds of experiences that can provide memories and enjoyment for a lifetime.
The Southern Sportsmen Foundation is a non-profit organization based in Foreman, Arkansas. The foundation is a spin-off organization of a local chapter of the Buckmasters American Deer Foundation (BADF), which includes participants from Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, and Oklahoma. That organization, formed in 1998 after founders realized a need to provide hunting opportunities for the disabled, has fulfilled many hunting wishes for children and young adults.
Since forming in 2004, SSF has sponsored over 200 men, women & kids with disabilities from all over the US. The generous support of businesses and individuals has helped hunters from more than a dozen states across America take part in exceptional hunting excursions. Consider supporting us as a Platinum, Gold or Silver level sponsor. For more information, contact us.
The foundation works closely with the outdoor and wildlife departments of each state. We support their efforts to ensure the protection, conservation and preservation of our natural resources.

“They want to be treated like ordinary hunters. That’s what we do.”
