It is time to mention yet another wonderful raffle hosted by @raffleready. The DSC Frontline Foundation is raffling off a once in a lifetime Dangerous Game Safari!
The mission of the DSC Frontline Foundation is to provide financial relief to professional hunters and their assistants, trackers and skinners who are killed or seriously injured in the course of providing professional hunting services. The individuals we seek to help are often on the frontline of hunts and therefore exposed to the dangers inherent in hunting. These same individuals are unlikely to have adequate, or any, health insurance. They are unlikely to have life insurance or disability coverage. As a result, a serious injury has the potential to be even more devastating to these folks than to most of the rest of us. The death of a primary breadwinner could have equally dire consequences for most of the people we seek to help.
The DSC Frontline Foundation recognizes that for many hunters the quality of the adventure is due in large part to the quality and experience of the guide or outfitter. This is particularly true in the case of international hunting adventures and big game trips. It is critical to have guides and outfitters (and assistants) who have experience, and gaining that experience often involves working under harsh and dangerous conditions. With experience comes increased risk of serious injury or death.
In order to provide some relief for injuries or some compensation for the survivors of those who are killed, and to help insure that those who are injured can return to professional hunting the Foundation desires to establish a fund from which distributions to qualified individuals can be made.
