Venery started in 2017 because we found that new hunters, especially people who are taking up hunting as adults, learn best when they have both experienced mentors and supportive peers.

Our Reasons for Being:

  • share our Knowledge and Experience
  • harvest Local Food
  • participate in Wildlife Conservation
  • create an Inclusive Community
  • promote Fair Chase Ethics
  • teach Self-sufficiency
  • support Accessibility
