Ornament Arrows

**Entry deadline September 30, 2021 for the 2022 Award!**

The purpose of the Hunting Habitat Conservation Award is to recognize those foxhunting clubs, individuals and organizations that have made significant and enduring contributions towards the preservation of rural countryside and its flora and fauna.

There is no greater threat to our sport than the loss of hunting venue; no more painful loss than the serenity and peace of provided by the pastoral scene. There is no greater injustice than not to recognize those people and organizations that toil to keep us close to the land and the wild animals that enhance our very existence. We hope that you will give serious thought to sending in a nomination.

Nominee data (in accordance with the guidelines/entry form) must be provided to the MFHA Conservation Committee, care of the MFHA Office, no later than September 30, 2021.

**Resubmission of previous nominees for this award who did not win is highly encouraged!!**

In addition to the conservation trophy and recognition at the annual members meeting, the Hunting Habitat Conservation winning Hunt will receive a $5,000 cash award!


Questions concerning this award should be directed to the MFHA Office or Daphne Flowers Wood, MFH, Conservation Chairman.
