Whether it is a competition, community program or grassroots activism — we encourage you to be involved and continue spreading the word!
The Make A First movement exists to tell the stories, celebrate the heritage, and inspire new passions for the outdoors. Firing that first gun, stargazing from a campsite, signing your hunting license, setting the hook on a fish – these are all “firsts” to be celebrated and stories to be told. Help make someone's first and share your story today.
