Welcome to SCI Naples/Ft Myers

Who We Are

SCI is an organization representing hunters all over the world. We bring hunters of all ages together to share their hunting experiences with each other.

Our Chapter holds a number of monthly social and informative meetings at which we have speakers. We also host an annual Banquet & Auction with hunting related items and hunts that are sold in the silent and live auctions.

Our members hunt hogs, deer, turkeys, alligator, bear, elk, moose, sheep and other legal game in the US and Canada, and some of our members hunt in other countries [including Africa, where they seek antelope, cape buffalo, leopard, lion and elephant]. Several of our members hunt primarily with bow and arrow, and one has taken both lion and elephant with his Mathews 100 # bow!

There are over 120 local chapters just like our Naples-Ft. Myers Chapter around the world.
