Hit the Mark endeavors to pass on the age-old legacy of encountering God through the great outdoors by giving youth and families the opportunity to experience it first-hand through hunting.
In a culture where this way of life is slowly being forgotten, it is our heartbeat to pass on the legacy of hunting - encountering God through the great outdoors - by giving youth and families the opportunity that, most likely, they would never have otherwise. Our mission is to introduce hunting and the great outdoors to kids and families that have never experienced this joy, this beauty, this way of bonding with the God who created it all. We desire to see these families encounter our Creator and to see their lives changed by this encounter while capturing this transformation on camera to share with the world. This is why we do what we do.
