The O.F.F. Mission is to pair people with special needs with people with special talents and form a bond in the outdoors that will last forever! This is to be accomplished through quality activities that are safe, education and fun for all!


Outdoor Friends Forever is a non-profit organization founded in 2010 by Jim Hardy to provide outdoor opportunities to people with special needs. The organization hosts multiple events throughout the year including hunting and fishing weekends. The family of each hunter is encouraged to attend the weekend events.


O.F.F Family Hunting Weekends are a great time for the whole family!  Children get a chance to learn more about the outdoors and the skill of hunting.  Each weekend includes lodging, meals, snacks, many activities such as hunter education, skeet shooting, target practice and a deer hunt for a chance at the trophy whitetail deer of your dreams!


O.F.F Family Fishing Weekends are unique in that they allow the whole family to learn and fish.  We hope to teach the family and child how to fish so they can return home and find a place to fish as a family.  Each fishing weekend also includes lodging, meals, snacks, fish education, lure making, cooking what you catch and lots of hours fishing in a stocked lake for kids only!


If you are interested in having Jim speak at your church, corporate meeting, school or any other organization please contact Jim!
