Safari Club International (SCI) is proud to announce the hiring of Madeline Demaske to join SCI’s team of staff attorneys as Litigation Associate. SCI’s legal team is active in courts across the country and is critical to SCI’s mission of defending the freedom to hunt. In this new role, Madeline will provide legal services for litigation and other legal matters, researching litigation, regulation, and policy and providing support across SCI legal advocacy.
Madeline was born and raised in the foothills of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Her passion for hunting and the outdoors developed at a young age and has become a driving factor in her legal career. Madeline’s love for the mountains took her to Montana State University where she received undergraduate honors degrees in Agriculture Business and Applied Economics. Madeline continued her education at the University of Kansas where she graduated with a Juris Doctor in May 2021 and became a licensed attorney in the state of Colorado soon after. Since, she has been dedicating her time to the mass denial of Tajikistan Marco Polo Argali import permits, as she has a ram stuck overseas herself. As an avid hunter and conservationist, Madeline offers a unique perspective to wildlife and hunting-related legal issues.
Madeline is excited to join Safari Club International as a litigation associate to combine her passion for hunting and conservation with her skills as an attorney to fight for hunting. “Safari Club International is doing something few others are – they are pursuing legal action to protect hunters and promote conservation,” Madeline said. “Who wouldn’t want to use their education to join up with such a powerhouse to protect the thing you hold near and dear?”
SCI’s EVP of International, Government and Public Affairs stated, “SCI’s efforts in the courts on behalf of all hunters is unmatched. As the challenges faced by hunters, habitat and wildlife grow, we are excited to have Madeline join and strengthen our legal team.”
