Hunting

The club boast's three locally leased properties for members who wish to participate in the clubs controlled pheasant hunting program. Over past years, the club purchased pheasant chicks, taking delivery sometime in
September. The chicks were then raised in our own specially designed
pen located on the club's property. 
Unfortunately, due to the rising cost of pheasant chicks, feed, maintenance and the amount of manpower needed to support the program, the board has elected to go with another alternative for the 2011 season.

Since 2011, fully grown pheasant are purchased for the program. The
club will take delivery of the first order a week before opening day. Each
weekend during the season, a predetermined number of birds will be released at each leased property.

 

Also for 2016, hunters participating in the program are required to purchase a
hunters back tag ($65). The funds collected will be used to offset the
increased cost of the program and provide a gift of appreciation to the
landowners that lease the land to the club. The plastic back tag is
color coded and imprinted with a number assigned to the hunter.

THE BACK TAG MUST BE WORN ON THE HUNTERS BACK AT ALL TIMES
WHILE HUNTING ON ANY OF THE CLUBS LEASED PROPERTIES!
Failure to follow this rule could lead to revocation of hunting privileges.

Thank you and safe hunting!
