Hunting and Fishing Information

AVAILABLE TO SENIOR MEMBERS ONLYOnly senior members, their spouses, children and grandchildren 20 years old and younger may hunt. Spouses and children may hunt only when accompanied by the senior member. The only exception will be special events approved by the Board of Directors.


Before going into the field all hunters must first sign in at the Hunter's Shack. It is equally important that you also stop in the hunter's shack on your way out and sign out of the field before going home.
All hunters should be in an elevated stand except in special marked areas where ground blinds are allowed. All ground blinds must have a flag visible by air!
Make sure to mark your stand location in the hunter shack along with your name and phone number. Also make sure your stand in the field is marked with a tag containing your name and phone number.
