I'm trying to spin up my own gun dog group/club. Need 10 guys to cover costs of wingers, bird launchers, electronics, starter pistols etc. The equipment would be ours to do what we want and when we want .We would have access to private property. About 10 acres. Some open. Some with cover. Working on semi wild licence to set birds, but unsure if it will get approved. Looking for guys that are gun dog and hunting centric vs ONLY dog training. Perhaps use private property as well as meet up at WMAs. Private property would allow for access to lodge and storing equipment along with a gun range.
A 50 acre requirement is for the minimum acreage for a commercial preserve license. Other that a minimum of 1 bird per acre requirement for a semi wild preserve under 200 acres I do not believe there is a minimum acreage requirement for a semi-wild preserve. All applications must be accompanied by the required tax maps, lease agreement verification form (if property is leased) written evidence of birds purchased, and an application to import live game birds (if applicable).
