Well i'll start this off and say i'm looking for any info on clubs who are looking for members. I've been hunting public land latelty and i can really use to join a club. As for the clubs i were in, either they lost the land or it was just a miserable club and a bad experiance. Hell i just want to hunt and have a good time. i was in a club that had two chicks and both hated each other. what a mess that was. So if anyone knows of any just shoot me an email at [email protected].

thanks

Every club I've been in or hear about does nothing but fight! I used to like being around some of the guy's but seperate groups always form within the clubs and too much sneaky back stabbing crap goes on! I will try and find some quality guy's to hunt with without joining a club. The best club I belonged to was the Chester game club but I've heard from some of the members I'm still friends with that it is going down hill fast!

The clubs I was in that were ran by others are sucked, lots of inner fighting, the clubs that I had all ran smoothly, but we lost our last lease in Sparta, so since then my freinds and I started hunting public land and to be honest we love it.

Public Land Rocks!

Growing up as a kid... there always seemed to be a stigma associated with hunting on public land.

I guess it all depends on where you go.

I am like the rest of you guys... I have zero money to buy/own land.

i belong to barbertown sportsmans club in hunterdon county.. i love it there, sure there are the few members that cant do without arguing about spots, but whatever, thats life. i take life as it is, i wanna hunt, i gotta put up with the crap. its not all that bad. start to grow on you and becomes part of your weekly life. ill never leave the club...even if i owned my own property. hunting alone aint like hunting with your best pals.

I've hunted both public and private and you can take all the private land and do what you'd like. I'll hunt private land 100 %. If you didn't work and had all the time in the world you'd never cover it all. Myself and a few other OWAA members are starting our business based on public land in the northeast. I can hunt some awesome land for next to nothing. The best grounds, managed for game, go access,etc. I will never get ripped off again by those trophy buck outfitters. I'm in a group that goes to AK self guided. All get game(moose,caribou,bear, and the fishing) For about $2500. for 10 days. Look that one up in cabelas or the guide books. It would cost around $8000. Start your own group not a club. Plan trips, see what gear you need and then see what your group has got. Everybody buys a set amount of gear. It;s fair and fun. Leave your ego in a box. Don't try to buy everything on the market. Have fun and hunt public, you own it.

Since we lost our lease, and hunt public land, we hunt it the same way we did when we had the club. Other hunters either see alot of cars parked in one area, or if they do come around our area while we are hunting, they end up seeing to many hunters, and they move on, and we really never had a problem.

I always proof read my material for writing assignments. I forgot to proofread my post. I meant public land 100%.

Till our trails cross,

i was once in the old barn club. way to many members. Al will take anyone who will pay the money. there is no limit on members. when i was a member the only property was in long valley. i did get some nice deer over there, but to many hunters.

I agree i was a member at olde barn for a few years they shoot everything that moves and during gun season they are at the long valley property every weekend driving.
There are way too many people in that club Peterson takes any bit of cash he can get his hands on while he hunts a private peace of land where only himself and a few regular members can hunt on which is paid for by everyone.
I would look in another direction for a club i am now hunting state land again.
Good luck

I was going to suggest that... I used to belong, but...

That's what I noticed too. If you're hard pressed for a club though and don't want to hunt public land, it's a decent club to belong to. Any club will be what you make out of it. If you want to stay away from the infighting and backstabbing (which most clubs have), just mind your own business and do your own thing.

you are all correct about old barn. I'm caretaker at long valley & i'll only bird hunt week days.& have not done that in 2 yrs since my brittany died.
There is no deer drives. & the club does suffer because a few members but they stop coming fast. It's really a pay to hunt club. For example I would say we are post on Sat. & NOT ONE hunter would show up. Clubs fault? Or lazy members?

Bob you said there are no deer drives you must of made a mistake while you were typeing.
They drive that long valley piece into the ground from six day shotgun till feburay i was a member there for 4 years then it got too crazy for me i can name you all the guys that still do it anything with 4 legs and brown doesnt have a chance.
I am not telling anybody what to do but after seeing what goes on there i would look else where.
Just my 2cents

I belong to a club that me and a few friends started in 1971. We bought property in NY state, but do all of our bow hunting in NJ.The secret to a successful club is to keepit small. We have started with only 10 members and now have 20 because of our kids joining.
