Thanks Dragthor for the comment. It is a steal for what is there. We are not trying to break people's bank just trying to pay our taxes!!!!!

Ray, How much land do you guy's have? You said there are 23 members is that how many you have now or how many you want after adding some new members? What else needs to be done for the club during the year? Work details, posting, ect. ect.. $275 sounds like a steal! [up]

Woodrow, you don't mention if your club hunts private or public pineland property. If private were and how many acres? I could be wrong, but from what I hear most club's down in that are is just public land.

El Jefe,
The club is only on 5 acres owned free and clear with over 800 acres of public land across the street (Howardsville Road area) and behind the club (Old Halfway Road) so you are correct in your assumption.
Why do you think members are only paying $275.00 for the year compared to the $800.00 to $1,500.00 dollars other clubs charge?

The $275.00 per member covers the taxes! I don't know about you but I am a poor family man supporting 6 and so are some others that hunt.

This is an opportunity to belong to a great club without taking out a loan to belong to it or hurting financially in the wallet and it is opened year round for club members to use in different capacities. It also has an outdoor shooting range for the membership to use along with other perks of membership.

Some like to hunt with a club and hang out with the guys afterwards while others like to be of the loner type. Different strokes for different folks.

bowhuntercop,
The club is used for more than hunting year round by the membership and we actually have a club house of which many clubs do not.

If you or anybody else wish to hunt the public land across the street and behind the club, go for it. Good luck this year and I will see you in the woods!

Officer, do me a favor though? If you don't have anything positive to say don't say anything.

Especially since you know nothing about the club, the guys that belong to it, or anything else about us.

Thank you.

Woodrow I hope you din'd misunderstand me, but why should I pay that kind of money if I can hunt the same land for free. I can see your point of camaradarie, that in itself is very noble.

OUCH!! I don't think you express yourself very professionally there RAY WOODROW 3RD. Do the rest of the members in your club have the same attitude? This is a family forum, were we are all free to express our thoughs and feelings in a decent and cordial way. We are all sportsmans, and we all try not to go way out of line with the language and attitudes. I personally went to the club website and saw what a fine organization you guys have put together in the last 56 years. But my feelings and the feelings of other members here is simply, WHY PAY FOR SOMETHING YOU CAN GET FOR FREE. I hope that you, your family and your club members have a good and save hunting season. God Bless And Protect Our Troops. Tony

To the members and lurkers of this board;

First off, I am truly sorry if I offended anyone but the term I used is actually a reference to a donkey. If that ruffled anyone's feathers accept my humble apology. I am just a man and I make my fair share of mistakes...and no the rest of the members in my club do not have the same attitude and neither do I but on a very rare occasion. What is that saying?
"Let him without sin cast the first stone."

The arrogant attitude expressed by someone on this board towards the club I belong to (it was not you El Jefe) was not necessary. The way gunning clubs and hunting in this state seem to be disappearing, we should all be rowing the boat in the same direction and not picking a fight with one another. All is water under the bridge as far as I am concerned.

El Jefe,
Paying that kind of money? If $275.00 is too expensive for you then I do not know what to tell you. Ever take the family out to dinner? How much did that rock you for ONE night? Ever take them to Six Flags for the DAY? How much did that rock you? Belong to a shooting range? How much does that rock you? Can you now see my point on the cost value of membership for a full calandar year?

Hunting as a group has its good points as does hunting alone. You all ask why would anyone pay to hunt free public land? You are not paying for that my friend. You are paying to use the club as a base of operations for the whole year to scout and hunt the area, to use the club range to teach your kids how to shoot in a stress free environment, and to sight in your guns and bows. Also to have a place to relax and hang your hat and boots while staying the night after hunting all day instead of driving all the way home only to drive back the next day to do it all over again, and most importantly to have the camaraderie with fellow members after a great day in the woods. I was raised to believe that camaraderie is just as much about hunting as anything else since the tender age of 11years old.

As stated before, the club is open all year round and can be used by the membership in many ways. How many other gunning clubs do the same? Few and far in between I am told. They usually shut down after hunting season. We have one of the best hunting lodges around with access to two hunting zones walking out the front door (zone 21 & 24).

Dragthor,
Members can and do shoot rifles, pistols, and shotguns on the range but the hunting season is first above everything else.

Unless you guys see what is offered to you with membership you cannot understand how good of a deal this is and if we did not need a few more members to cover the taxes, I would not be posting any info about the club. The way the members get along with one another is just that good. We do not want any spoilers or negative attitudes.

Anyone interested please contact me at: [email protected]

Thank you all for your time.

RW3
