We will no longer be accepting new members until November.

We will begin membership renewals at the November meeting. It is a good idea to keep a record of the hours you work on the back of your membership card. You will then have a reference point for me at renewal time if there is any difference in my records and yours.

From the Trustees

Take note of the boundaries and dimensions on it. You must observe all hunting rules regarding safety zones. Be respectful of our neighbors, any posted properties and others’ tree stands.
