Dog Handlers 
Our crew of dog Handlers remain in place with Bob henry, Bill Anderson, Jeff Thomas, Brian Parsons, George Mock, Scott Hoover, Jeff Coppes, Greg Butler and others are anxious to get your groups in the hunting fields. They are working with some promising young dogs that are sure to add even more to your hunt.

The Cover and Changes
It has been a†hot dry summer here, but the cover is still good. We have converted some of the corn fields to sorghum fields and they look good!. The hunting fields have been holding pheasants all summer. Our great cover is sure to add much excitement to your hunting experience!.

Change for Clubhouse Reservations
All groups wishing to lodge in the clubhouse will need to meet the $450 minimum charge for your groupís stay. At $65 per person, i.e. 7 people for one night or 4 people for 2 nights.

Shot Size Regulations
In an effort to reduce cripples we will continue to require upland bird hunting to be done with shot size no smaller than #6 in all shotguns. For upland bird hunting we recommend 12 gauge guns with Hi Brass shells (Example: 3 3/4 grams, 1 1/4 oz., #5 shot).
