If you would like to have some fun, and at the same time help someone that needs an extra hand, come join me and other volunteers for the Physically Challenged Pheasant Hunt.
After a talk about gun safety, dog handlers will let their well-trained pointers, setters and retrievers out of their cages to find the pheasants.
When the dogs point the birds, volunteers from the Chowchilla High School football team push and pull the wheelchair bound hunters into position to get off a well aimed shot.
This is not an easy task as the shooters are limited in the way they can swing a shotgun, and the pushers and pullers are hampered by knee high alfalfa that is wet from dew.
You have to witness the smiles on the faces of the successful hunters to understand the thrill the physically challenged hunters get from this activity.
After the morning hunt, the Madera Lions Club provides lunch, consisting of hamburgers, hot dogs, chips and sodas,
Then, its time to go back out into the fields to finish bagging their limits.
At the end of the day, volunteers clean the birds and pack them in ice for the trip home.
If you need a smile on your face and a "feel -good" feeling, come join me and other volunteers to help some real sportsmen and women have a great day pheasant hunting. All you have to do is call Ben Lewis at the Dept. of Game & Fish at 240-0871. See you there. If you can't make that date, there will also be a Family Pheasant Hunt at Hensley Lake on December 14.
The December Member/Directors meeting will be held on December 19th and will feature a wonderful holiday dinner. After a brief meeting, we will have our traditional Holiday Gift Exchange Game. Anyone who would like to participate should bring a wrapped gift that would be suitable for male or female and not cost more than $10. If you have never enjoyed the club’s gift exchange game, you are in for a lot of fun. So, set aside the third Thursday of December and come join us at the club. Bring the entire family, and your friends are welcome too!
The work on our website continues to move forward. There are a lot of details to managing many hundreds of members online! Dues notices are going out to many members automatically by email and new members are able to sign up via the website. This is a huge improvement, as this was all done manually before. Hopefully, by early next year, we can enable the 'pay online' piece and really make it easy.
We can always use folks to write news about the Club and help with an online newsletter, so feel free to message me
with your ideas. Thanks! Ray
The Calendar is kept up to date, so that you can see whether there are any future functions going on when you visit.
If you haven't been to the Fresno Co. Sportsmen's Club lately, you will be in for a pleasant surprise. Things are changing down by the River!
Jerry Rogers Jr., owner of Goodall Trucking, is donating his heavy equipment and manpower to regrade the riverfront area and campsites. Jerry Rogers, Jr. and his dad, Jerry Rogers Sr. along with Chad Pricolo and Craig Warmouth have been operating the equipment which was used to renovate the camping areas along the west side of the pond. Also helping out was Mike Spencer and the Roosevelt High Bass Fishing Club with their sponsor Randy Smith. Of course, Pat and Mike Manzula were helping out, too.
Join us for our monthly dinner meeting, held on the third Thursday of every month at 7:00PM. Come by when the doors open at 6:00PM and meet our friendly members and staff, have dinner, perhaps a guest lecturer, and the monthly Director's Meeting.
Fresno County Sportsmen's Club members enjoy 13 acres of quiet riverfront on the San Joaquin River. It's a great place to enjoy a picnic under the many shade trees, play a game of baseball on our diamond, or put a canoe or kayak in the river and paddle for an afternoon. It's not uncommon for folks to come out to the Club just to take an afternoon stroll and watch the sunset. For the youngsters, there's a 2 acre fishing pond with plenty of fish for them to catch. There are also a few quiet campsites with fire rings for toasting marshmallows. Our log cabin clubhouse is the largest in California, big enough to host your wedding or company picnic.
Our members share a common interest in protecting our environment and natural resources while enjoying the great outdoors. We are indebted to our numerous members who volunteer their time and efforts every month to make these great facilities available for our membership. We also play host to numerous conservation groups:
If you share one or more of these interests, you may want to consider joining our group!
Our authentic log cabin clubhouse is in great demand as a wedding venue. Take a tour of the Clubhouse
