trapping for Coyotes and foxes, but no waterfowl. there is a cull for Canada geese on one of our farms that may be necessary.

out of the 800 acres, how much of it as actually "hunt-able" ? 25 guys on 800 acres doesn't sound "too bad" that's a little more than 30 acres per man, but if half of that are open agriculture, the available stand locations can get scarce pretty quick.

 

How does deer stand selection even work with that many members? This is very close to my current z2 and z5 hunting areas I am sure, so I would be interested but I also grew up in a large club and fully understand human nature and can see problems before they happen.

 

One final question - and this would rule me out. Does this club run "deer drives" during ANY of the deer seasons? I am only interested in an opportunity at mature bucks and occasional doe if the numbers are there, which in my experience - zone 5 in particular is very beaten down on the doe herd.

 

Not trying to be difficult - actually sounds like a great opportunity if it's a group of like-minded individuals that all get along. Again in my experience growing up with a 25 member club on 1,500 acres that ran deer drives ad-nauseum, I would not wish to participate in that all over again.

 

thanks,

JH

I'm going to move this into the Hunting Clubs forum so the guys looking for clubs can see it.
