Serving the outdoors community for 27 years!
Welcome to the Fellowship of Christian Sportsmen website! Thanks for visiting!
FCS is a non-denominational, non-political, family friendly sportsmen’s organization, established in Austin, Texas in 1988. We remain based in the Austin area. We are also non-profit but we have not applied for tax-exempt status.
We minister to sportsmen by providing hunts, shoots, fishing trips, and similar activities across the state year round.
We make our best efforts, but be aware that we do not offer a guaranteed harvest for any of the hunts or fishing trips that we host.
FCS membership is not required in order to participate in our activities.
- A 24-hour Sporting Clays Shoot
- A Banquet
- A Ministry Event (Wild Game Dinner)
- A Shooting Range Shoot
- Deer Hunts (self-guided)

- Duck and Goose Hunts (inland and coastal; guided and self-guided)

We frequently add new events. Evening events last around 2 1/2 hours and hunting and fishing trips last from 1/2 to three days. We think that you’ll find that we’re what you’re hunting for! For more information see our “About Us” web page or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
