Hunting and Fishing Rotations

Welcome to the Fellowship of Christian Sportsmen (FCS) website! Thank you for visiting!

Serving the outdoors community for 31+ years!

FCS is a 300+ member non-denominational, non-political, family-friendly sportsmen’s organization established in Austin, Texas, in 1988.  We are also non-profit but are not tax-exempt.  We remain based in the Austin area.  We think that you’ll find that we’re what you’re hunting for!

We minister to sportsmen by providing quality and affordable hunts, fishing trips, shoots, and similar activities across the state year-round.  We love to fish, but we strive to be fishers of men.

FCS membership, church membership, and being a Christian are not required in order to participate in FCS events or join FCS.  However, FCS members and guests are required to uphold the FCS Camping, Fishing, Hunting, Safety, and Shooting Rules (located in the Bylaws) while on FCS events.  Of course, we appreciate it when people join the Club as that helps us with our expenses.

Our events include, but not limited to:

  • A Banquet
  • A Dove Hunt (self-guided on a day or 1/2 day lease)
  • A Hog Hunt (semi-guided)
  • A Ministry Event (Wild Game Dinner)
  • An Upland Bird (chukar, pheasant, and quail) Hunt (guided)
  • Bay Fishing Trips (self-chartered)
  • Bass Fishing Trips (chartered and self-chartered)
  • Meetings
  • Sporting Clays, Skeet, and 5-stand Shoots
  • Sporting Clays Tournaments
  • Waterfowl (duck, goose, and teal) Hunts (inland and coastal; guided (all) and self-guided (duck))

We frequently add new events.

We make our best efforts, but we do not offer a guaranteed harvest for any of the hunts or fishing trips that we host.

Evening events last around 2 1/2 hours and hunting and fishing trips last from a half-day to three days.

We try to balance expensive and inexpensive events.  Through many years of experience, we have found that inexpensive hunting and fishing trips often result in poor harvests (as the saying goes, you 051216_FCS Guided Fishing_Group 1get what you pay for) and in frustrated participants who do not return.  We prefer to pay a standard landowner/outfitter/guide rate to have a better chance of success.

Additional expenses often include tips, game cleaning fees (for those who wish to have their game cleaned), motel rooms or campsite fees, boat launch fees, gas, bait, and food.  We also understand that not everyone can afford expensive events; therefore, we offer events with minimal costs.  At many events, we are able to cut expenses by carpooling, sharing motel rooms and campsites, and cooking.

We send out regular emails on FCS news and sportsmen’s topics.  Contact Randy Rowley at randywrowley@gmail.com to be added to our ‘Future Members’ Google Group (distribution list).  There is no charge for this service.  You can unsubscribe at any time.

Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
