Rotations (Hunting and Fishing)

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

Serving the outdoors community for 32+ 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 offering quality and affordable hunts, fishing trips, shoots, and similar activities across the state (but primarily in central Texas) 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 FCS as that helps with our expenses.

Our 2021 events include:

  • A Banquet
  • A Bass Fishing Trip (hybrid, striped, and white; chartered)
  • A Bay Fishing Trip (self-chartered)
  • A Dove Hunt (self-guided on a day or 1/2 day lease)
  • A Ministry Event (Wild Game Dinner)
  • An Upland Bird Hunt (chukar, pheasant, and quail; guided)
  • Clay Target Shoots (5-stand, skeet, and sporting clays (primarily))
  • Freshwater Fishing Trips (primarily bass but also crappie; self-chartered)
  • Hog Hunts (self-guided hunts and a semi-guided hunt)
  • Meetings (club and officer)
  • Sporting Clays Tournaments
  • Waterfowl Hunts (crane, duck, goose, and teal; 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 our hunts or fishing trips.

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 guided hunting and chartered 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, boat launch or state or county park 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 (and sharing gas) and sharing motel rooms.

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.
