How To Join FCS

Welcome to The Fellowship of Christian Sportsmen (FCS)!  We’re what you’re hunting for!

We are a 320+ member non-denominational, non-political, family-friendly hunting, fishing, and sport shooting club established in the Austin, Texas area in 1988.  We have served the outdoors community for 32+ years!  We are also non-profit but are not tax-exempt.  We remain based in Austin.

We minister to sportsmen by offering quality and affordable hunting and fishing trips, shoots, and similar activities across the state (but primarily in Central Texas) year-round.  We love to fish, and 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 Rules of Conduct while on FCS events.  Of course, we appreciate it when people join FCS as that helps us with our expenses.  We also have an Event Hierarchy, so if a supporting member and a non-supporting member (for example) want the last spot for an event, the supporting member would get the spot.

Events

Our 2021 events include:

  • A Celebration Banquet
  • A Chartered Hybrid, Striped, and White Bass Fishing Trip
  • A Chartered Bay Fishing Trip
  • A Guided Upland Bird (chukar, pheasant, and quail) Hunt
  • A Ministry Event (Wild Game Dinner)
  • A Self-guided Hog Hunt
  • A Semi-guided Hog Hunt
  • An Officers Meeting
  • Blasts and Casts (Self-guided/chartered Duck Hunts and Bay Fishing Trips)
  • Club Meetings and Dinners
  • Guided Inland Waterfowl (duck, goose, sandhill crane, and teal) Hunts
  • Self-chartered Bay Fishing Trips
  • Self-chartered Freshwater Fishing Trips
  • Self-guided Duck and Teal Hunts
  • Semi-guided Dove Hunts
  • Sporting Clays Shoots
  • Sporting Clays Tournaments

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 that051216_FCS Guided Fishing_Group 1 inexpensive guided hunting and chartered fishing trips often result in poor harvests (as the saying goes, you get 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 know that not everyone can afford guided/chartered events; therefore, we offer self-guided/chartered events without guide and game cleaning fees and tips (see our Self-guided Hunting and Self-chartered Fishing Rotations for details).  At many events, we are also able to cut expenses by carpooling (and sharing gas) and sharing motel rooms.
