FCS

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

Serving the outdoors community for 30+ years!

FCS is a 295+ member non-denominational, non-political, family-friendly sportsmen’s organization that was founded in Austin, Texas in 1988. We are also non-profit but we have not applied for tax-exempt status. We remain based in the Austin area.

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 is not required in order to participate in our events.  Of course, we appreciate it when people join as that helps us with our expenses (our main expenses are our $1,000,000 liability insurance policy and our website).

Our events include, but not limited to:

  • A 24-hour Sporting Clays Shoot
  • A Banquet
  • A Ministry Event (Wild Game Dinner)
  • An Upland Bird (chuckar, pheasant, and quail) Hunt (guided)
  • Dove Hunts (semi-guided and self-guided on day or 1/2 day leases)
  • Fishing Trips (inland and bay; chartered and self-chartered)
  • Hog Hunts (semi-guided and self-guided)
  • 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 land owner/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 and will be happy to add you to our distribution list.  There is no charge for this service and you can unsubscribe at any time.  Contact Randy Rowley at randywrowley@gmail.com to be added to the list.

For more information see our “About Us” web page or contact Randy.

We think that you’ll find that we’re what you’re hunting for!
