FCS

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

FCS is a 280+ member non-denominational, non-political, family friendly sportsmen’s organization, that was founded in Austin, Texas in 1988 (we have served the outdoors community for 29+ years). 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 quality and affordable hunts, shoots, fishing trips, 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 activities.

Our events include, but not limited to:

  • A 24-hour Sporting Clays Shoot
  • A Banquet
  • A Ministry Event (Wild Game Dinner)
  • A Upland Bird (chuckars, pheasants, 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.http://fcs-texas.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/021613_Upland-Bird-Hunt_Dimebox-300x200.jpg.pagespeed.ce.wBsTIBxTIV.jpg

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 get what you pay for) and in frustrated participants who will 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 camping, gas, bait, and food.  But 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.

Ask Randy

I just purchased some property in South Texas and have been setting up feeders.  I bought Moultrie and we have been having issues with them such as some get water in the units with causes the timers to  fry, spinner does not work well, etc.  Do you have a recommendation on brand to use or what do you use?  I’ve always used Moultrie.  I’ve had feeder mechanisms go out but I thought that went with the territory.  Here is an article on The 9 Best Deer Feeders.
