12/30/17 ‘Year End Finale’ NSCA Sporting Clays Tournament

FCS will participate in the next Capitol City Trap & Skeet Club (8707 Lindell Lane, 512-272-4707) sporting clays tournament on Saturday, 12/30/17. There is an on-line registration form (pre-registration is requested, not required). The main event (100 targets) price is $70. We can have groups of up to five but must have a group of at least three (not all have to be FCS members). We may have time to shoot a practice round of skeet. Note that if you are not a National Association (NSCA) member you will be shooting Hunter (or Shooter) Class, which means that you will not be eligible to win any prize money, nor will your score be posted on their website. Membership with the NSCA is $40 per year. There will also be a 50 Target 5-Stand Event, 50 Target Side Event, and Concurrent options. Please RSVP to Bruce Crockett at bmc55@att.net, 512-244-1555 (Home), or 512-970-7797 (Cell). You can also email or call him if you have any questions.

January (date TBD) Guided Goose Hunt (El Campo)

FCS will have a Guided Goose Hunt in January with Rayce Jenkins near El Campo. Rayce will let Ian Daniels know when the geese start to consistently come in, so it may be short notice. Three hunters killed 12 geese on the 12/3/16 hunt.

Cost and what to bring: The guide fee is $125/hunter, not counting tip. It is highly recommended that you stay in a motel in El Campo or Wharton the night before, as it’s a 140 mile drive from Austin. Two hunters per room with two queen or double beds is around $55/person. Randy Rowley recommends that you bring your license and stamps, gun, shells, headlamp or flashlight, camo hunting clothes (including a face mask or face paint – absolutely essential), snacks (optional), and drinks (optional). Randy recommends Winchester Xpert shells or equivalent in BBB shot, chambered for 3″ or 3 1/2″. Chest waders may not be necessary, but bring them just in case. Hunters will probably lie on the ground, so buckets/stools will not be necessary. More details to come.

RSVP and deposit required. RSVP to Ian at idaniels@austin.rr.com or 512-633-2221.

1/5/18 – 1/7/18 Coastal Blast and Cast (Duck Hunt and Bay Fishing Trip)

FCS will host a self-guided Coastal Blast and Cast (Duck Hunt and Bay Fishing Trip) on 1/5/18 – 1/7/18 at Port O’Connor We’ll use Wayne Weilnau’s and Daryl Shipper’s bay boats. We’ll stay at Wayne’s house in Port O’Connor. We’ll probably hunt on Friday afternoon, fish on Saturday morning, hunt on Saturday afternoon, and fish on Sunday morning. This trip is limited to eight people, counting Wayne and Daryl. We have three spots open.

Cost and what to bring: We’ll eat out and share the vehicle gas and boat gas. Everyone will buy his or her own bait, if we fish with bait. Randy Rowley recommends that you bring your license and stamps, gun, shells, headlamp or flashlight, bucket or stool, chest waders (breathable are recommended as you’ll get hot quick walking in and out), camo hunting clothes (including a face mask or face paint – absolutely essential), snacks (optional), and drinks (optional). He recommend Winchester Xpert shells or equivalent in 2 shot (the 1550 FPS variant), chambered for 3 inch (if your gun is also chambered for 3 inch). He does not recommend anything smaller than 4 shot. 10 gauges and 3 1/2 inch shells in 3 1/2 inch chambered 12 gauges are overkill for ducks, in his opinion. He usually starts out with an improved cylinder choke. If the ducks aren’t coming into the dekes (and his only shots as passing shots) he’ll switch to a modified. Steel shot (if of adequate size) will kill ducks. There is no need for Hevi-shot, Tungsten, Bismuth, etc. You’ll pay a lot more for those shells and they aren’t needed.

RSVP required to Randy. RSVP to randywrowley@gmail.com (his preference) or 512-922-2484. Also contact Randy if you have any questions.

1/6/18 Guided Inland Duck Hunt (location TBD)

FCS will have one more guided inland duck hunt on 1/6/18 with Ricky Eldridge.  Ricky’s family owns three miles of riverbank on the Navasota River, which enables them to set up blinds on his land. He also has access to ponds near Marquez, Cameron, Bastrop, and other locales.  For all four of our hunts with Ricky we have hunted ponds. They usually have good numbers of mallards and wood ducks, along with teal, gadwalls, redheads, GWT, shoveler (spoon bill), ringnecks, scaup, etc. Six of us killed 28 ducks on the 12/14/15 hunt, five of us killed 14 ducks on the 12/18/16 hunt, four of us killed 13 ducks on the 12/9/17 hunt, and four of us killed 24 ducks (limits) and one merganser on 12/16/17.  We will hunt a pond again on 1/6/18, so there is no need for waders.  Ricky will determine the location on the week of the hunt, depending on where the most birds are.

Cost and what to bring: The guide fee is $125/hunter, not counting tip. If we hunt near Marquez, consider spending the night in Franklin or Marquez the night before, as it is a 110 mile drive from Austin. Two hunters per room with two queen or double beds is around $50/person. Randy Rowley recommends that you bring your license and stamps, gun, shells, headlamp or flashlight, bucket or stool, camo hunting clothes (including a face mask or face paint – absolutely essential), snacks (optional), and drinks (optional). He recommend Winchester Xpert shells or equivalent in 2 shot (the 1550 FPS variant), chambered for 3 inch (if your gun is also chambered for 3 inch). He does not recommend anything smaller than 4 shot. 10 gauges and 3 1/2 inch shells in 3 1/2 inch chambered 12 gauges are overkill for ducks, in his opinion. He usually starts out with an improved cylinder choke. If the ducks aren’t coming into the dekes (and his only shots as passing shots) he’ll switch to a modified. Steel shot (if of adequate size) will kill ducks. There is no need for Hevi-shot, Tungsten, Bismuth, etc. You’ll pay a lot more for those shells and they aren’t needed.

The hunt is full. Contact Ian Daniels at idaniels@austin.rr.com or 512-633-2221 to be added to his will-call list in case someone drops out.

1/20/18 Sporting Clays Shoot

Our next monthly Sporting Clays Shoot will be on Saturday, 1/20/18, from 9:00 – 11:00 AM at the Capitol City Trap & Skeet Club.  The gates open at 9:00.  We will gather by the front door of their clubhouse at 9:05.

We will shoot their six station – 50 target Corporate/Hunter course, which is their easiest course (or a 12 station – 50 target Corporate course, if available).  You can shoot singles, report pairs or true pairs… or you can follow the menu at each station which is a mix of true pairs and report pairs.  We keep score just for fun and keep a history log on the web site so you can see how you have improved over time.  We will brag about our scores, and pass around the excuses and catch you up on our near term planned events.

RSVP to Bruce Crockett at bmc55@att.net or (512) 970-7797.  You can also email or call him if you have any questions.

Approximate schedule:
9:00 AM – Sporting clays
10:45 AM – Scores and announcements
11:00 AM – Depart (Or, stick around and shoot 5-stand, skeet or the main course.)

Who should come:  Members and guests, including ladies and youth, both new shooters and experienced.  We usually have from 10-20 participants, and we break up into groups of 4-5.  Note that the larger the group, the longer it will take to shoot.  We recommend all shooters be at least 10 years old.  For youths we suggest a 20 gauge that fits the child (if a youth shoots a .410 he or she will probably miss a lot and may get discouraged).  We often have new shooters and delight in teaching others what we have learned.

Cost and what to bring:  Each 50 round course is $21.65/person (includes tax).  If you don’t have a shotgun you can shoot with one of us and use ours (just let Randy know that you don’t have one).  Most of us shoot 12 gauge, but 20 gauge is good also.  Capitol City requires eye and ear protection (available free of charge at Capitol City).  They sell shotgun shells if you need them (but you can get them cheaper at Academy, Wal-Mart, etc.).  You’ll need to bring three boxes of shells if you plan to shoot both sporting clays and 5-stand/skeet.  Randy recommends Winchester Game Loads / Federal Game and Target Loads / Estate Dove Loads / Rio Game Loads / Remington Sure Shot Heavy Dove Loads / Winchester Heavy Dove Loads / Estate Dove and Target Loads. All of which are sometimes available at Academy.  1 oz or 1-1/8 oz loads and 1250-1300 FPS and 7-1/2 or 8 shot work well.  They all sell for $5.50-7.00 / box.  All six are great dove/quail loads in addition to being good clay target loads. If you’re a dove/quail hunter, Randy recommends that for you shoot sporting clays with the same load that you use to hunt dove/quail.  This enables you to develop consistent leads for similarly sized targets.  Most of the targets on their Corporate/Hunter course are designed for skeet chokes, but improved cylinder (IC) works just fine.

In the event of rain:  Light rain – we shoot.  Heavy rain – we stay home

 1/20/18 Guided Inland Duck Hunt (location TBD)

FCS will have a guided inland duck hunt on 1/20/18 (the date is tentative) with Rayce Jenkins near El Campo.  Two of us limited out on the 1/19/16 hunt, bagging green wings and blue wing teal and shovelers.  We also saw some pintails but they wouldn’t come within range.  We will hunt in pit blinds, so there is no need for waders.  There are benches in the blinds to sit on, so no buckets or stools are necessary.  He’ll drive us right up to the blinds so there will be minimal walking.

Cost and what to bring: The guide fee is $125/hunter, not counting tip. Consider spending the night in El Campo or Wharton the night before, as it is a 140 mile drive. Two hunters per room with two queen or double beds is around $55/person. Randy Rowley recommends that you bring your license and stamps, gun, shells, headlamp or flashlight, camo hunting clothes (including a face mask or face paint – absolutely essential), snacks (optional), and drinks (optional). He recommend Winchester Xpert shells or equivalent in 2 shot (the 1550 FPS variant), chambered for 3 inch (if your gun is also chambered for 3 inch). He does not recommend anything smaller than 4 shot. 10 gauges and 3 1/2 inch shells in 3 1/2 inch chambered 12 gauges are overkill for ducks, in his opinion. He usually starts out with an improved cylinder choke. If the ducks aren’t coming into the dekes (and his only shots as passing shots) he’ll switch to a modified. Steel shot (if of adequate size) will kill ducks. There is no need for Hevi-shot, Tungsten, Bismuth, etc. You’ll pay a lot more for those shells and they aren’t needed.

RSVP and deposit are required to Randy.  RSVP to randywrowley@gmail.com (his preference) or 512-922-2484.  Also contact Randy if you have any questions.  We can take a maximum of 12 hunters (six per blind).

2/5/18 FCS Meeting and Wild Game Dinner

Our next FCS Meeting (social activity) will be on Monday, 2/5/18, 7:00 – 9:30 PM at Ron Denison’s home (1009 Ambrose Cv., Pflugerville, 512-670-7717 – Home, 512-217-4677 – Cell).  The meeting will feature a wild game dinner. The cost will depend on how many people bring wild game but should be approximately $5/person. RSVP to Randy Rowley at randywrowley@gmail.com (his preference) or 512-922-2484. Let him know if you are going to bring wild game and what you will bring.  Also contact Randy if you have any questions.

Schedule:

7:00 PM – fellowship and eat dinner

8:00 PM – president’s report, upcoming events, and short devotional

8:30 PM – DVD

9:30 PM – depart

4/8/18 – 4/10/18 Semi-guided Hog Hunt

We have Sunday, 4/8/18 – Tuesday, 4/10/18 tentatively scheduled for another ministry group hog hunt at the Independence Ranch (formerly called the Wild Hog Hunting Ranch) near Gonzales.  Last year we killed 25 hogs, three years ago we killed 17 hogs, four years ago we killed 12 hogs, and five years ago we killed 9 hogs.

We have taken hogs by stalking during the day and from stands in the evening/at night.  The minimum caliber that they allow is .223 (with 60 grain hollow point bullets).  No buckshot is allowed.

Their Ranch Hand Hog Hunt Package continues to be a 3 day, 2 night wild hog hunt package (46 hours), and includes:

  • 1 Hog up to 299 lbs.+ unlimited piglets under 50 lbs.
  • Any 2 predators or varmints per day (bobcats, coyotes, fox, possums, armadillos, raccoons, rabbits, ringtail cats, or mountain lions – they want mountain lions shot on sight!).
  • Day and evening hunting sessions.
  • All meals and drinks.
  • Lodging.

The following continues to NOT be included:

  • Hog Cleaning:  Cost is $1.00 per lb., with a $50 minimum per hog.  So a 150 lb. hog would be $150, for example.  They do not let you clean your own hogs.  Hunters must pay for any hog cleaning fees in cash (only) at the ranch.  Any hog shot and not recovered will incur a $50 recovery/disposal fee, and will count against your harvest, or will be charged as an additional kill at an additional cost.

So you’re looking at $100 guide/staff fee, plus a $50 tip, plus a minimum of $50 if you shoot a hog, plus shared gas, plus fast food on the way there and the way home – around $230 total (plus $1/lb. if your hog is over 50 lbs.).

We must have 12 hunters in order to pull this hunt off.  The maximum that we can take is 16.

RSVP to Randy Rowley at randywrowley@gmail.com (his preference) or 512-922-2484 before 1/1/18.

If Randy does not have at least 12 hunters who have expressed interest by 1/1/18 he will cancel the hunt.  He cancelled two years ago, as we only had 11 commitments.

The guide fee and $50 tip ($150 total) will be required prior to the hunt.  The deposit due date is 2/5/18.  I will mail in our checks on 2/6/18.  They’ll arrive by 2/8/18 (two months before the hunt).  Please do not make the check out to Randy and do not send cash.  Randy will send a follow-up email that the hunt is a go.  If so, send your payments, made out to Independence Ranch, to:

Randy Rowley

11612 Birchbark Trail

Austin, TX 78750

Please let Randy know if you have any questions or see the ranch’s FAQ web page.

We will need an on-the-ground hunt leader for this hunt, as Randy’s spare pennies go to guided duck and quail hunts, so he will not be attending.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Event participants are expected to follow the FCS Rules of Conduct.

Event participants will be required to sign FCS liability waivers for events that involve risks if they have not already done so.

For directions to FCS events use this map.

FCS membership is not required in order to participate or attend FCS events; however, if you are interested here is how to join.

Members and guests, feel free to bring your spouse, child, and/or a friend (but RSVP for him, her, or them and pay in advance, if required).

People who are 18 years of age or older are considered to be adults for purposes of figuring out a person’s share of lodging, food, gas, etc.  For dividing up food costs, for example, minors may be treated as adults, depending on their size (e.g., a 14 year old boy who eats as much as a man will be charged as a man, and not as a child).

The event coordinators are told dozens of things each work day.  They also are told numerous things pertaining to FCS each week.  With the amount of information that they receive they will inevitably forget some of it.  Therefore, it is much better for you to RSVP via email than to call them.  (If you call them, please follow it up with an email.)  Some events have space limitations and the event coordinators have to ensure that we do not bring too many people.  Please help them to prevent overbooking by emailing your RSVP to them.  Also, if you text them be sure to let them know who you are.

Be aware that for events where we have a limit on the number of people that we can take that the hierarchy preference is as follows:

  1. Supporting members
  2. Spouses and minor children of supporting members
  3. Members who are not current in their dues
  4. Spouses and minor children of members who are not current in their dues
  5. Guests
  6. Spouses and minor children of guests

To quote the old American Express TV commercial “Membership has its privileges.”

Randy,

I enjoy the  club and all the great members.

Earl P.

————————————————————————————————————————————————-

FCS Webmaster:

Thanks for all your work in putting together FCS’s current, past & on-going clays score cards. Your spread sheet is easy to get around & 1st class as is the rest of our FCS website.

Thanks again,

Harold T.

————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Randy,

Really nice work on the FCS website page.

James W.

————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Randy,

Harrison and I went hunting yesterday am at friends place north of Walburg. Excellent morning and I limited and Harrison got 11 – our shooting much better and lots of dove until about 8:30. Great fun – I even hit 2 birds with one shot!

I got invitation to go back out in afternoon and seriously considered it – I already had the birds in the freezer. But then I thought about one of your talks about this very thing and what influence I might have on Harrison and compromise my values – so, I didn’t go.

Just wanted you to know we do hear some of what you say!

Flint D.

————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Randy,

You should take part in a contest for one of the best blogs on the web. I will recommend this site!

Ryan

————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Randy,

I was at GHBC for a Tres Dias meeting 2 or 3 years ago when I signed up on your email list. I have enjoyed following you guys and if I ever move to your area count me in. I live in Ft. Worth now. God bless your ministry!

Luke

————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Hi Randy,

Glad to know who did the cooking. Just want to say how much I enjoyed it. You guys did a great job. Glad to hear that you’ll be cooking next time, too.

Jo Ann O.

President’s note: this is in reference to the 3/31/11 Wild Game Dinner.

————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Hi Randy!

Thanks again for keeping me on the FCS email list. I really do enjoy it and appreciate your dedication and hard work.

Keep up the good work!

Rod W.

————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Thank you Randy for all your hard work with this ministry, FCS needs to have a booth at Global Impact Celebration next year.

Larry D.

————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Dear Randy,

You have no idea what the corn & meat & butter means to residents of St. George’s.  Recently the food bank has been cut out.  In the past once a month the Social Worker would go to the Food Pantry & bring food in.

Last month it was hot dogs & buns.

I have been bringing bread home from Mission Possible.

You have no idea of the excitement.  Two ladies regrouped the corn so all could receive.

Bless you!

Patsy M.

President’s note: we donated the left-overs from the 3/31/11 Wild Game Dinner to the residents of St. George’s Court, a low-income housing project for elderly and the handicapped.  One of the residents wrote the following note.

————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Sirs,

Becky and I had a great time shooting with you all!

Thank you, Randy for setting it up for us to participate in this event!

WHAT A DEAL – all the instruction and clays we could ask for!

The instructors were great. I heard basically the same advice form different instructors in sometimes different ways – which to us reinforced the instruction.

Becky and I got good results.

That was a great end to a near perfect day. Perfect as a close miss followed by breaking many more in a row!

That you all for including us in this event, being fellow sports people, trying to follow His trail.

Harold T.

————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Hey Randy,

I had a great time last night! What fun! What a great group of guys that showed up.. I think i may have made some new buddies.. I appreciate you running the club and leading from the front to see things happen and get done! Thank you for your dedication to the kingdom and have a great weekend!

Phil N.

————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Hey Randy,

I had a great time getting to know everyone that made it out to Cutchen’s place! I appreciate you helping me feel welcome with the group and look forward to the shooting range… Also thanks for the shot gun cleaning kit… Have a great week and look forward to being apart of the club more and we’ll see you sooner than later!

Phil N.

————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Had a great time last nite and some good eats. Appreciate the word given.

Mark M.

————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Randy,

Thanks for a wonderful and fun day. It was good to be out there and meet some of the members, not to mention great shooting among us. I can’t wait till the next round to do this again.

Robby W.

————————————————————————————————————————————————-

I had a good time visiting too!

Good Bible study, sent the link to some friends.

Thomas P.

————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Hi Randy – I have been meaning to send you a message since Thursday, and I suppose I forgot. I just wanted to say thank you for having me out, I really enjoyed the group. I look forward to getting to know you all better, and I am really looking forward to meeting up with you all at the shooting range as soon as possible. I know I will have a little bit of a struggle on some Saturdays getting someone to watch the kids, but it is definitely possible. At any rate, thanks again, and we will see you soon!

Paul I.

How to post in Facebook

Posted by: | Comments (0)

 

FCS has a group page on Facebook!  Anyone can view the page, like posts, and comment on posts.

The primary benefit of this page is we can engage in discussions much easier than we can on the website on a myriad of topics and it exposes the Club to anyone looking for a hunting, fishing, and clay target shooting club on Facebook.
