FCS is a growing, dynamic ministry.  For the last nine years (and 12 out of the last 15 years) we have had far more events than there are weeks in the year.  As we are limited by the hunting seasons for specific animals and birds we frequently have several events occurring simultaneously.  Details on events that will soon take place have dark blue hyperlinks.  We will not post details for events that are several months away as many details can change for such events.

How to post in Facebook

Posted by: | Comments (0)

FCS has a Facebook group page!  Anyone can view the page, like posts, and comment on posts.  Group members can add posts with the administrator’s (Randy Rowley) permission.  This prevents people from posting about wedding dresses, sports apparel, etc. (which has happened).

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.  Also, younger people communicate more frequently via Facebook than via website discussion forums.

To post your thoughts, pictures, and videos:

  • Go to the FCS Facebook page (you’ll need to log on to Facebook; if you don’t have a Facebook account you’ll need to create one).
  • Request to join/become a member.  Once approved by Randy, you can post.
  • At the middle top, it states “write something” – if all you want to do is write something like, “Does anyone know a good place to hunt for squirrels?” type your question or statement in there and click “Post.”
  • In the middle (to the right of “Write Post”) is “Upload Photo / Video”  If you want to upload a picture or video, click there.  Then click “Upload Photos/Video”.  If you’re using your computer you’ll be taken to your hard drive.  If you’re using your smartphone you’ll be taken to the App that houses your photos and videos.  Select the picture(s)/video(s) that you want to share.  You can also say something about the photo(s) or video(s) in the “Say something about your photo” section (above the thumbnail of the picture or video that you selected).  Click “Post.”

If you have any questions contact Randy at randywrowley@gmail.com (his preference) or 512-922-2484.

Scorecard

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Welcome to the FCS Clay Target Scorecard page!  This page contains a spreadsheet that has most Sporting Clays (mainly), Skeet, and 5-Stand scores and 1st place, 2nd place, and 3rd place finishes from 1993 to the present.  Unfortunately, scorecards were not always turned in after every shoot or sometimes for our early shoots they were turned in but we only recorded the scores on those who placed (the first place or top three finishers).  However, all but two of the shoots since 6/20/98 show every competitor.

The averages are figured on a round of 50 sporting clays or 5-stand targets basis.  Consequently, skeet shoots are not included in each shooters sporting clays/5-stand average as only 25 targets were shot and skeet averages cannot be included with sporting clays averages as skeet’s an easier game.

Capitol City Clays (where the vast majority of our shoots have been held) added a hunters course in 2005.  This course is easier than their previous masters course, consequently the averages for shooters who just shot the masters course or a combination of the two courses will be lower than shooters who have just shot the hunters course.

The scores can be viewed as follows:

Annual Tab – lists monthly scores, annual scores, and 1st-3rd places of each individual by year.

FCS Summary Tab – summarizes annual scores and 1st-3rd places for each year, and cumulative scores and 1st-3rd places for all years.

Top Shooters Tab – lists top scoring shooters from 1993 to the present.

Click on the link below to view scores of the FCS Clay Target Shoots – wait patiently for a few seconds while it downloads. To exit, hit left arrow instead of hitting “x” (If the Windows Security window pops up, you can hit “X” to view the score sheet).

Feedback and Testimonials

Posted by: | Comments (0)
Steven and Randy,
Wanted to thank both of you for putting on the Upland bird hunt this past weekend.  We had a blast, no pun intended.  Steven did a great job and the gentleman and his two sons who did the hunt were great.  They could not have been more welcoming and fun.  Everyone followed the instructions like we are supposed to and everyone got to shoot and hit a bird or two or more.  When the birds were released the guns were blazing.  Can’t thank you two enough.  It was a lot of fun and hope the next hunt is just as good.
Frank H.

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!

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!

Keep up the good work!

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 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!

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.

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.

On the Wednesday afternoon before Thanksgiving I put my safety harness, a light jacket, and my backpack on and walked towards the west side ladder stand on a small property near Round Rock.  As I neared the creek a doe ran out, followed shortly by a decent sized eight point buck.

He was in range but I had three problems.  For starters my binoculars were in my backpack.  I couldn’t tell if he was a legal deer for the county that I was hunting (Williamson), which requires a minimum 13” inside spread.  Secondly my shotgun was unloaded.  Thirdly, he was outside of shotgun range.  I walked slowly up to a big tree that was 10 yards away and tried to use it to hide my movements.  As the buck watched me, I slowly leaned my shotgun against the tree and started to slowly take my backpack off of my back.

Bible verse of the day

But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.
