2021 Calendar (includes links for upcoming events)

By

FCS is a growing, dynamic sportsmen’s organization.  For the last ten years (and 13 out of the previous 16 years), we have had far more events than there are weeks in the year.  As the hunting seasons for specific animals and birds limit event planning, we frequently have several events coinciding.  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 things can change for such events.
