BCHC - We are full for 2008-09
****Update 7/28/08******We are now full for 2008-09
The club has decided to go to 13 members at $800 in order to get more folks in the woods. The club is located about 1 hour from Atlanta off of I-20 just inside the Alabama state line.
I can be reached at 770-277-8106 until 8PM for details.
Bennett Creek Hunt Club in Cleburne County Alabama is looking for additional members to hunt 1105 acres. The yearly club dues are $800 per member.The total membership for the club will be 13.
We are a Family Oriented Club and will keep it that way. We have no problem with drinking a few beers with Dinner but it just has to be controlled.The goal of the club is to hunt, be safe,respect each other,help each other out and have fun while doing it.
This was our 2nd year and so far we have taken 1 mature buck and 20+ Does from the property. There have been many younger bucks seen in the 80-110" range that we have let walk. A realistic approach to this property is that you will see many deer but as with most property the bigger bucks are few and far between which is why we have established the rules that are in place. There were several young borderline bucks that were "allowed" to walk and we have several "Shooters" on camera so we should have a good chance at a nice one this year. We are in this lease for the long term(3 year lease..self renewing for another 3 years) and want someone who can help develop the potential of the property. The property has several Hardwood Bottoms full of White Oaks, about 700 acres in thinned planted pines, 10 club food plots that were planted in Duranna and Patriot Clovers this past Fall and on site camping.
Turkey - By all accounts we are loaded with Turkey but not Turkey Hunters. The first year of the club 2 members took 3 Toms. Last season the property was only Turkey hunted 2 times and this Deer Season I saw and got got many many Turkey on video. I will update this post as we begin the 2008 Turkey Season as I expect it to produce several birds.
***Update*** - Rick took 3 Gobblers the last 2 weeks of the season!!! Pics attached.
