MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS

 * A variety of food plots were planted for the benefit of all our wildlife.

* The area of the Club towards Mark Lord’s place was declared a Safety Zone to protect our neighbors from stray gunfire. So far, it seems to be working well. Members are reminded that hunting is strictly prohibited in the areas posted as Safety Zones.

*Nassers property remains OFF LIMITS

*New kitchen and furnace installed this year.

DON’T CROSS FENCES ONTO UNLEASED PROPERTY

 I would like to thank all the other officers for the hours they put in. And all the members who stepped up to help with all the events this year. Thank you all for your hard work and dedication to Shaner Sportsmen’s Club. Hunting season is here once again. I would ask if you plan on hunting on our leased property to stop and introduce yourself to our land owners, out of respect. And leave their land the way you found it.

Thank You, From The Officers

P.S. Good luck on your hunting season!
