    Rifle deer hunt. We will be hunting my own property, so we are limited to how many hunters we can allow. We will meet Friday night to prepare for the hunt and then hunt Saturday and Sunday.  Meet at the new clubhouse (by my house) at 8:00 pm Friday night. Eat before you come. (Text 417-848-9622 for directions). Pick up same location Sunday at 7:00, but that could change depending on evening kills.

    We will be staying in a house, but you will still need sleeping bags (and cots if you have them). Bring camo and blaze ORANGE for the hunt, clothes to get dirty in, 2 towels, camp chair and toiletries (especially soap and toothbrush).

    Rifles will be provided; however, you may bring your own if you also bring ammo and a paper target with 3 shots placed on it from 50 yards (signed by an adult for verification).

    TRIP DETAILS: GREENHEAD LODGE in Peach Orchard, AR is blessing us with a waterfowl hunting weekend which would normally cost $800 per person. They have graciously donated the weekend for CTO Springfield Chapter, therefore the cost of this once in a lifetime trip is $100 per member and $150 per nonmember. 

    Meet at the Cooper House, Friday night January 18th. Please send money for dinner Friday night and Sunday afternoon as we will be stoping along the way to eat prior to our destination. We will return Sunday January 20th late afternoon (approx. 6:30pm).
