Grounds & Habitat
     Numerous projects are underway to  develop new trails and lanes, develop new rabbit habitat and establish food plots.  One of the big projects for 2018 and 2019 was the creation of rabbit food plots.  With these projects we established lanes of clover to feed the rabbits, better overhead wires in the training pens to keep out the birds of prey, and planted a variety of species; i.e., switchgrass and sorghum for more cover and food. 


    Again working with Kinsey's Outdoors we had a very successful Hunt and Banquet in February, 2019.  Many teams and interested supporters showed up at the Banquet.  Over fifty teams entered the full four rabbits and vied for the $5,000 in prizes.  Lots of raffles and drawings are associated with the Banquet.
    We are always looking for good prizes for this year's Banquet.  Call an officer if you wish to donate a prize and be recognized. 

    Our other major fundraising effort is the September "Daily Number" raffle.  If you might be interested in any of our raffles, be sure to contact a Club officer to be sure you get on the Club's mailing and email list.

Building & Structures

    The new dog kennel continues to impress everyone who sees it.  In addition, the older kennels have all been refurbished and we now have over 35-runs/boxes available for short and long-term use.

Rabbit Propagation

    The Club again had an extremely successful year raising rabbits.  Both training pens are well stocked, and Club grounds are now receiving rabbits. 

Membership & Committees

    We are always looking for new members.  Also, a "Friends" group has been initiated and has been very successful.

Field Trials

    The first AKC Field Trial, in over 30-years, was held on Club grounds in October, 2017.  Additional AKC "2-Couple Pack" field trials are now held in May and September each year.
