I belong to a small deer club. We lease about 1800 acres. We have 12 members. Three member could not join this year because of the economy. They just could not afford it. We have about 6 members that have hunted together for 25 years and others that have been there almost that long. We have an old share croppers shack that we made into a camp house and we all share food and cook meals watch tv like a family. Its scary to have to bring in new members. You don't know how they will fit in. The wrong type person can make it bad for everybody. Its kind of like talking to a person on the phone and then letting him move into your house. I know good people that I really like but I will not hunt with them. Deer hunting brings out the best in some people and the worst in others. But what can you do? If we go up on dues no one can afford that.
