Announcements

To all lease members, family and guest: BURN BANDS ON ALL PROPERTIES!

Fires of any type and in any location are prohibited during this excessively dry time.

Prolonged drought and low humidity have resulted in high fire danger conditions and recent implementation of burn bans throughout east Texas.  While weather changes, these conditions, make it difficult to contain wildfires throughout east Texas and on the our property at a time when Texas Forest Service fire crews will be tasked with controlling an escalating number of wildfires across the state.

As a result of these conditions, there is a no-open-flame policy and a no fireworks policy being enforced effective immediately on all properties until further notice.  The land owner is taking a  zero tolerance approach to enforcing these policies with anyone in violation that is on the property.  For those that don’t understand the risk we currently face, in 2011, under similar climatic conditions, a single spark from a faulty wheel bearing resulted in a wildfire that burned 20,000 acres of east Texas timberlands.

Please increase vigilance in our club regarding smoke signatures and patrol the property throughout the upcoming months to make sure there are no fireworks, cigarette butts, or fires on the property and rapidly identify and respond to any lightning caused fires as weather systems move through the area.  Report any violations, or concerns to Susan immediately at 817-805-2217, or Robert at 817-559-3015, and the land manager as well!

It is critical that we understand the seriousness of current fire conditions and our commitment to limiting any risk.

Thank you for your attention to this critical matter.

WORK DAYS FOR FALL, 2022

Work days are held twice a year on our different properties.   While it benefits both you and the Club to attend a work day (the Saturday of the work weekend) on your property, you do have the option to attend another property’s work day if it is more convenient for you.  Just sign in to receive credit.  (NOTE – signing in is mandatory and only way to receive credit!).  Be prepared to meet your member land manager, other fellow members, and to roll up your sleeves and contribute for the collective good!  Although it can vary depending on the needs, it can include working on the camp, mowing, putting up or mending gates, painting boundaries with purple paint, cutting paths (limbs and undergrowth – never trunks), road work, trash clean up, etc.    We always meet in camp at 9 am, sign in, obtain assignments and get to work.  After the work is done, feel free to go work in your own areas, as you wish.  If you cannot make it, you may OPT OUT for $100 on the website and receive credit that way.  Contributions are used for expenses, so either is helpful.  You must do one or the other to remain in good standing for the rest of the year.

Fall Dates:

556 – September 10, 2022 – Show up on the 556 at 9 am

428 – September 17, 2022 – Show up on the 428 at 9 am

2100 – September 24, 2022 – Show up on the 2100 at 9 am 

1815 – September 3, 2022 – Show up on the 1815 at 9 am

800 – September 17, 2022 – Show up on the 800 at 9 am

150 – Attend any of the property work days above.

Additionally, and to reiterate, to receive credit, you MUST sign in on the work day sheet.  Unfortunately, we cannot give credit for working on other days, as we cannot track, nor control that.   Also, please also bring any equipment and/or tools that you may think would be useful, such as (but not limited to) mowers, fence tools, purple spray paint, garbage bags, machetes, tractors if you wish, etc.  Anything to cut, fix, mow, repair or build with.  Feel free to coordinate it with your land manager.  After you are finished with the collective work for the club, feel free to work in your own areas if you want.  Thanks!

ALL MEMBERS MUST BE SET UP BY 9/15 – NO EXCEPTIONS!  

IF YOU HAVE MISSED THIS DEADLINE, YOU MAY HUNT BUT IT MUST BE PORTABLE. 

REMINDER TO OUR MEMBERS!

1.  BuckDaddys has a NO LOADED GUNS POLICY IN CAMP.  THAT MEANS, NO SHOOTING OF FIREARMS IN CAMP, OR NOT IN THE ACT OF HUNTING WHILE OUTSIDE OF CAMP.  VIOLATORS WILL BE INVESTIGATED AND IF DETERMINED VIOLATING THIS RULE, IMMEDIATELY TERMINATED. 2.  Always carry your membership cards. You might be asked to produce it. 3.  Sign in and out each time you enter and exit the property.  This is for everyone’s use – so we know who is out there with you! 4.  Please remember to be courteous to your fellow members and their hunting efforts.  Be courteous around camp and while on property.  Respect each other’s efforts, and belongings.  Do not disrupt a person’s hunt.  Also, never take anything, in camp or anywhere on club-property that is not yours.  Violations are considered serious infractions and will not be tolerated.  While we don’t normally have issues with this, we wanted to reiterate this policy. 5. Please keep non-hunting pets inside your campers or at home.  Pets tend, by nature, to mark and protect their territories and may appear aggressive towards non-family members even when they are just acting typically.  But we are a family-friendly environment and while we love our furry friends, we do not want our children, guests, or fellow BuckDaddys to be uncomfortable, annoyed by them, or scared of them.  If you are bringing any dog to camp, they must remain kenneled or caged while in camp or on property if not hunting.  Remember to call your land manager in advance of any hunting with dogs. 6.  Please remember to make sure any fires are completely out before you turn in for the night!  Be sure to check burn bans in your county as well to ensure they are legal. 7.  Always please drive slowly on club grounds. We have children, recreational vehicles, and people on foot that are on the same roads as you are, and we don’t want to see who wins.  Please exercise safety. 8.  Remember to wear your hunter orange while hunting, during deer season.  Its the law! 9.  Remember, no guests are allowed on property without BuckDaddys granting permission.  This protects our club and minimizes exposure and liability!  It also ensures that if they hunt, they agree in writing to our Bylaws.  Violations of this policy are taken very seriously. 10.  Make sure all camp fires are extinguished before retiring for the night. Have a great, safe and successful time!
