Richmond hunting club is the only one I know of... But I've only played paintball there so far...
He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.”

Haven't hunted there for a long time. From what I remember, if you don't have a good bird dog, it's tough getting birds up.

I was skeet shooting with some ducks hunters who hunt on public land in fox lake or near by. They stated that it was super crowded. I guess it's all about what you want to hunt.

I have been hunting at Chain o' Lakes park on and off for the last 35 years or so. Please see this link for more info:

I many fond memories from there. It has been run by a private/public enterprise the past few years and it seems that the release of pheasants is more consistent. It is a nice place to hunt, it does get busy sometimes but they do a good job of keeping everyone spread out. A lot of the ground is very wet/marsh/slough conditions. I recommend wearing hip boots if you want to stay dry! A good dog will be a great help, a mediocre dog will be better than being on your own if you have one. A lot of the cover is thick and it can be tough getting the birds up without a dog.
It is also a good spot for local archery hunting, and the cleanup pheasant hunt at the end of the season is also fun!
