President’s column:
Higher prices are everywhere. The grocery store, at the gas pumps, electricity, heating fuel. Not to mention new vehicle prices. It is extremely hard to pick out one single thing that doesn't cost more money nowadays. Well, there is one thing. Your Fish and Game membership. Renewing members still pay $50 for 2024. That is the definition of value.
With all the political unrest and division in this country, terrorist threats and wars abroad, it might be a good time to sharpen your marksmanship skills. There is no better or cheaper place to do this than the F&G. The Defiance Area Fish and Game Assoc. is definitely more bang for your buck!
In addition to your personal membership benefits, your membership dollars also help support many programs including, youth shooting sports, hunter education, women’s shooting sports, youth archery as well as may others.
