Hunting at Crooked Creek Conservation Club

​All ranges are CLOSED for the first two days of Deer Gun Season, November 29 & 30, 2021.
Here is a note from the club president about hunting on the club property:
Just a quick note to try to answer some questions about hunting on club land. The club currently owns approximately 413 acres. Members are permitted to hunt club property and are required to follow all state game laws, guidelines (including safety zones) and bag limits. At no time are nonmembers allowed to hunt on club property. Property lines are clearly marked and Ashtabula County GIS maps are available online. Portable tree stands are permitted as well as ground blinds. Stands and blinds left unattended must be tagged with the members name, address and membership number. Stands must be removed by April 1st or risk forfeiture. No nails or screws can be used in trees. Trimming of shooting lanes is permitted.
Hunting within the marked shooting preserve is permitted. Hen pheasants may not be harvested. Again, all state ​game ​regulations apply. Be a good neighbor and stay on club property. Don't hunt too close to our neighbors' dwellings. We are all stewards of the club. Be a good one and enjoy your experience.
