The McLeansville Wildlife Club Story

The McLeansville Wildlife Club began at McLeansville Barbershop in 1975, owned and operated by Don W. Michael. Since that time, the club has received several Governors' Awards, the National Wildlife Federation's President Award, and the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Award. The legislation requiring hunters to wear "Hunter Orange" was originally drafted by the Club in 1977.


The Club's objectives are:

  • To promote a mutual understanding relationship between sportsmen and the community. 
  • To work for the wise use and management of our Wildlife and Natural Resources.
  • To abide by the laws and regulations prescribed for the purpose of taking Fish and Game.
  • Sponsoring community activities related to outreach and conservation.
