Fur and Fowl
The Fur & Fowl Barn, L.L.C. facility is located at 170 Pine Drive, McVeytown, PA 17051 and is associated with the Christian mission outreach non-profit organization, which is the McVeytown Community Local Mission Service Foundation, ( website is mcveytownfoundation.com.) Fur & Fowl Barn’s primary goal is to provide quality deer hunts free of cost to both disabled veterans and others who are handicapped or terminally ill. (We directly support such veteran organizations as the PA Wounded Warriors and the Western PA Wounded Warriors. In order to learn more about these organizations and how you too can support their causes, please visit their websites by clicking on their respective logos below.) In order to offset the expense of these donated charity hunts, Fur & Fowl Barn offers a reduced cost for paid hunts to all other hunters who wish to use our facility and support or charity goals.
Fur & Fowl Barn, L.L.C. will periodically donate a two day hunt and overstay in the lodge located on site, as well as one Whitetail deer of the hunter’s choice. (Two such hunts are already being scheduled for this season with Pennsylvania based disabled veterans associations.) Any additional animals taken or use of the lodge beyond that donated, will be per standard costs. The hunter can bring up to two guests free of charge for use of the lodge, however all meals for guests which are provided by Fur & Fowl Barn will be at cost. Additional guests will be charged $150/day which includes use of the lodge, and overnight stay, as well as the opportunity to hunt. Any meals provided by Fur & Fowl will be at cost and any animals taken by guests will be invoiced at the standard rates. Limited alcohol use is permitted in the lodge area as long as all State and Federal laws governing the consumption and purchase of the same are complied with. Under no circumstances are any hunters or guests permitted to hunt or accompany hunters afield if they do not fully comply with State D.U.I. blood/alcohol limitations. Guests that wish to hunt will be charged at standard rates. Rates for antlered deer are based on scoring from a certified Boone & Crockett scorer at the highest unofficial Boone and Crockett gross green score measured via typical or non-typical Whitetail deer (with no deductions); rates are at $12 per unofficial B. & C. point up to 200 total gross points, $13 per unofficial B. & C. point for all bucks greater than 200 total gross points, all does are a flat rate fee of $150/doe. For hunters that book a two or more day hunt, they are each credited one doe/hunter free of cost.
The area for the hunt is ~ 170 acres double fenced perimeter and has some difficult terrain with gentle easily accessible terrain as well. There are 5 standing corn fields intermixed with alfalfa/clover field food plots, an oak wooded wetland and stream area, all flat terrain and more easy access. However, there is a substantial portion of the property which is steep rock slope with two benches, all heavily wooded with mixed hardwood, saplings and brush. There are some access roads and trails but this area is difficult access. We have a lodge area that is handicap accessible for both bathroom use and sleeping The lodge has two bedrooms and sleeps 3 on lower bunks (comfortable) sleeps 3 on upper bunks (a bit tighter fit since it is close to the ceiling.) There is a kitchen dining area and living room area with fireplace and T.V. and the front glass door overlooks our deer breeding pens. There is cell phone reception in the area. This is not a “canned” hunt, the deer act wild and have a lot of area to traverse with readily available escape cover. This is largely due to the fact that our breeding pen operations have emphasized no handling of fawns for the last two years and limited interaction with all animals throughout the year, as well as using large breeding pen areas which have various cover and trees inside the pens.
Please be advised, there is absolutely no guarantee that the hunter will be successful at taking an animal during the hunt and only archery and muzzleloader hunting is permitted (cross bow and inline muzzleloaders are acceptable). The hunter must be accompanied by one of our guides (a friend or family member is also permitted). . A waiver for release of liability and indemnity must be signed by all participants. The hunter can take whatever animal he chooses. Any animal killed must be tagged appropriately by Fur & Fowl Barn, and if applicable, the brain stem may need to be removed to ensure full compliance to PA Dept. of Agriculture regulations disease monitoring/testing. Fur & Fowl Staff will be responsible for field dressing the animal and transporting it to the lodge facility for final tagging and loading. All successful hunters will be required to remove the entire animal from the Fur & Fowl facility upon completion of the hunt, any further processing of the carcass and/or mounting shall be the full responsibility of the hunter.
There is no hunting license required as this is a private hunting preserve. If you would like to schedule an individual or group paid hunt the above noted standard rates for hunters and guests will be applied. If you or a loved one is a Pennsylvania resident with either a terminal illness or are a disabled veteran, and would like to be considered for a charity hunt, please contact Bill Capouillez directly via e-mail at email@example.com via the mcveytownfoundation.com website or cell phone 717-250-1218
This Hunting Preserve directly supports charity hunts for our wounded military veterans.
Please do your part and help protect this area fence and all the animals within it. May God bless our veterans and their families as we remember their daily sacrifices for all of us and our country. Without them, your personal rights to hunt, own a gun, and enjoy all the great freedoms of being an American would cease to exist.
Thank you. Fur & Fowl Barn, L.L.C.
