Why you joined

Knowing the history of Henderson Island and the trophy opportunities, joining was a no brainer. Also, being a landowner of other hunting properties and a member of numerous hunting clubs, I know how rare it is to find a group of like-minded individuals. The group involved with Henderson Island wants nothing more than to provide premier hunting opportunities for its members and family.

 
What do you like about Henderson Island?

For the last ten years I have hunted trophy whitetails in Pike County, Illinois. I enjoyed hunting there, but always dreaded the twelve-hour drive and ended up only utilizing the land for two to three weeks out of the year. Henderson Island allows me to hunt the same quality deer as in Illinois but much closer to home. Henderson Island is a property I can use year-round, fishing for various species of fish, dove hunting, turkey hunting, duck hunting, deer hunting, alligator hunting, bow fishing; the possibilities are endless.


What should new members know?

The value of a membership at Henderson Island in my opinion is priceless. Unlike other investments that may have volatility and ups and downs, coveted river front property is rare to find and will appreciate accordingly. I figure since I cant shoot or fish in the stock market, or shed hunt on commercial property, I would invest in something that me and my family can enjoy today and for many years and generations to come.

Henderson Island is the definition of "The Total Package." Henderson Island truly is a "year-round" piece of property that offers outdoorsmen to share the best of the best with their friends and family for years to come.

Hobbies

Hunting, fishing, horseback riding, golf, flying (airplane pilot), riding dirt bikes with my kids, boating, and water sports with kids in the summer

 
Why you joined

I joined first and foremost because I thought the group of guys that were involved with me was a great group of guys which were of like kind and mind. I am very excited about the group that put the deal together and all of the shareholders that have bought in so far. I look forward to years and years of great hunting, food, and fellowship with all of our members and developing new friendships with each and everyone of them and their families. 
 
I also joined because of the quality of the property known as Willow Point South. I have lived and hunted in the Mississippi Delta all of my life. I have always heard about the quality of hunting at Willow Point South being above and beyond any other tract of land in the Southeast. I am fortunate to have access to several good hunting properties already, but I did not want to miss out on being a part of this new venture on a wonderful property formerly known as "Willow Point."

 
What do you like about Henderson Island?

Not to repeat myself too much but I like Henderson Island for two reasons:  The people and the awesome hunting on this property pretty much sums it up. Henderson Island has great whitetail deer hunting, duck hunting, fishing, summertime boating and water sports on Lake Chotard, and just general fun in the good old outdoors. It is also a great family atmosphere.


What should new members know?

If you are a deer and/or duck hunter, fisherman, or just love to be in the outdoors, you can look all over the Southeast for a property that provides all of these needs and is above average on all of them and you want find anything any better than Henderson Island.

Hobbies

Bowhunting deer and hunitng ducks and turkeys is my passion; golf and fishing in the summertime are also favoraite pass times.


Why you joined

It's the only share club, that I know of, on the entire MS River dedicated to the bowhunter. Just knowing what the island grows annually in terms of wildlife is unbelievable! It's a truly unique piece of land in every way.  

                   
What do you like about Henderson Island?

That it grows some of the biggest whitetails the south and the shear number of record class deer is remarkable!  The timber duck hunting on Henderson has to be its most hidden jewel. Quick limits have become the norm on our many sloughs and breaks throughout the property, and fish filled coolers in the spring sets it apart from the rest. This island has it all and it's the top in its class!


What should new members know?

The wildlife vision and direction of the club along with a great family atmosphere is what makes it for me.

Why you joined

I've known about the Island for a long time. I was able to view the property with John Murry Greenlee, Jay Blackmon and Gilbert Rose, and after seeing the island first hand, it was a no-brainer.

 

What do you like about Henderson Island?

Looking forward to all of our families getting to know one another.


What should new members know?

I would tell new members that Henderson Island is going to be a special place for families and friends to get together and enjoy some of the finest hunting the south has to offer.
