Welcome to Mazonia Hunt Club!
Duck and Goose Hunting Capital of Illinois
Important Update For All Hunters!
December 29th, 2013
Welcome to Mazonia Hunt Club (423 West Main Street - Gardner, IL 60424 --Exit 227 on I-55), the oldest and most respected waterfowl hunting club located adjacent to Braidwood Lakes and the Mazonia State Wildlife Refuge! Come see why we are rated number one by our customers and enjoy spectacular waterfowl hunting!
I have been fortunate to have great fields and have several openings left for the season on weekends as well as weekdays. Some days are near capacity so call or email and we will do our best to put you on birds.
Again, I was able to negotiate a special room rate with Super 8 Hotels in Dwight IL for any Mazonia Hunt Club hunter. A King room will cost $55 per night and a Double Queen room is $60 per night (taxes not included). When booking let them know you are hunting with Mazonia Hunt Club to get the discount. They are "pet friendly" as well for those that will have their canine companion along for the hunt. Click Here To Make a Reservation at Super 8
I urge you not to wait until the last minute to book your hunts as the season progresses the prime dates book up quickly. We emphasize introducing youths to the sport and I know a lot of you may only have one or two opportunities to join us. Click Here To Book Your Hunt Now I would suggest if you have some tentative dates that you call or email (best) me and give me the dates. I am blessed to have fields that are close to the lake where the birds are and my goal is to make it enjoyable for you and to introduce the sport to new hunters.
Having said that I want everyone out there to do their level best to introduce someone to the sport. Perhaps someone that hunted years ago and just lost interest or a place to hunt. You all know I encourage youth hunting for a number of reasons, but none more important than a great life lesson in responsibility and respect. In that vain since I went in business I have always offered to give any youth hunter under age 16 a FREE HUNT on his or her first visit. The only two things I require is the guide fee be paid and they are accompanied by a parent or guardian that will be positive and encouraging.
We, truly honor and respect all of our first responders and military personell and as such extend our heartfelt gratitude by offering discounts and special considerations. Any firefighter, police officer or active military member receives a 20% discount. Another thing I offer and feel strongly about is this; if you know of a fellow hunter that has fallen on hard times and simply is not participating due to the cost of a hunt, call me. I will never deny anyone the privilege of hunting due to cost. I will gift a free hunt to a paying hunter and they can extend the free gift to their friend. Take advantage of the opportunity but PLEASE do not take advantage of me. I want this to be in those cases where there is a need and yet do not want to forget that everyone has their own pride. That is why the "free hunt" goes to you and you are the "winner" that can be the hero in the eyes of someone that may need uplifting.
The best to all.......................
