Most of the lease land gates will be accessible beginning May 9 2020. We are asking members to hold off on using the South gate to allow more time for the road to dry off. Remember to Tread lightly and be Safe!

4/14/2020 – Online Hunter Safety Course
NOTICE I received this from Kelly Stang Hunter Education Program Administrator NYS Hunter Education Courses;
Please post on Facebook and the website,
New York is now going to offer a fully online hunter education course so that students can get certified during this time when we cannot offer in- person courses. The online course is going to be offered through Kalkomey, the company that we use for Event Manager and the online homework.
The course will cost $19.95 per person. Right now, the course will be available for a limited time, from April 15 through June 30, 2020. By late June, we will make a decision on whether to keep the course open for a longer period of time. Anyone age 11 or older can take the online course and you must be a resident of New York State. Students who successfully complete the course, and pass the final exam, will get a hunter education certificate. Starting Wednesday, April 15th the course can be found at https://www.hunter-ed.com/newyork/
Kalkomey is charging a fee for students to take this online course. That money stays with Kalkomey and helps pay for the customer support they provide for the online course. Providing this fee-based online course is an action that had to be taken at this time in order to continue offering hunter education courses, and to fulfill our legal obligation to issue hunter education certificates for those who want to purchase a hunting license.
Thank you, Gary Crawford,

LOGGING TRUCKS HAVE RIGHT OF WAY
Members need to yield to logging trucks. We have to remember that SAFETY is FIRST on MRC Properties and WE ARE ESSENTIALLY GUESTS on this property. Yes we pay a leasing fee, but the activities of the landowner take priority over our activities. LOGGING TRUCKS HAVE RIGHT OF WAY. Failure to yield will result in LOSS OF YOUR MEMBERSHIP.
