Why does AWA exist?

In building Hunting Sports Plus (HSP), it became apparent that the farther away we expanded from our base, the more difficult it became to maintain control of land, and rapport with land owners.

Once AWA establishes clubs to cover the country, then HSP can reduce its territory to a 100 mile radius of its office, which will greatly improve its control, and profit. A 100 mile distance is the optimum stretch for efficiency and profitability, which is the maximum area we recommended for all other AWA clubs. HSP has members throughout the USA, most of whom would prefer to join a local AWA club in their own area, if one existed, which would be better for both the member and HSP as well as the out of state members future club, which could be yours.

How does AWA work?

Once your hunting club business opportunity application is approved, you will be invited to our headquarters to learn the ins and outs of the business and answer any remaining questions you may have. Once everyone is comfortable to move forward, we will handle several legal documents, and begin full training.

Here is a sample timeline:
1. You will attend 2-4 training sessions to build your membership base within 2-3 months
2. 100 Charter Members Training
3. Leasing Land Training
4. Member recruiting seminar
5. Hold a membership organizational meeting where by-laws, elections, voting, etc. will take place.
6. Members will be assigned, ID photo's taken, and instruction for use of the club and online reservation system

Within the first 6 months, your hunting club will begin sprouting with members paying $1500 or more per year; thus creating a $1.5 million dollar business a year. Who can argue with that?

What can AWA offer me?

AWA is here to watch you succeed in the hunting business. We will teach you, inspire you, mentor you and continue to create opportunity for you and your members.

Remember you are not in business by yourself, but for yourself. You will have 300+ allies supporting and protecting your club.

Back to Questions


When can I be a part of AWA?

NOW! There is never going to a "perfect" moment. This is a lifestyle opportunity change to create financial security for you and your family. You do not want to be that person that regrets not walking through the door of opportunity.

Back to Questions


What do I do as a club owner?

Your two primary responsibilities are to sell memberships and lease land. While there are other business responsibilities, we provide you ALL the training you will need to run a successful Hunt Club.

Networking with fellow hunters and business is a key to marketing your Hunt Club as well. Once you have attended the trainings, you will be equipped for success.

Back to Questions


Is the AWA reservation service free?

Good question. The AWA reservation service is not free, there is a small amount paid to the AWA Reservation Service for each membership you sell, and a small amount monthly for the maintenance of the reservation service. The initial amount is an initiation fee which can be paid by the member rather than you, and the monthly is for dues and monthly maintenance, again which can be paid by your club or the member.

Back to Questions


What kind of profit can I expect from my new hunting club?

This varies widely, largely dependent on your skills as a business manager. We feel you should be content with 20 to 25% net profit, before taxes. When your club has 1,000 members, and they pay an average of $1,500 a year, you are grossing $1.5 million dollars a year. Thus, your net profit would be $300,000 to $375,000. You can maintain this profit by watching your costs carefully, and maintain a low attrition ratio of land and members.

Back to Questions


How long will it take to get 1,000 members?

We will show you how to get your first 100 in 2-3 months.

Back to Questions


How much land will I need for my first 100 Charter Members?

First things first, focus on your membership. Acquire members first, and then land. We estimate you should strive to lease 35,000 acres AFTER you have 100 charter members. Most of the land will not cost until you are ready to begin operating and already have incoming cash flow. The usual questions of thinking you can't get land for affordable prices, or you can't sell memberships without land, are all covered in our training, which is tried, and proven over 23 years.

Back to Questions


How much land do I need for my additional members?

As mentioned above, you should strive for at least 35,000 acres. The amount of land is determined by your location, and the mixture of members you have.

If members are predominantly anglers, you won't need much land, just a few nice lakes to fish. Waterfowl hunters don't need much land either, while deer hunters need 25 to 100 acres depending on the area. Heavily wooded timber or bow hunting doesn't require as much land per hunter as lightly wooded land with high powered rifles. Upland bird hunters need the most land. As a rule of thumb, we try to maintain 200 acres per member.

Once you get experience with your land and your members, you will be able to determine if you need to be prepared to have 25%, 50%, or 75% of your members on the land at the same time. You will soon develop a feel for your comfort level with land. If land in your area is prohibitively expensive, you will need to minimize your acres per member, or charge higher dues, to maintain more land.

We don't profess to be knowledgeable about the carrying capacity of land or costs of leasing, outside of the Midwest. You are responsible for doing your own homework to learn what you need to know about your area, which you don't already know. With our extensive training, you will be able to best gauge the most beneficial route for your members and their needs.

Back to Questions


How many AWA clubs will there be in the USA?

AWA's vision is to have at 300 clubs throughout the USA.

Our intent is to cover the country with clubs which will lease 100,000 acres within 100 miles of their respective office, and sell memberships to 1000 sportsmen in that same area.

Back to Questions


Will I have protected territories?

You can lease land anywhere, but no AWA club owner should make any effort to lease land leased by another AWA club owner. You can sell memberships anywhere in the USA, but if you sell to a member in someone else's proprietary county, there is a nominal penalty to pay to the club owner in that area. It is unethical business practice to cannibalize another club for their land or members, and should not even be considered. If you have any additional questions not listed here, please contact us!
