Welcome to Barton on Humber Wildfowlers Club website

Barton-on-Humber Wildfowling Club was formed in 1967 and has progressively grown since that time and worked hard over these years to obtain its own shooting areas and gain permissions from local land owners to access areas for wildfowling, game shooting and pigeon shooting.

The club has a number of acres of wetland and farmland that we not only shoot but help to maintain and protect for future generations. As custodians of the land, we carry out important preservation work, including erecting & mending of fences and footpaths, trimming back vegetation overgrowth and cutting of hedges, clearing ponds etc. All of this work is important to help maintain the natural habitat of the quarry we seek and encouraging the natural stock of wildfowl.

The sport of wildfowling goes back generations and it is a particular type of individual who endures to take part, as in our great British climate, wildfowling isn’t a glamorous sport.  Many times our members sit patiently waiting in cold or wet conditions for their quarry to arrive and often go home soggy and empty handed, without their Sunday roast!  However, as the chilly wind bites at your face or the drizzle of rain patters on your water-proofs, the serenity of the landscape and the stunning country-side surrounding you, give time for quiet contemplation, as you wait for that illusive quarry.
