Mass Wild Life Proposed New Fees

The Andover Sportsmen's Club (the "Club") is a member of the  League of Essex County Sportsmen's Clubs (the "League").  This league was established to to promote a cooperative program for protection, propagation and restoration of forests, fish, and game, to promote and establish more cordial relations between sportsmen and landowners, to cooperate and assist in the enforcement of the game laws and to promote, protect and perpetuate PUBLIC hunting, fishing and trapping in this Commonwealth.

League Meetings occur on the 3rd Thursday of the month at Danvers Fish and Game in Middleton, MA. There are no meetings in July and August. Should you be interested in representing the Club please contact either Jonathan Belinowiz ( or Frank Bleszinskii (

At the most recent Legue meeting, Mass Wildlife presented a proposed new fee schedule to (1) address their revenue shortfall, (2) sustain the Inland fish and Game Fund for another decade, (3) to be comparable to other New england states and (4) to go into effect in 2022. This new fee schedule would be the 1st increase in 26 years.
