The Treasure Coast Hunting and Fishing Club offers the finest quail hunting anywhere in Southern Florida. But there is so much more: Pheasant, chukar, duck hunting, trap field, bass fishing, flats boat fishing on the Indian River Lagoon for snook, redfish, spotted sea trout, and deep sea fishing. We are committed to an excellent sporting experience for our members and guests.
The Treasure Coast Club is owned and operated by Bill Jacobs. Bill has a long resume as a club owner, guide, top-notch dog trainer, author, inventor, and sportsman. He has been guiding hunts since 1966. Has owned and trained two national NSTRA (National Shoot To Retrieve Association) champions and has been an NSTRA judge. He was the past president of the Southeast Michigan Bird Dog Club.
While wintering in Florida in the 90's Bill began working with the Bonnette Hunt Club in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Bonnette's was founded by William Bonnette in the late 50's, the Club was one of the most prestigious in America. Then, Donn Byrne, a good friend, avid sportsman and mentor,convinced Bill to open his own club, The Palm Beach Fish & Game Club, in Martin County just north of the Palm Beaches.
But as development encroached on the Bonnette club’s location, the two clubs decided to merge forming the Treasure Coast Hunting & Fishing Club in 1999 in Palm City, Florida. The Bonnette Lodge is still open for monthly barbecues, parties and events. Bill and his wife Jody were married at the Bonnette Lodge in 1999.
The Treasure Coast club features 7 separate hunting fields on beautiful South Florida ranch land. There are 10 guides with over 100 years of experience between them. Our dogs are world class. Bill’s specialty is training pointing dogs and he is one of the best trainers in the country. His experience really shows in how the dogs handle on a hunt. Many members and guests bring their own dogs for their hunt.
In Field Hunting System: Bill Jacobs wrote the book on high quality quail hunting. (click here) Our members hunt all over the country and for that matter, much of the world. They tell us, “We come to the Treasure Coast Club because the quail hunting is the best!”
Using the “In Field Hunting System”, “wild coveys” of quail are formed from pen-raised birds. When released in the fields, these quail behave like wild coveys. The result is exciting, action packed, “wild covey” quail shooting.
The “In Field System”, with Johnny House plans and compete “How To” is available here.
