  • No hunting at Fagan Branch

    It seems to me that everybody knows you can’t hunt on Fagan Branch, been that way since the lake opened, 15 plus years. Nobody has hunted there… nobody! Given its status as a “protected” lake it’s become a sanctuary for waterfowl. A place where they could rest and roost unmolested by hunters.
