West Michigan Open Invitation Fox Hunt

A “Tune-Up In the Park” Fox Hunting exercise will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2024.  Whether you are just beginning to be interested in fox hunting or you are a seasoned veteran, plan on being at Douglas Walker Park from 9 am to 12 noon.  There will be at least five micro-transmitters hidden in the park for you to take your time locating, practicing your skills, and debugging your equipment.  At noon, the park activity will stop, and a live “fox” will go on the air, located within eight miles of the start.

There will be experienced fox hunters to help with your equipment and techniques.  If you have a fox box or a micro/mini fox and would like to bring it to the park to be used, please contact the event coordinator, Tom Bosscher, K8TB at .  

Douglas Walker Park is on 84th Street, 1.5 miles west of US-131 exit 74, Byron Center.

Please note that the park grounds are very wet from the winter snow, and rather sloppy. Use appropriate  footwear accordingly.
