Do you hunt? Are you looking to have an obedient, well-trained retriever?

If you answered YES WISILL Hunting Retriever Club is for you.

WISILL HRC is a family oriented hunting retriever club. Our goal is to help each other become a better trainer and bring out best in their canine companion.

WISILL Trains on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month from April to September. We generally hold our training days at Bong Recreation Area. From time to time we need to move our training location as Bong has other events going on.  Any training date or location changes will be posed on the club Calendar

We hold meetings at St. Ignatius Episcopal Church located at 500 E. Depot St. Antioch, IL (Depot Street & Deep Lake Rd.) 1 mile north of Hwy 173 on Deep Lake) on the First Tuesday of the even numbered months at 7:00pm. Stop by to see what we are all about.
