 Welcome to the Mountaineer Chapter web site!!!  Check out the pages under Navigation to learn more about the Mountaineer Chapter.
 The Mountaineer Chapter of the Izaak Walton League was formed in 1956 and is located 5 miles east of Beverly, WV, on the headwaters of Files Creek in Randolph County.
The chapter at this time has about 400 members who are dedicated to the wise use of our natural resources. To assure this knowledge is passed on, many youth activities are sponsored by our chapter.
We offer prime hunting on our 1100 acres of mountain land.  We also have a small pond that we stock twice each year; once with trout and once with catfish, that provide members and their families with catch and release fishing.  The Tygart Valley Muzzleloaders built and maintain a shooting range on club property, which is available for use by club members.
To conserve, restore, and promote the sustainable use and enjoyment of our natural resources, including soil, air, woods, waters, and wildlife.
"To strive for the purity of water, the clarity of air, the wise stewardship of the land and its resources; to know the  beauty and understanding of nature and the value of wildlife, woodlands and open spaces; to the preservation of this hertige and to mans sharing in it ,"  " I pledge myself as a member of the Izaak Walton League of America" .
