The Modesto Houndsmen of California was formed in the 1970s to preserve hound hunting. MHC is a local organization representing hound hunters across the central valley in California. MHC works with California Houndsmen for Conservation and other Outdoor organizations to preserve our hunting heritage and the use of our public land for recreation.
MHC has two fundraisers a year. February is our Annual Crab Feed and May is our Annual Field Trail. The money that is raised at the fundraisers goes back in to our community. MHC sponsors hunter safety courses and awards scholarships for higher education. Money that is raised also is donated to other outdoor organizations to help preserve our right for recreation, conservation, and the use of public lands
