Encompassing over 500 acres of groomed fields and wooded hedgerows specifically maintained for upland bird hunting. The Austerlitz Club offers some of the best pheasant hunting habitat in New York State. The Club offers excellent pheasant hunting with birds raised by our resident manager from day old chicks to ensure good fliers, excellent sport and an outstanding meal at the end of the day. In addition, the club offers chuckers and quail for preseason dog training and hunting during the season. Members may also deer hunt. The Club also offers tower shoots, five-stand and a 400-yard rifle and pistol range. Members and their families may use the one and half acre spring fed pond for dog training, trout fishing, swimming and ice skating.

The Club has a full time manger, living on the property, to maintain the facilities and oversee the hunting operations. Birds can be cleaned and plucked at the end of a hunt at the members request.
