A Hunting Tradition Since 1928

The Perfect Location

Nestled in the backwoods of Columbia County, New York.

Established in 1928, the Austerlitz Club is one of the oldest private hunting preserves in the United States. Here you will find some of the best pheasant hunting habitat in New York. Located in scenic northern Columbia County, approximately two and a half hours from New York City, the club has 455 acres of groomed fields, wooded hedgerows, and forest all specifically maintained for upland bird hunting.

A Premier Hunting Club

Experience Bird Hunting at its Finest

Each year we raise just over 23,000 pheasants from day old chicks. The club has a full-time
Manager/Game Keeper, living on the property, who along with his staff raise the birds. This ensures
good fliers, excellent sport, and an outstanding meal at the end of the hunt. Quail are available for pre-
season dog training and for hunting during the season. If available chucker can also be hunted.

When the hunt is over relax in comfort in the clubhouse while sitting in front of the fireplace.

Membership is limited to ensure ready access to the club facilities. Applicants can apply and be placed
on a waiting list if membership is at the maximum. An application is available in the Membership
