The Mad River Club is believed to be the second oldest sportsmen’s club in New York State having been incorporated in 1894.

Our club has over 300 members.

We currently lease or own over 16,000 acres in New York State.

Our primary properties are located in Oswego County, on the Tug Hill Plateau. We also lease three different parcels in the “central southern tier”.

Follow this thread to your chance to go on a guided waterfowl hunt;

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Fall-2021-Guided-Finger-Lakes-Eastern-Flyway-Waterfowl-Hunt-for-4-Persons/164627278570

A little backstory – Jay Barnes, owner of Frontenac Fowlers donated this hunt a year ago to a Wounded Warriors in Action Finger Lakes Chapter banquet.

I bought the hunt, and am now donating the hunt for a NYSCC fundraiser. Jay is an excellent guide, and a dedicated conservationist.

Please spread the word far and wide! Let’s get the bidding going!
