Does anyone have any experience with, know anyone who has been with, or heard of anyone who has joined Sunrise Farm Gun and Rod Club?

 

Im currently looking around to try and join a club since I dont have and dont really know anyone with private land to hunt and didnt have much luck on state land last season..

 

If possible if anyone also has any other suggestions in regards to clubs in Westchester, Putnum, Orange, Sullivan or Delaware counties any info would be greatly appreciated...

Hi Sinjelam  Angle Fly preserve in Westchester county is a park open to NY residents to bow hunt provided you can show you can shoot . Qualifying is done sometime near the end of the summer and  an orientation meeting are a few of the requirements in place you need to adhere too .But overall is a simple process and one worth the effort. There is also DEC  property that butts up to the preserve and there are is a healthy deer herd in there .The other preserves and parks are only open to Westchester county residents and Rockefeller is a lottery based hunt. good luck.

I don't know anything about this club but usually when a club has low annual relative to the amount of property it owns it means there are a lot members to split the bill but this also means a lot of members will also be on the property.

Bordering property is DEP, not DEC.

Additionally, this is sidetracking the thread, but the OP would probably want to know the contact person is Bob and there's a few more rules to hunting the Preserve side than just qualification and orientation, there's also the requirement of using a climber tree stand as you are not allowed to hunt deer from the ground.

I actually gave them a call today to grab a little more info and was told that between NY and PA they have about 5000 acres.

A couple of differently plots starting in Monticello headed upward. He did mention that last year they had about 130 members between the two states 30 of which were full members..

He said that majority of the members live and primarily hunt further upstate and that the lower hunting lands don't see as many hunters since a lot of them love closer to the other lands...

They don't have any lodging it anything of that sort either which is one of the reasons why the annual dues are lower but would still rather have some input from some who may have had experience with the club

That much land for that amount of hunters is a very good ratio.

I got issue with putting out cash right up front for something I don't even get to see.

 

I mean the way the site reads is you pay to be a member of air with no one even havin to see you first. doesn't mean its not legit. just if it were me I would want some kind of assurance im not getting ripped off.

 

otherwise it aint that bad

I absolutely agree. When I spoke with the gentleman yesterday he informed me that if I wanted to join I could do so at any particular time but they so have a couple of events coming up that would allow me to meet some

Of the members and so on. He also gave me the member info for the website to check out the lands that they lease and there are a good number of them I must say.. I'm thinkin of driving up and scouting some of them out sometime soon but other than that everything else sounds pretty legit.. There was no pressure to join, he made it clear that if I had any questions or needed any assistance I should reach out so so far no complaints..

Probably more like $600 for full member, since you'll need to sell $100 raffles per year and attend a work day, or pay a $50 fine if you don't. The $450 seems deceiving.

True he said the work day is a half day just posting up signs on the properties and so on..

Otherwise in comparison to other clubs if it's as god as t looks that's an amazing price for that amount of land.. Il keep ou guys posted on wha the outcome is

They have been around a long time is all I know, we have some old white posted signs bordering part of our property in Deleware where Sunrise Farm used to lease property from our neighbor. I think the still lease land in EastBranch.

      Hey everyone. Looking to join a hunting club in light of the upcoming start of the  2017-2018 deer season. I live in Elmira and work a lot, so ideally I would like to hunt as close to where I live as possible. I almost exclusively bowhunt, but will use a rifle periodically. I just moved here from Atlanta about a year ago, so I'm still relatively new to the area and haven't found a place to hunt yet. Thank you!

      Robinwood Park is a family-oriented hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, skiing, ATVing, and and canoeing club located in the Town of Long Lake near the former village of Sabattis, NY. The Club owns 4100 acres and also leases about 3500 acres of land from Lyme Adirondack Timberlands and was first established over 40 years ago as a hunting and fishing club on forests previously owned by Abbot Augustus Low, Herbert Henry Lehman (governor of New York State from 1933 to 1942), and International Paper Company. Bog Lake, Clear Pond, and Rainer Pond are NY State owned water bodies contained entirely or mostly within club borders. Miles of headwater streams in highlands and spruce bogs of the club feed the Bog, Oswegatchie, Beaver, and Raquette Rivers. Lows Lake adjoins the western club boundary and Lake Lila is a few miles south along the Adirondack Scenic Railway. The main inflow to Lows Lake is the Bog River which flows out of the mile-long Bog Lake and Clear Pond. Largemouth bass are abundant in all lakes, whereas native brook trout are abundant in Bog Lake and rainbow trout are stocked into Clear Pond. Deer, bears, rabbits, eagles, loons, grouse, and now-moose are commonly slighted on the lease.
       
       
      The few images above show Robinwood Park (and surroundings) at a glance; hold your cursor over images to view their captions. Many adiditonal images are provided on other pages.
      The club is composed of 45 private cabins and two cabins that are shared by members who are unassociated with a private cabin. Both cabins have propane cook stoves and lamps and a wood stove. A smaller cabin has two bedrooms and can sleep up to 6 people, whereas the larger cabin has 4-5 bedrooms and can sleep up to 10 people. A main lodge, next to the small club cabin has running water, a generator, and is used mainly for cooking, meetings, meals, and entertainment. We are located about 20 miles NW of Long Lake. The main gate is located west of Little Tupper Lake near the large dirt parking area that was once the Sabattis Station (nearby Hotel) at the long forgotten village of Sabattis, NY. The club cabins and main lodge are located 0.9 mile SW of the main gate and Bog and ClearLakes are another 4.0 miles further into the property. A recently dismantled 6-bedroom log cabin was once located on the rocky point overlooking Bog Lake. The road continues 3 miles past the lakes and then begins a 6 mile loop with numerous logging roads and trails branching off; some are overgrown and some are active. A few lead to active beaver ponds and meadows or recently cleared log landings.
      Robinwood Park truely represents the “Real Adirondacks”. Club members treat others as family and go out of there way to help when/where needed. There are always some event or activity for everyone to enjoy. Our annual summer picnic and winter banquet (and 1 or 2 work weekends) permit members to socialize as much or as little as they wish. Timber harvests were completed 3-to-4 years ago and allow members opportunity to see parts of the landscape not seen in decades. Several 20-acre clear cuts have been done to help promote grouse and woodcock populations. The logging in selected areas will also improve forage for, and the survival of, local deer herds. Whether you want to hike the backwoods; stroll down a dirt road or old skidway; canoe miles of flows and lakes; hunt deer, bear, or grouse; fish for trout or bass, atv or snowmobile; socialize with other members; enjoy a camp fire; or simply read a book by a cozy woodstove, the lands (and members) of Robinwood exemplify what the Real Adirondacks are all about.
