Bethlehem Rod & Gun Club

Bethlehem Rod & Gun Club

In 1941 the Club started in the basement of the Bethlehem Presbyterian Church on Rt 94 heading into Washingtonville NY as a 22 league; hence the name.

Our first deed in Plattekill (for 86 acres) was 1984; with our current club house built in 1985.

We currently own 7 parcels of land totaling 186 acres.

Members enjoy; hunting, fishing, trap, pistol & rifle range, archery, and boating.

Bethlehem Rod and Gun Club is a member of Tri-County Archers Association. The archery committee is co-chaired by Edward Malle and Bob Hillerio.  As a reminder, every person using the facility, must sign in.  Members are responsible for the actions of their guests

Archery is believed to the first step in the shooting sports. Well before pellet, BB and paintball, this is where youth are first exposed to how much fun and challenging the shooting sports can be.

The Bethlehem Rod and Gun Club hosts four 3D archery shoots each year and is looking to expand its program. The Archery Committee is supported by the club and club event fees. We do not to charge kids under 12  at our events and members participate at discounted fees.

Archery Committee

I am proud to say the Bethlehem Rod and Gun Club has a very active archery committee.  The goal of the Archery committee is to expose youth to the outdoors and to encourage others to enjoy the sport of archery through education and instruction in a safe environment.  Each 3D event is supported by volunteers and instructors who are dedicated to the advancement of archery as a means to build confidence in young children and individuals who are new to archery.

The work of the Archery Committee includes the design and construction of the course, trail clearing, marking the course, maintaining the targets, conducting the 3D  shoots and breaking down the course. There are ample opportunities to complete the mandatory work requirement within the archery program.

Hunting Reminder

To all Members,

With hunting season starting soon, a few reminders for a safe season with no issues. In the past there were some issues with the property lines. We do not want any additional issues.  It is the hunter’s responsibility to know where they are. Hunt only on Bethlehem Property. Respect the boundaries.  Do not cross onto another property without express permission. Do not shoot across the property lines. Be respectful, good hunters. And always look beyond the target- be safe.  All stands are supposed to be marked with your name, badge number and phone number. Remember to sign in and out- it is a safety thing; in case someone has an issue or is missing. Stands are supposed to taken down after the season by December 31st. Have fun, good hunting and good luck.

Thank You.  The Board of Directors.

Pheasant Season

Pheasant Season

“Reminder!! The Pheasant Lease is closed until 12/10/22 -the next stocking. We are not allowed to hunt as the farmer and family deer hunt. Thank You and see you the 10th. Bob Bready” bjbready@aol.com

The Club has again leased a property for Pheasant Hunting in Montgomery. We have the use of the same farm as last year and appreciate the Farmer, Bill Hoekstra for sharing his land. The Farm is located on Hoekstra Rd in Montgomery NY.  The schedule will be posted shortly, and we are planning another Youth Hunt in October. Stocking is usually Sat and some Sundays at 7AM. It is a lease, not a preserve, so we have to obey all NYS hunting regulations. You must have a NYS License, wear hunter orange and the daily limit is two pheasants per day. We will also stock chukar and there is a two chukar per day limit as well. We cannot, I repeat cannot hunt other game animals and please don’t ask the landowner. He is a nice guy, but our lease is for Pheasant and chukar only- no ducks, rabbits, deer, or turkey. We don’t pay for additional species, so can’t take them. If you have not hunted the property, please come out with a member who has or better yet, come stock and see the property first-hand, get some work hours and then hunt a little. Contact Bob Bready 845-883-5935 with questions and stay tuned for more info soon.

Chairman: Bob Bready

Any questions, or concerns, please direct them to:
Bob Bready
Pheasant Chairperson
