Overview: The Dunham’s Bay Fish and Game Club, Inc. (i.e., “DBF&G”, “The Club”) is a 501(c)(7) corporation organized…
“…to procure better fishing and hunting for sportsmen in this area; to cooperate in obtaining proper respect for and observation of the New York State Fish and Game Laws; and to promote friendly social contacts among its members.”
The Club’s property and facilities are located at 2080 Ridge Road in Queensbury, New York. At this location, the Club maintains:
A large clubhouse building which contains indoor meeting seating for the membership, an indoor archery range, a computerized shooting simulator, and two bathrooms.
A dedicated outdoor 25-yard pistol range with 10 shooting lanes.
An outdoor 50-lane rifle/pistol shooting range.
An outdoor 3D archery range.
The Club has approximately 600-650 paid memberships, and is only assessable to members, and not the general public, through a keyed security gate.
As a so-called “non-essential business”, the Club formally closed all of its facilities on Sunday March 22nd in accordance with directives by the State of New York. The Club intends to engage in a safe and orderly re-opening process once authorized by the State of New York.

Continue the closure of the clubhouse building until further notice.
Cancellation of on-site meetings/gatherings during May and June 2020.
Require social distancing while members are on-site.
Require the use of facial coverings/masks while members are on-site.
