A chinese lion statue Dansville Fish and Game club was founded in 1875 in Dansville, New York, and originally located on Route 36 South about a half mile from the present location. It was known at that time as the Dansville Sportsmanís Club and remained at this location until late in 1946.

At this time, 19 acres of land were purchased from the Scoville Estate on Gibson Street in Dansville. About half of the acreage is in the village and the other half is in the Town of North Dansville. In 1947 the State of New York sold a one story building to the membership   for a sum of $1.00. This building was built in the Franklin Roosevelt era as a civilian conservation camp and had served its usefulness at that time.  The offer was made and accepted and the building was moved to its present location in  Deer Park, what is now known as The Dansville Fish & Game Club Properties.

The club now sits on 90+ acres of the nicest club in the Southern Tier of Upstate NY, we offer skeet and trap shooting, Archery 3-D shoots, a 175 yard rifle range, 4 annual raffles, including 2 cash raffles and 2 gun raffles, along with many other events. Clubhouse rentals for parties, hunter safety courses and nearly 500 members.

The Dansville Fish and Game was awarded the (NYSCC) New York State Conservation Council Presidents Award for 2010 Club of the year! This is a great honor for our club, as there are several hundred clubs in the State. A big Thank You to Bob Ciecierega for the nomination and hard work to get your club nominated for this prestigious award!
