Welcome to the Crum Elbow Sportsmen's Association website. Whether you're a first time visitor, prospective member or an established member, you should find whatever information you are looking for about the club here. If not, see the list of contacts who would be happy to help with any questions you may have.
For the first timers, check out all the features of club facilities, such as the clubhouse, skeet/trap, range and the pond. We are located in historic Hyde Park with directions indicated on the map. You may consider becoming a member in which case you can peruse the information required to obtain membership as well as the benefits and responsibilities thereof.
Once you are a member, you probably want to see what's happening at the club (there is always something). And when you have some time to help out at the club and fulfill your work hours, an updated schedule of work party events can be consulted. Members requiring access to the member area can send an email to crumelbow@gmail.com for the id/password to access the page.


Backtags and Paper Tags
  A new law was just passed and backtags are no longer required while hunting anywhere in NYS. Hunters will not get a backtag with their 2024-25 hunting license. In addition, all licenses and tags will now be printed on plain paper. The special Valeron material will no longer be used.  Carcass tags must still be filled out, dated, signed, and attached to the animal, so additional care must be taken to protect them from being damaged, destroyed, or unreadable. Information on the new tags and tips for protecting the tags can be found here: https://dec.ny.gov/sites/default/files/2024-01/plainpaperconversion.pdf

NRA Basic Muzzleloading/Black Powder Class
    On September 7, 2024 from 8:30am-7pm, we will be hosting a muzzleloading/black powder class. Class will cover Pistol, Rifle, and Shotgun. More information can be found on the event calendar. 

Federation Legislative VP
    It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Federation Legislative VP and long time Board member Bill Conners. Bill was a very prominent member of the shooting and hunting community. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers. A celebration of life will be announced and held at a later time.
