Onondaga County Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs

The Onondaga County Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs represents between 35 and 40 active sporting clubs in the Central New York area, representing, in total, over 10,000 active sportsmen and women.

Since 1928, OCFSC has supported programs and activities which are crucial to the sustainability of our hunting and fishing heritage, such as public education and safety outdoor sporting events and legislative change.

Women In Nature

The Women in Nature program was designed as a way to get more women involved in outdoor activities, such as hunting, fishing, archery, trapping, outdoor cooking and competitive shooting sports. Every year the WIN program attracts hundreds women and girls of all skill levels, filling to capacity every year.

Sportsmen's Days

CANCELLED - The 2020 Honeywell Sportsmen’s Days event, Sponsored by Onondaga County at Carpenter’s Brook Fish Hatchery.

After careful consideration and discussion with our sponsors, directors and event planning committee, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Honeywell Sportsmen’s Days at Carpenter’s Brook Fish Hatchery.

As many other events cancelled early on, we waited, holding out as long as we could, seeking any change in the pandemic conditions and regulations that would allow us to proceed. Unfortunately, these changes never happened, and with even more strict requirements handed down from New York State regarding visitors from other nearby states who usually attend, we had no other choice but to cancel this year’s event.

Our first concern will always be to hold an event that is safe for our event visitors, staff and volunteers and the facility.

Held every September at Carpenter's Brook, Sportsman Days celebrates National Hunting and Fishing Day and is one of the largest such events in New York State. This family oriented event includes numerous outdoor activities for both adults and children.

Pheasant Program

The Pheasant Release Program began at the Jamesville Correctional Facility and is now a joint project between Onondaga County and several of the Federation's clubs. Every year the program raises and releases nearly 4000 pheasants across public lands to help support upland hunting throughout Central New York.
