About

The Acee family at Vernon National

Three generations of the Acee family

Vernon National Shooting Preserve is Central New York’s version of South Dakota Pheasant Hunting. 

Great pheasant hunting, on 500 acres of diversified cover. Pheasants are stocked weekly, as well as daily for scheduled hunts. Bring your dog or let us take you out for a morning or afternoon hunt. 

Memberships available as well as daily non-member hunts. 

A Family Run Hunting & Shooting Preserve

This old family farm has been in the Acee family for over 20 years where they operated a dairy and crop business. The Acee family still owns and runs Vernon National. Whatever they can do to help, make it better, or enhance your hunt, shoot, lesson, or meeting–  all you need do is ask.

How ’bout a round of sporting clays?

14 diversified stations off of hills, over ravines, open fields and through the trees. It’s all automatic. No trapper needed, use our fully automated i-Pull card system. Shoot all you want, any way, at any station!
