About Us

Who We Are

Dug Hill Rod & Gun Club is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization in Carroll County, Maryland nestled between the towns of Westminster and Manchester.  We have an active and diverse membership of community members from all walks of life.

Established in 1940, DHRGC was formed as a hunting, fishing, and conservation club for the following purposes:

(1)  To promote good sportsmanship and conservation practices for game, fish, and other natural resources, and

(2)  To promote gun safety and responsible gun ownership,

(3)  To  sponsor 4H Programs and activities in Hunter’s Education and Safety for young people,  and

(4)  To  perform  other  activities  permitted  corporations  under  the  Laws  of  the State  of  Maryland to the extent such activities are permitted of organizations which are  exempt  from  the  Federal  income  tax  under  section  501(c)(3) of  the Internal Revenue  Code  of  1986  (as  amended)  or  the  corresponding  provisions  of  any future  United  States  Internal  Revenue  Law.  

The facility has two trap ranges with the capabilities to throw singles, doubles, and wobble.  There is also an archery range, a 25 yard pistol range, a rifle range for 50, 100, and 200 yards, and a specialized training range that can be used for law enforcement, military, and security training.

Anyone interested in joining the Club must submit a New Member Application along with an application fee of $75 and successfully pass a background check. After successfully passing a background check and paying the annual dues of $125, you will become a member.
