Who We Are

 The Samoset Rod & Gun Club is a non-profit organization that was established in May 1951. It is a sportsmen's club supporting hunting, fishing and other environmental issues.  The Association also supports the Town of West Bridgewater, WBYAA, Boy Scouts, Scholarship Fund and the Police and Fire Department, among many other things.   

Why Not Join

Samoset Rod & Gun Club is one of a few clubs in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts that raises state supplied pheasants for release during hunting season.  The Samoset is also a member of the GOAL and Plymouth County Leagues.

From The Beginning

The Year was 1951, a time when a group of guys wanted a place to call their own.  They found the land and with pen in hand the Samoset Rod & Gun Club, Inc. was crowned.  Now decades later, many can call it home!

Our Club Today

Sixty-seven years later and although the building and faces changed, the spirit and commitment remains the same and yet, it will always be a place where everybody knows your name!

Membership

Any person twenty-one (21) years of age or older may apply for and shall be provided with an application for Associate Membership provided that the applicant have a valid hunting, fresh or saltwater fishing license, LTC, or an FID card to submit an application.
