    There are many. To the south is Tuscarora, near Point of Rocks, MD. Just North on US 15 is Thurmont, with practice on Tuesday evenings. Also, Mt. Airy to the East on I-70, and Carroll County, just a little further on. In PA just north of the PA line is Littlestown (Monday evenings) and North Carroll, near Westminster, MD on Wednesday evenings. All are open to the public and a round will cost you $4 or less.

    Littlestown is the smallest, with a single trap and hand release, but a very nice place to shoot, and excellent target presentation and great background. Most times the kitchen is open.

    Thurmont is a famous large club that had declined and is in a rebuilding stage with two new traphouses and Pat-traps presenting excellent targets and relaxed atmosphere.

    North Carroll, Mt Airy, Tuscarora, and Carroll County are large, full facility clubs with multiple banks of traps. All of these places are within 1/2 hour's drive of Frederick.


    Welcome to the area and enjoy our many opportunities to shoot, almost every night. We're friendly folks, up here, please join us ......mike

    There are a few clubs in that area. Tuscarora, Mt. Airy, Thurmont, Carroll Co., but I would drive a little further to Winchester, Va. They shoot on Tuesday evenings during the week.

    If you live in frederick and you like trap and skeet I would advise tuscarora. After looking at a few different gun clubs to join I went with tuscarora because the people were very nice and welcoming unlike some other clubs. And also it would most likely be the closest other than maybe thurmont, but its about the same either way. All the clubs mike mentioned are good clubs, but I prefer tuscarora.

    Welcome to the area. We're really lucky to have so many clubs within easy reach.

    My home club, Carroll County GC, is hoasting an ATA shoot this Sat and Sun. 300 targets each day. We're located on RT 26 (Liberty Rd.) just east of MD97.

    Here's the link to our webpage: http://www.carrollgun.com/

    Fall leagues start late Aug. Come join us!

    Steve, I just learned from Jim Palmasano that they are devoting one trap to Doubles on Tuesday Nights, at Thurmont. Thurmont is just North of Frederick on US 15. Look up directions on-line, it's a nice place to shoot.
    see U there.....mike
