PROGRAMS

During specific seasons, on the club's 16-acres of private property, waterfowl hunting from the two points of land that jut out into Sengekontacket Pond is bountiful. Just bring your gun, dog and put out the decoys. Many hunters have enjoyed a delicious duck or goose dinner from the club's flyways. Hunting on the club's property is for members only.

HUNTING
 
FISHING

The club's easy access to its 1/2 mile of private shoreline on spectacular Sengekontacket Pond offers many action-packed opportunities for fabulous saltwater fishing from the shore or boat. 

 

Use of the club's beach is for members only.

SHELL
FISHING

Imagine your own island clambake, fresh corn on the cob, grilled new potatoes, warm melted butter and your favorite beverage. You can begin it all just by bringing your rake and clam basket to the club's private beach, wading out into the water, and gathering your own shellfish.

 

Shell fishing at the club is for members only. Also, you must live in Edgartown and have an Edgartown Shell Fishing License.

 

On Sunday afternoons throughout the year, members and their guests enjoy "breaking the clay birds" on the club's regulation skeet, trap and modern skeet field. Many of the members go fishing in the morning, and then enjoy the fun of shooting the shotgun sports in the afternoon.

The range is staffed every Sunday with a volunteer range officer. Ammunition, shell pouches and mandatory ear and eye protection are available. Skeet and trap may also be arranged on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and on Mondays when it is a Federal or State holiday. Members just have to contact one of the volunteer range officers

The club was one of the first sportsmen's clubs in the country to become environmentally sensitive. By using non-toxic shot, black biodegradable targets and "hand cleaning" the grounds twice a year, the club has been applauded by local, state and federal environmental agencies. Our range has a complete sprinkler system that keeps the weekly groomed fields lush and green. 

Guests are invited but must be accompanied by a member.

SKEET
& TRAP
 
 

A member can practice and shoot skeet and trap by himself when he joins the Ventriloquist Club. The Ventriloquist is a device that the shooter clips on his belt and is voice activated, resulting in the release of the trap when the shooter says "pull." It's easy to practice skeet and trap a lot differently if you're alone. Just keep shooting your problem stations over and over - with no concern about holding up the squad.

 

To join the Ventriloquist Club you (a) must be a Range Officer and (b) must contribute towards the maintenance of the Ventriloquist system..
