  • Thank you for visiting the Fin, Fur, and Feather web site.
  • The Fin, Fur, and Feather is a private, not for profit membership sporting club located on 100 acres overlooking the Charles River at the end of Larch Road in Millis, Massachusetts.
  • One of the oldest sporting clubs in Massachusetts, established in 1927, it was originally located in Natick, and relocated to it’s present location in the early 1950’s.
  • The Club provides a safe, friendly, year round sporting and social experience for members and their guests.
  • Our Indoor and covered Outdoor Pistol Ranges are open 7 Days a week. Our 2 combination Trap/Skeet/ and Sporting Clays Fields are open Saturday and Sunday starting at noon. A third Trap Field is reserved for Shotgun shooting instruction and practice. In addition, there is an outdoor Archery Range, stocked Trout Pond, Game Preserve for Pheasant Hunting, and access to the Charles River for canoeing/kayaking.
  • The Club hosts numerous special events throughout the year; current events are listed on our calendar. Through our affiliation with Gun Owners Action League of Massachusetts (GOAL), we host firearm training clinics, Massachusetts gun law classes, and annual women’s shooting clinics. We also have club members who are certified by the Massachusetts State Police to prepare new shooters for their FID/ LTC Application. During the summer we support a formal Youth Trap Shooting Instructional League led by certified instructors and coaches. During the winter months the Club's Pistol team participates in bullseye shooting leagues.
  • Our Club members come from throughout Eastern Massachusetts. We consider the Club to be a comfortable venue for men, women, youth, and families. The Club has an open membership policy and welcomes new members year round.
