The Cumberland Beagle Club was founded in 1946 by 25 recently returned WWII servicemen and has a long and proud history of promoting and advocating the hunting, fishing, and shooting sports in its local communities. As written in the club’s by-laws “The purpose of the association will be to conserve, restore and manage the fish, game and other wildlife and its habitat within Rhode Island. In addition, the club also seeks to procure better hunting and fishing areas for sportsman alike.”
The club has various rifle, pistol, trap, shotgun and archery ranges along with a stocked trout pond. The club is open to the public for many of its shoots, dinners, leagues and other activities all year long. With 600 members the chances are good that you know a member of the club and we always encourage our membership to bring their family and friends to the club.
