Frequently Asked Questions

  • How has COVID-19 Affected the Club?
    The club is operating normally for all intent purposes. This means that we can have public guests at meetings, Tuesday night trap, and on the range shooting with personal guests (not limited to family only). The Clubhouse will remain closed to the public and non-members for all but meetings. Please review your range rules and follow all applicable safety rules, regulations and protocols. Also with the COVID-19 executive orders still in place, maintain social distancing requirements when other members/guests are present and use the hand sanitizer provided on the range.
    · Hunter Qualification (aka: Hunter Sight-In) has been canceled until further notice!
    · Most public events have been postponed or cancelled and will be addressed at a future date as information becomes available.
    · We are still planning on holding the Fall Flea Market in November, but that too is subject to change.
    · We are going thru this one day at a time, along with you, so please bear with us.

  • Can I sight in my rifle for hunting?
    Hunter Qualification (aka: Hunter Sight-In) has been canceled until further notice!
    Stoney Creek is a private club and the ranges are for members only and their guests, we hope to see you again in 2021 if we are able to open Sight-In to the non-member public. The Maryland DNR Recommended Shooting Ranges lists available Maryland shooting ranges, many that don't require membership and welcome "walk ins". Or see the Maryland Shooter Qualification Calendar for more information on other clubs that may still be providing Hunter Sight-In.

  • I'm interested in joining the club, but I don't know a member for sponsorship.  How can I proceed?  
    If you are interested in joining the club, the best way to meet a potential sponsor is to come to the twice a month general meetings (Second and Last Friday's of the month), which are opened to the public -- the meetings starts at 8pm -- most members start getting there at 6:30pm to have dinner (we have a kitchen) and converse. Also, each Tuesday evening, from 5pm - 9pm, the club is open to the public for trap shooting, which is a great opportunity to meet other enthusiasts and potential member sponsors. Lastly, if you check the events calendar on our website events (both calendar format and download PDF), there are other events opened to the public, such as our spring and fall flea market/raffle, etc.   Check our membership link Join SCFH  for more information.

  • What type of ranges does the club have? 
    The club facilities include clay trap ranges (2 ranges @ 16 yards for 5 shooters with 25 yard handicap capability), covered outdoor ranges (7, 25, 50, 75, 100, 150, 200, 300 yards), and an archery range.  Firearms include all calibers and propellant types up to 50 caliber (but stopping at BMG or larger).  The ranges are opened from Sunrise or 8am (Mon-Sat), and 9am Sunday until Sunset. Our indoor air gun range is opened on "air gun practice" days to accommodate winter early dusk and shooters that wish to keep their skills sharpened. 

  • When are Hunter Safety Classes offered and how do I sign up? 
    · Currently, all DNR events have been cancelled until further notice.
    · Hunter Education information can be found at:  Maryland DNR Hunter Education
    · Hunter Safety class schedules and registration information can be found at:  Maryland DNR Class Listings

  • Hunter Qualification vs Hunter Education -- we get a lot of questions on this, so here is the difference:
    Hunter Qualification: All hunters wanting to participate in managed hunts or wanting to hunt on land requiring this certification must demonstrate proficiency with the firearm / bow to be used during the hunt(s). So its usually a one time event, where you show up with your hunting firearm and prove proficiency and accuracy with that firearm under the observation of a range officer. Hunters who meet certain shooting qualification standards become certified and receive a Maryland State Shooter Qualification Card valid for the current hunting license year, serving as "proof of proficiency". See Maryland Shooter Qualification Calendar for more information.   However, Hunter Qualification (aka: Hunter Sight-In) at SCFHClub has been canceled for the 2020 Season due to COVID-19 restrictions!
    Hunter Education: Hunter Safety (aka: Hunter Education) covers hunter responsibility, firearms and ammunition, firearm handling and safety, marksmanship and shooting fundamentals, principles of wildlife management, bow hunting, muzzle loader hunting, tree stand safety, safety and first aid, water safety, and Maryland legal requirements. So, its usually a structured classroom or online learning event where you, the student, are taught course material and then tested to ensure that you have a working understanding of the concepts. Upon completing the course and passing a knowledge check test, you are issued a Maryland Natural Resources Police, Hunter Education Program card and identification number that is good for life. See Maryland DNR Hunter Education for more information.   However, all Department of Natural Resources (DNR) events at SCFHClub have been postponed until further notice due to COVID-19 restrictions.
