The Otter River Sportsman´s Club (ORSC) is one of the most active sportsman’s clubs in Worcester County. The club is dedicated to safe responsible hunting, wildlife preservation, conservation of land and sportsman´s education.
The ORSC is located on 115 acres of plush land, with 95 acres of forest stewardship in the Otter River section of Templeton, Massachusetts. The forest is a favorite among local hunters because it is home to moose, deer, bear and many other types of game.
The ORSC owns a 100 yard pistol and rifle range as well as an archery range. The Otter River Sportsmans Club also maintains a strong association with both the National Rifle Association as well as the Gun Owners Action League of Massachusetts and the Worcester County League of Sportsmen.
In addition to a large and fertile hunting area, the club also has a private 10 acre pond. The pond is regularly stocked with trout and a plethora of large mouth bass, bluegill, and dace. Fishing is excellent in both the summer and the winter. Bass and trout are regularly caught through the ice.
The grounds also have a softball field with an outside refreshment shack. The outside pavilion seats 300 people and is the perfect location for events and weddings. It includes BBQ pits, seafood bake pits, a summer kitchen, bar, lighted horseshoe pit, and a volleyball court.
The ORSC also is a member of the American Chestnut foundation, through selective cutting of our own forest and the replanting of American Chestnut Trees, we plan to not only help revitalize the American Chestnut, but also provide more fertile land to help wildlife feed and grow.
If you´re a sportsman looking for a great, active club to be a part of, please contact one of the officers, board members, or current members with any questions you might have. We would be happy to host your next event including summer cookouts, weddings and winter ice fishing events. Please contact us for more information.
