Markel Specialty offers coverage specifically designed for rod and gun clubs

You know the risks in your business. Thankfully, so does Markel Specialty.

Even though you’re a private rod or gun club and you own all your land (or the majority of land is subject to a long-term lease on which club-approved activities take place), you can still be at risk for liability and property claims, frivolous lawsuits, and more. That’s where Markel Specialty’s insurance for rod and gun clubs can help.

Markel Specialty offers a wide range of coverages designed just for private sporting clubs, including:

  • Hunting and fishing clubs
  • Sportsman’s clubs and private shooting clubs

These clubs may also offer:

  • Lodging, including food and beverage services, for both members and guests
  • Limited use of club facilities for fee-paid social events and charitable fund-raising activities

Why do I need insurance for my rod and gun club?

Your club probably has guests, special events, transportation equipment, and much more. With that kind of lineup, it doesn’t take much to put the club’s assets at an increased risk of claims or lawsuits.

Here are some actual claims we’ve paid out to our clients*:

  • A storm blew electrical lines down causing spoilage of frozen meat and business income loss for our client’s rod and gun club.
  • Storm damage to the roof of a client’s clubhouse caused water leakage and damage.
  • Golf carts were stolen from our client’s club.
  • A staff member’s dog bit a child on the face.

Note: we are unable to provide coverage for clubs without established bylaws, homeowner associations, and public shooting facilities open to walk-ins in this program.
