Hey thanks a bunch for the advice, Bullbuster & tesoronut. I'm active AF and have spent the last five years stuck in UT hunting the mulies. Worst of all there were no turkeys, squirrels or hogs. Only two months left in korea then I'll be VA bound. How do the hunt clubs work? Is there like 50 hunters and 1 acre? Do they work on a point system for choice stands? Is there a limited number of deer tags? Again thanks for the info.

Plenty of turkeys and squirrels around here. I'm not a big fan of hunt clubs that use dogs, but that's just due to the bunch around here. As for deer tags, you should get enough to keep your freezer full when you buy your license. I,m about a 2 hour plus drive west of Va. Beach, and I can hook you up with some good still or stand hunting, turkeys and squirrels(on private land). Let me know when you can go......

Hey that sounds great, it's always hard moving to a new area and not spend years finding decent areas to hunt. I don't know about hunting with dogs, I'm more of a tree stand hunter or a good old drive kind of hunter. This will be a big change from hunting in UT where if you don't get a tag in the first few days for bow or gun- your butt out. I'll definatly give you a shout... Thanks

You will enjoy the farm here. Won't cost you a penny. I don't like deer dogs, either (could you tell) lol They may be in these woods running, or they may not. But if they run one by you, you will know what to do..... Yes

I've heard of dogs driving deer, sounds like a cheap way of hunting. Thought they were only used on racoon hunting. Back home they have coyotes which are open game. At that point you may become part of the food chain. Maybe I should bring a side-arm-- later

Hey Bucktail, I am stationed here in Va Beach. We do a lot of deer hunting on the bases here. We have 4 bases that we can hunt on, all within 30-40 minutes drive of Norfolk. Let me know when you get in town and I can fill you in on what all you need to do to hunt them.

Bucktail
here is a link to the hunting info (regs and maps) of the 4 local Navy bases. NAS Oceana, Dam Neck, NALF Fentress, and NSA Northwest Annex. I'll have to dig up the hunt info for Langly when I get home for you.

Here is a like for hunting and fishing Ft. Eustis. Best bet is to call them as some info is out dated.

http://www.eustismwr.com/eustismwr.phtml?pageid=63

I can't find the link for Langley but I'll get in tough with a guy I know that is stationed their and get it from him. He hunts it almost daily.

Hey sorry I didn't get back with you. Didn't know there was two pages to this forum. Do you know if there is a limited amount of folks allowed to hunt on these bases? I know in UT you had to draw for a bow tag and they only accepted 4 people max to hunt the range. Kind of sucked if you already scouted and played your cards on a hunt. I'm checking out the links- thanks again

Hey Bucktail, we don't have any regulations like that on the bases here in VA Beach. The main thing you will run into here is running out of hunting areas. Depending on what you hunt with it can be a problem sometimes. You said you bow hunt so you are good to go but if you want to hunt with muzzy or shotgun it can be a problem early in the seaon when the "fair weather" hunters are still out. Dam Neck, Fentres and North West have plenty of room though. We have a pretty strict QDM program here at Oceana also that limits what you can harvest but the other bases are not so bad. I'll PM you my e-mail addresses and we can talk more.
