welcome SKS I live in Roanoke. Its nice to see someone here that is closeby.Do you hunt farm land in FC or do you go somewhere else?
I have a small farm in Boutetout and i have a smaller piece of land that joins a WMA in rke. county. I do alot of hunting on National forest land. My son is getting old enough to go with me now. Maybe we can compair notes and do a hunt or two sometime.
Glad to see some Virginia replies. I am in the Richmond area and I am also fairly new to hunting. I was planning on checking out some of the WMA's that are posted on the VDGIF's website this season. The website gives fairly good descriptions of the land so it would be a good tool for you to use to find land to hunt in your area.
If anyone knows of additional resources for finding hunting land, hunt clubs or leases in VA I would love some advice. I am looking for waterfowl, deer, and turkey.
I take it from your name you duck hunt. I have done a little and plan on getting a boat to do more, my old partner moved and left me high and dry. He showed me some good places before he move, we always had good luck when we went. We have some good rivers and lakes around here for ducks and geese.
I have gotten to know where i hunt pretty good over the years, but i am always on the look out for somewhere different. I have checked out the "find game" on the web site, but for the national forest i prefer their maps better.
Over the years I have seen several elk and deer hides left in the woods by hunters and I have to wonder why they do this? I fully understand and agree about getting the hide off the animal as soon as possible to cool the meat, but why not pack out the hide with you and use it? As far as I know there are no state laws that require you to take the hide home, but to me why waste such a beautiful part of the animal? Some might think they have no use for the hide or it costs too much to tan....
