VIRGINIA HUNTING FORUMS

There use to be a good active hunting forum for the state of Virginia but I can find it anymore.
Anyone know of any other Virginia hunting forums?

Hey fellow Virginia hunter

How is your season going? I have only been able to get out three times, but I have had an unbelievable amount of action. Last night I had three young bucks fighting directly below my stand. It was really something. The woods are starting to get crazy. I am not familiar with any Virginia forums, but would be interested if you find any.

Good Luck!

VIRGINIA HUNTING FORUMS

I have seen more deer in the past two weeks than I saw all last season.
On saturday i saw two bucks and a doe. the doe and the first buck were both too far away for me. The second buck was huge and I refused to let it go. I took a shot for it and missed, I guess it was too far away. Today was very windy where I live.. In the spotsylvania/fredericksburg area a small buck came right under my stand after I put up a dripper a few yards away.
I couldn't hear it and I saw it running away after I did an estrous bleat.

A friend of mine killed a 15 pointer last week.
So far this season is a good one in Virginia.

Buy a range finder

What do you mean I guess it was to far away. Where was your range finder ?  This is why bow hunters get a bad rape, because I guessed the yardage instead of useing a range finder to know the exact yardage. Maybe Santa will bring you one for Christmas, all of us bow hunters should hope so. Good Luck in 2011.

I prefer late evening hunting over morning, but that's due to my inability to withstand the cold. I like to get up my stand by 3:30 or so, and sit until dark. With the big mast crop that we've had this year, hardwoods are a best bet. I've also noticed that deer will start cleaning up acorns as far away from human activity and houses as possible, and then later on, they will get braver and move closer to houses and such(where there are more acorns). Good Luck!
