    Hunting Clubs in Virginia?

    Anyone know of any hunting clubs in the southern half of Virginia? I've looked all over the net but am not having any luck.
    Do whatever floats your boat, but don't dare to try and sink mine.

    What type of hunting club are you looking for. Most of the deer hunting clubs are private and wouldn't show up on the internet. Your best bet for one of these is to find a friend who is a member and ask if you can hunt as his guest. The hunt clubs exists because most of the land in southern and eastern Virginia is private, and the clubs lease the hunting rights. There are some public lands in my area, notably, the Powhatan and Amelia Wildlife Management areas. Also, most of the clubs will have a requirement that you have hunted a few times as a guest, before they will allow you to be nominated as a member, and the prospective member list is usually very long. Try going to the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries website, Google VDGIF and it will come up. They have a section on public hunting areas.

    Well, it also depends on whether you mean the southeastern or southwestern half. Completely different hunting...in the eastern part of the state we can run hounds for deer, but for the most part can only use shotguns. In the western part of the state, rifles are allowed...but no hounds. The club I belong to is by far the best I've heard of...the dues are only $80 a year, that's because we don't lease any of the ~7500 acres we hunt...it is all done by permission from the local farmers. HOWEVER, you must reside within 10 miles of the club house, hunt for one season at least 3 times as a guest then get nominated for a membership.

    Having lived, hunted, and belonged to clubs in both areas, that about covers it.


    If you live in the SW and you see this tonight check out:

    If the SE, check out:

    Also, check out gun stores in your area. Some are very pro-hunting and a gold mind of info on local clubs, etc.
