    So as I have mentioned, I got started hunting in Boyle County, but have now moved to Virginia. I’ve stuck around this forum because I’ve learned so much, and I like y’all. Plus, where I hunt isn’t that different from Kentucky. Except for this:

    1. VA bear firearm season is Nov 23-Jan 2
    2. Whitetail modern gun is Nov 14-28.
    3. VA special Thanksgiving Fall turkey season: Nov 25 and 26.

    AND, Virginia sells a combined Sportsmans license that includes all three.

    AND Virginia will let me hunt turkey with a rifle.

    So tomorrow—plus Thanksgiving morning if I decide I don’t care if my wife’s affection anymore—I can sit in one stand with one gun and shoot the makings of burgoo. And we’ve got a stand with sign and pictures of all three.

    Only restriction is buck only, with a 4 points on one side minimum APR.

    Over / under is even money: 0.5 animals killed.

    Heck, I think squirrel might be open, too.

    Just thought you might like to know.

    I went to school in Virginia and really enjoyed hunting there. Unlike my home state access to private land was no problem, the seasons were long and bag limits liberal. I loved the long ML deer season. The only problem was no hunting on Sunday. I don't know if that's still the case.

    Hunting on Sunday: no problem. And you're right, I have more properties to hunt than I have days to hunt them.

    Where in VA are you? I hunt the NC/VA border on the Caswell/Pittsylvania county line. Just starting to see bears down our way but lots of em 10 miles North.

    Is that all also open to out of state guys? I know some guys who hunt Virginia and have seen bear. Might be a good trip to make.
