Default Looking for a Mentor (VIRGINIA)

Hello all...

My name is Ron... I am 27 years old and live in Fredericksburg, VA...

I am "NEW" to hunting... I have been out to Church Creek, MD twice (1/2010 & 12/2010) where I was invited to my cousins Friend's farm...

I really enjoyed the experience and am looking to really getting into the sport...

I went out and purchased my first rifle (Remington Model 700 ADL .30-06)...

I am hopeing to find someone that is willing to take me under their wing and teach me the ropes and the in's and out's to Hunting in VA... I don't have any land so I would need to learn about State Land Hunting (what not to do that would piss someone off) or if you know of anyone who invites Hunters onto their Private Property...

Hope to hear from someone...

Default VA hunting

Hey Ron welcome to a sport that will last a life time. I live in Norfolk, VA. First thing is you should have got a 12 gauge shotgun because most county's in Virginia are shotgun only county's. There are some that allow rifle but just a few I know of. Get a hunting rules book from wherever you get your hunting license and do your reserch. I hunt mostley state land and military bases such as Fort AP Hill, and Fort Pickett. Read sights such as this, and many others about hunting and maybe join a hunting club. Start asking people you know, or work with about land to hunt on for next year. I often train new hunters by taking them squirrel hunting. Stalking squirrel will make you a much better deer hunter, and you still get the chance to see deer and learn land for next year.

Most of the counties are not shotgun only, at best it is split. A rifle will work just fine.
