Sorry! I live in NoVa. Plenty of deer here in loudoun County! In fact, there is no daily bag limit. All my hunting is done on private land.

Good luck!

The public WMA's (Chickahominy, Powhatan, Amelia, CF Phelps, etc..) are not very good and are way, way, WAY, over hunted. The state forests might be a better option.

I have seen a few post on Craigslist about a club doing hunts out there and they need standers. Might be worth doing to check it out and to meet some locals. Good luck

Thanks for the info gents, do either of you know much about the urban archery season from Jan-March? Im overseas right now looking at being back early Jan so thats the only bet I have for this year. Va Wildlife website didnt have too much on it.

urban archery? All i know is that you can bow hunt only and take doe only. And its only available in certain countys. Most likely you will have to have private land to do this on. There is plenty of land in suffolk and plenty of farmers out there that im sure will allow you to take out some more does, especially with a bow. Good luck

Here in NoVa there is the Northern Virginia Urban Archers Club which has a deal going with the Fish and Game folks? Essentially, once you pass their qualifications you can hunt antlerless deer all year long, but only on private lands. However, the private lands belong to folks who want the deer removed. Check it out, it might work for you.

Besides that Loudoun, Fairfax and maybe a few other northern Virginia counties allow the taking of antlerless deer from January to the end of March; by any means. Check the Fish and Game website.

Ah, Loudoun Co, home of my ancestors Solomon Vanvacter and Charity Austin and Smyth Co, home of my g-g-gf Jacob Williams. And Bedford Co, home of my wife, Mary Saunders. All gone to Missouri. Sorry, I get carried away.
