I live just south of you in Kitty Hawk Nc. You need to find an area to hunt out in Franklin to the I 95 corridor. That area north from Richmond and South well into Nc by Raleigh hold nice bucks and good numbers of deer. Basically from Suffolk west . There are some nice farms in the Pungo area of Chesapeake but don't know .

Mecklenburg co. Is a big producer in and near you.

Are any of you guys familiar with the Dismal Swamp or The Cavalier WMA over my way?
Also what about hogs in Va? Is it open year round on them and can we bait them?

I'm hunting in Southern Maryland on public hunting grounds. Sorry, I don't know where the best hunting spots in Virginia.

I'm in Richmond. The best spots for hunting deer are on private land. You have to know someone who knows someone in order to get a sweet spot on private land to hunt, or just get lucky and ask a landowner.

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'm in Yorktown and hunt in a hunt club in Wakefield and have some private land in ivor and out in north Wakefield near dendron. You can also check the big woods in Sussex co. I used to hunt it with our club. There are plenty of deer there and many big bucks, just have to go find them. 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
