...such a stupid law. I expected more from Virginia! On the bright side, gun season starts in a month and a half
Bow season started today so between now and the middle of November I can only carry in the burbs.
Can you carry a bow?
If so, I would recommend this one...
I'll probably eventually score a compound bow, but for now I can look forward to rifle season so I can start hunting with my .460 Rowland pistol
Can't wait to be sitting in a hardwood bottom when first light starts to come through the trees, with only a pistol. Or watching a road bed or a field with my 30.06!
I've gotta find a place to hunt here in VA...After hunting in SC my whole life I still have not been out in VA yet.
you gonna bring your BBQ barrel to the pig pickin'? i'd like to see it...

"No matter how much contempt you have for the media in all this, you don't have enough"
18.2-308 says if you have a CHP you can carry while hunting. That's the way I interpret it anyway.
"6. Any person actually engaged in lawful hunting, as authorized by the Board of Game and Inland Fisheries, under inclement weather conditions necessitating temporary protection of his firearm from those conditions, provided that possession of a handgun while engaged in lawful hunting shall not be construed as hunting with a handgun if the person hunting is carrying a valid concealed handgun permit; "
Looks like the VADGIF agrees.
"It is unlawful to have a firearm in possession except that a muzzleloading firearm, as defined in the muzzleloader deer seasons section, may also be in possession when and where there is an overlap with a muzzleloading deer season where deer hunting with a rifle or muzzleloading firearm is permitted. **(See exception for valid concealed handgun permit holders)." - http://www.dgif.virginia.gov/hunting...tions/deer.asp
**"Valid Concealed Handgun Permit Holders May:
Nothing in any Department regulation shall prohibit the possession and transport of a concealed handgun when the individual possesses a valid concealed weapon permit as defined in the Code of Virginia. The granting of a concealed handgun permit shall not thereby authorize the possession of any handgun or other weapon on property or in places where such possession is otherwise prohibited by law or is prohibited by the owner of private property. Furthermore, the possession of a concealed handgun permit does not authorize the use of the concealed handgun for hunting." - http://www.dgif.virginia.gov/hunting....asp#legal-use
