Course Outline

During all firearms deer seasons, Virginia regulations require hunters to wear a blaze orange hat or clothing or display blaze orange material.

The legal methods you may use while hunting depend on the game species, the type of firearm or archery tackle, and the location. Always follow all equipment requirements and restrictions.

After you kill a big game animal, you must validate the tag on your hunting license before you move the animal. You also must check in the animal as soon as it is transported in a vehicle or at the end of the day’s legal hunting hours. The method for checking in the animal depends on the species and the time of year.

Before you go hunting, make sure you know Virginia’s hunting regulations regarding hunting on private property, baiting and feeding wildlife, restrictions on shooting, and ATV operation.
