With The Appalachian Mountains on her western border and the mighty North Atlantic at her coast, paired with all the hills, fields, streams, and ponds in between, Virginia gives our service members ample opportunities for fun year-round!
From the mountains to the coast you will find all species of game big and small anywhere you go in the state. The targeted species range from the Whitetail or “Virginia deer” to black bear, elk, coyote, fox, Turkey, and rabbit just to name a few.
If you’re into hunting fowl Virginia’s got you covered there too! With an amazing variety of birds to include puddle ducks and divers, geese, Swan, and even some upland birds like quail, woodcock, and dove there’s never a shortage of birds to hunt.
Boasted as one of the best places to catch the now coveted Snakehead, Virginia is home to a wide variety of great trophy fish species including, Striper, Red drum, Large and Small Mouth Bass, rainbow trout, and many more! The best part is we don’t just fish one way, you’ll find fly fishing, spin and bait fishing, and bow fishing are all ways we like to try to bring in the fish here in Va!
2021 was a big year full of firsts for Virginia. Virginia held its 1st Annual Fishing For The Fallen fishing tournament or (FFTF). FFTF is a large annual Fallen Outdoors Team Virginia fishing tournament held on Smith Mountain Lake in the southwestern part of the state. Along with FFTF Virginia also held its first-ever 3D archery tournament both being huge successes. When Va started 2021 there were two goals in mind, host our first annual banquet but more importantly, hit our goal of getting over 200 Members Outdoors in the State. Team Virginia, consisting of just over 40 staffers blew both of these goals out of the water. Not only did Virginia host a very successful 1st Annual Banquet but more importantly It has reached more than 250+ Service Members taken outdoors this year and the fall season is just getting started!
Our Big Annual Shows and Events are
• The Virginia Outdoor Sportsman’s Show
• Richmond Fishing Expo
• Fishing For The Fallen Fishing Tournament
