Re: Virginia Deer Hunt
Not sure if I have anything that will help all that much but I hunted quite a few years in the early 90's in north western VA in Highland Co.(Red Oak Ranch) and Bath Co.(Fort Lewis Lodge). That is great country, really neat high pasture on the mountain tops at 3000 - 4000 feet, and was great hunting at that time. From my understanding though, that whole area suffered a big die off in the mid 2000ís and I donít know itís status now, so if you find outfitters in that country youíd be well served to explore the recent kill stats for those counties before booking anything.
I donít think anybody is hunting Red Oak anymore since Randy Butler (Virginia Guide Service) gave up his lease the other year; when I hunted it the owner Mac ran the hunt. Fort Lewis lodge was really nice, itís a full time 4 star Bed and Breakfast. They never did advertise hunting so Iím not sure if they are still offering hunts, but they do have a web site for the B&B with contact info.
