I am military of 12 years, working at Pentagon, living in Loudon county by the Dulles. Any recomendations on where to hunt? Plenty of deer around here but propery is scarce. I have signed up for the Loudon county population control drawings, held in Nov, I also went out and Scouted in the GWNF for a day. The NF was pretty thin as far as deer sign, and it was quite a drive. Anybody know of any farm land or anything closer for mature, experianced hunter? Could bargan with beverages, work around the farm, or old military aviator talk, not really looking to pay cash to hunt though. Any recomendations?
I have a 7mm, 12 gauge, and bow, but prefer to use in that order since practice time is few and far between. If I get selected for the population control hunt (shotgun) - i will put some range time into the shotgun.
I enjoy getting outdoors and would love to include my 8 yr old daughter, would love to get at least one deer in the freezer, not to concerned with size or spread.
Let me know if you have any suggestions! thanks for the time.
