Virginia legislation for outdoors and firearms update

It is that time of year when our state legislators are busy representing us in Richmond. Delegate Ransone and Senator Stuart have both put forth bills to be heard. In addition, there are other bills that sportsmen and women should be aware of. Game and Inland Fisheries has a link on their website for the related bills at http://www.dgif.virginia.gov/legislation/.

What is on your list for this year in Virginia’s Outdoors?

Each year on the last day of the year I take time to reflect on how the year went, what I did well and what I wish I had done better. In all that deep thought, usually done from a spot next to a tree awaiting a deer, I think about what I missed out on fishing or hunting around the state and then I end up making a list of things I really want to try to do during the upcoming year.

Outdoors Report - December 4, 2013

Mark and Missy Fike

Overview
Fishing has dwindled to the few hardy souls that don’t hunt. That is not to say that fishing is not good, or they cannot be caught. Lack of interest is the big issue. Good fishing exists for winter catfish; Lake Anna for striper and bass; chain pickerel in local swamps and creeks and, of course, striper. We anticipate stopping the report in a week or so until March, when fishing picks up again. However, please do send photos of fish or game to This email address is being protected from spambots.
