Thanks for including women in the thread title!
You are correct about hurting OA BUT the 3 day lease portion of the bill has been stricken from the proposal according to a good sourceSounds like someone from Outdoor Access ticked off someone in the VA Legislation. OA is based in VA and a LOT of their land is in VA and this bill would basically put them out of business in VA.
Lease less than 3 days??? All guides have to do is "lease" or "sublease" land longer than 3 days to hunters and they are good!
Just look at how Tombstone Creek in Missouri does it. Pay to hunt, nothing else involved.
If butthurt hunters support this, I’m ashamed.Live on va line hunted va and nc all my life. First i have heard of that. But wouldnt be supprised if wouldnt be some local support for it. The pay to hunt or hunting lodges or hunting guides ever what you want to call it dosent benefit locals that hunt. When the pay to hunt moves in land rent for hunting goes up. Saw it double here in a few years when they started here.
Ah my home area that would be a treat for sure most people don't know backwoods people till been there and toss in few counties on line in west va and ky and would be perfectVA is goin crazy
Well the people from up north that moved to VA are going crazy
I’d like for some of these politicians in NOVA to visit and campaign in Dickenson, Russell, and Buchanan counties in the VA coalfields
My great uncle was a mountain man in western NC. I LOVED going to his house growing up and just listening to his stories about hunting and roaming the woods. Never got to hunt with him before he passed but I sure would love to have been able to.Some of us would... “I know a guy”
And I hunt with a good friend who is an old mountain hillbilly.... not sure the song “a country boy can survive” was phrased correctly ... should’ve been a “Hillbilly can survive”
I’d believe you having worked in Pike County, Hazard, Mingo County, Logan and the like. It’s a whole ‘bother world up there lol. Nice people once they realize you aren’t with the government and are a harmless, country boy outsider from NC just workingI could tell tales but no one would believe me.
