Game Bird Hunting

Welcome to 2021-22 Virginia Game Bird

What's New

  • The bag limit for Canada geese in the Southern James Bay Population Zone (SJBP) has been reduced from 5 to 3 during the January 15-February 15 time period. Therefore, the bag limit for the entire season (November 17-28 and December 18-February 15) is now 3 per day. This change is being made in response to the continued low population level of Atlantic Population Canada geese and potential future changes in the SJBP goose zone.
  • The bag limit on king rails has been reduced to 1 per day. The previous limits for clapper/king rails was 15 per day counted in combination. This change will still allow the bag limit for clapper/king rails to be a total of 15 birds daily, but only 1 of the 15 birds may be a king rail.
