Public Hunting Lands

Wildlife Management Areas

The Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources maintains 44 WMAs totaling more than 216,000 acres for the benefit of all citizens for a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities. Many WMAs are open for some type of hunting. These lands are purchased and maintained with hunting, fishing, and trapping license fees and with Wildlife Restoration funds, derived from the sale of hunting-related equipment. We encourage the public to utilize all lands and enjoy the bountiful natural resources found there.
