Public Hunting Quota Hunts

2021-2022 Quota Hunts

Note to Quota Hunt Applicants

Because safety of the public and Department staffs takes precedence over the quota hunt opportunities listed on the following pages, the Department may cancel or modify operational procedures of some hunts to maintain consistency with the Governor’s guidelines for group activities and social distancing. The Department will strive to provide as much advanced notice of any changes to the details listed below. For the latest information on closures, cancellations, or modifications to Department facilities and programs, please visit https://www.virginiawildlife.gov/covid-19/.

General Information/Application

Quota hunts provide hunters opportunities to access public lands that otherwise may be closed to hunting. Hunters can participate in random drawings to hunt waterfowl, white-tailed deer, black bear, quail, rabbits and turkeys. To participate, hunters must apply pre-season and submit a non-refundable application fee. Applicants should be aware there is a risk and no guarantee that you will be selected for the hunt or hunt dates. Your application fee(s) will not be returned.

Your application fee(s) are used to process the application, conduct computer random hunter selections and post online hunter notifications. Application fees are $7.50 for each hunt.

A hunter may only apply online through the Department’s website at www.gooutdoorsvirginia.com. Successful applicants can find their hunt materials online by logging into their Quota Hunts landing page.
