  • Hunting Skills Classes at Holiday Lake

        Virginia is fortunate to have habitat that supports a wide variety of wildlife and game.  Bay, river and tidal waters provide waterfowl hunting, mountain areas offer bears to harvest.  Fields, forests and fencerows support small game of all kinds, and the thriving population of deer and wild turkeys create opportunities state-wide to get out and find game.
