Following a public scoping period where ideas on changes to wildlife regulations were reviewed, the Virginia Board of Wildlife Resources proposed amendments to Virginia’s regulations governing hunting, trapping, and terrestrial wildlife. A public comment period is currently ongoing through May 10, 2021.
After hearing public comment on the proposed amendments at the May 27, 2021 Board meeting, the Board anticipates adopting final regulation amendments that will be effective on August 1, 2021 for the 2021–2022 hunting and trapping seasons. You can read the proposed changes and provide feedback here.
