Pen-raised game birds may be taken on licensed shooting preserves from September 1 through April 30. There are a number of shooting preserves in Virginia authorized through permits by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. A state resident hunting pen-raised game birds on a licensed shooting preserve is required to have either a state or county resident hunting license. A nonresident is required to have a state nonresident license or a special nonresident shooting preserve license which is valid only within the boundaries of a licensed shooting preserve.
