Wildlife Management Areas

NOTICE: Due to the continuing dry conditions, open fires are prohibited on all DGIF WMAs and facilities west of the Blue Ridge until further notice.  Hunters are urged to be extremely careful with all flammable objects including cigarettes and matches.

The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries maintains 41 management areas totaling more than 203,000 acres for the benefit of all citizens for a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities. Many management areas 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. We encourage the public to utilize our land and enjoy the bountiful natural resources found on each area.
