Hunting & Wingshooting

Challenge yourself in tracking wild game across Primland’s expansive landscape with our hunting and wingshooting adventures. Participate in guided or semi-guided adventures when deer, turkey, pheasant, quail or chukar are in season. Group and individual excursions are available and provide an opportunity to explore the many facets of the Primland landscape. Licenses are required to participate and can be purchased on-site.

Deer Hunting

This is true fair chase hunting at its best, with no guarantee of success. Our deer hunting is primarily from elevated blinds and stands, although guests may also choose to hunt from the ground by stalking or “still” hunting. Hunters are transported to their hunting areas and blinds by Primland guides who also assist in tracking and recovering downed game. All guests participating in Virginia deer hunting and guided deer hunts must obtain proper Virginia hunting licenses, which are sold on site. Complete processing of meat is available. For those who either can’t or choose not to transport game, a charitable organization is available locally that will accept, process and distribute venison to local charities. This is a semi-guided activity offered during a state-regulated hunting season. The season generally runs from October through early December, but is subject to change by The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. Advance reservation and a deposit are required. Primland practices quality deer management and there is a penalty fee for bucks harvested that do not meet minimum harvest standards.

Call 866.960.7746 for season dates and availability. All Virginia game regulations apply. Season dates set by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. Licensing is additional and available onsite or at www.dgif.virginia.gov.

Spring Gobbler

Wild turkey hunting at Primland is a challenging and exhilarating experience. This is true fair chase hunting at its best, with no guarantee of success. The gobblers typically make their homes in the most rugged areas of the Blue Ridge, so it’s important to accurately gauge your ability to hike physically taxing terrain while engaging in spring turkey hunting. As turkeys see color and are sensitive to any movement, full camouflage including face and gun is a prerequisite before you can begin tracking Primland’s most elusive bird. Our Virginia turkey hunting is a guided activity offered only during a state-regulated hunting season, which generally runs from mid-April through mid-May. This is subject to change by The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. We are members of the National Wild Turkey Federation.
