Turkey hunting kicks off in Virginia

AUGUSTA COUNTY, Va. (WHSV) — Now through November 8, people can hunt turkeys using a bow and arrow, except in areas where there is a closed firearm season on turkey.

Any wild turkey that is killed in the fall must be checked at a game station, online or by phone.

Hunters in Augusta, Rockingham and Page Counties can begin using a firearm on October 19.

Violating these rules can result in charges. For more information, click here.
