Undoubtedly, one of THE MOST beautiful and idyllic places on this Earth!



Told that to a guy in sand box: he said you want our country: I wish you could see the valley.


I have been blessed to have spent my life hunting and fishing the Shenandoah Valley and the neighboring mountains. I live in the foothills 10 miles east of Shenandoah National Park. It is amazing country with rich history and awesome people. Not to mention great hunting and fishing.



I was the first one to get a chance to leave and took it. :)

Sheer curiosity. What kind of birds can you hunt in the Shenandoah Valley?

Some ducks. Lot's of geese. Good doves in September. A few woodcock on the eastern side of the mountains. There were quail years ago but they are pretty much gone. Some grouse in the mountains but same story. Pretty scarce now too. There was a pheasant season back in the 60's and early 70's but I have never seen one. Never looked for them to be honest. We have lot's of deer and bears though. I would not consider the valley as a bird hunting destination. Much better places elsewhere. Others may differ but I am near the lower part of the valley close to Front Royal.

Gun Clubs are great reloading hulls. Keep 'em!

I used to run the road between Winchester and Front Royal all the time.

I live in Jacksonville: retired from the Navy. I have to get to Punta Gorda someday: I have driven US 17 from Pairs Virginia to Orlando, only part I'm missing is Orlando to Punta Gorda.

Keep the gunclubs, even if you hunt salt water, they are so plentiful it's hard to walk out the door without stepping on one & unless you let the hulls roll around in salt water in the bottom of the boat, they last pretty good if you clean 'em up after exposure. I think they load better than AA's & are great for high land hunting as well.
OH yea Virginia! I was born in Virginia as was Mom, Pop's family was from S.C. Dad once told me how he killed 13 Canada geese in the Sheriff's cornfield near the Chesapeake Bay. It has always amazed me that Pop lived long enough to die of old age without serving time for a wildlife violation!

Hey! I shot Bermont twice when I was down in Punta Gorda in January 2020, awesome course and the Mgr, “Jake” is good folk! (Alas, I was supposed to be there ALL THIS MONTH but the ‘rona and an adult son only back to work a month now after a virus layoff 11 months ago has me staying close to home :twisted:

Mebbe next year. :roll:
