Places to Hunt in the U.S.

There is a new resource on the VSSA web site that allows site visitors to search for public hunting property anywhere in the country. You can use it to search for a specific area or to view information about different locations in a state. The list is editable as well as interactive. If you find any incorrect, out-of-date or missing information, you can update it. All you have to do is:

  • Click an area’s name or activities to view its details.
  • Filter or sort the information by clicking any of the column headings. You can apply multiple filters by first filtering one column – such as state – and then filtering another column.
  • To find all areas in Virginia, for instance, click on the “state” header then hit “filter this field.” Next, place “VA” in the “state that contains” box.
  • Resize a column by clicking-and-dragging the edge of the column heading. Alternatively, you can use the scrollbar at the bottom of the table to view obscured columns.
  • Click the page number at the bottom of the list to jump to another page.
  • Click any cell to update its data.
  • Click the “add row” button to add an area missing from the table.

The information is syndicated and is available on a number of web sites. Any changes made on the VSSA web site will automatically update the list wherever it is displayed across the Web.

The table is provided by the folks who run the web site "Opposing Views." Opposing Views is a web site that provides debate on topics like guns, politics, society, health, money, and religion. According to the Opposing Views web site:

The hundreds of known and credible experts, opinion leaders and advocate groups include: the Obama Campaign, the McCain campaign, the National Rifle Association (NRA), People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), The Sierra Club and Amnesty International, as well as individuals who are authorities on issues of current consumer interest. Collectively, these partner organizations already have been cited as authorities on their topics.
