License Plate? Wait until you can't even see the car! Happened to us one Christmas up on the Tug. Too much snow to even go snowmobiling.

Ret_Eng,

My grandaughter's husband told me he passed the Virginia Hunter Safety Course on line. Can your grandson do that for a Virginia hunt, and is he too young?
Pretty much the same here I believe, AND you can get a license to hunt without having the hunter safety course ONE time, as long as you hunt with someone who IS licensed...Like a mentoring program! After that, you need to take the course in order to get your license.

Yep, I was up in MA on Sunday when the storm hit. Lots of accidents on Mass pke. Some (many) thought it was a good idea to pass traffic and ended up in the guardrail or slamming into others. I almost got hit twice by drivers trying to pass. idiots.

My son will be taking some leave from his Army duties right after Christmas. The plan for my son and grandson is to hunt with me in VA for 3-4 days in late December. We hope to get the new Bushnell Trophy 2-7X sighted in for my grandson during that time. He hasn't been through a hunters safety course yet--so he will be an observer only. My son had my grandson signed up for a course last year in KY but the Army had other plans. My son was sent to the US Army Recruiter school and got transferred to NY. Hopefully he can get to a safety course next year.
Your grand son doesn't need a license in Va. to hunt on his grand parents land so I think he's good to go.

from VA Game Dept. Resident or nonresident landowners, their spouses, their children and grandchildren and the spouses of such children and grandchildren, or the landowner’s parents, resident or nonresident, do not need a license to hunt, trap or fish (on inland waters) within the boundaries of their own lands.

I love the "white dirt" - it's a bit of a bother with shoveling and driving, but wow...

A small group of us were out snowshoeing in it yesterday. First snowshoe hike for my new dog, he of course loved it.



Hopefully it will be another long, cold, white winter here in the Northwest.

Did a lot of snowshoeing for Uncle Sam back in the day with full combat gear. I actually enjoyed cross country skiing the most when we were on somewhat flat ground. Trying to downhill ski with US Army "suicide skids" was not fun. The white intermediate length 6th ID (Arctic Light) snow skis (suicide skids) that we were issued were supposed to be good enough for downhill and cross country skiing. Of course--nothing built for several applications can do any of them very well.

Unfortunately we will be hunting on a buddy's farm. My buddy took a nice 10 pointer on his farm about three weeks back and I got an 8 pointer two weeks back. Hopefully my grandson can finish an online NY hunters safety course this month before heading down to Virginia.
