Hi everyone. I moved to VA last year and am getting ready for some bowhunting on the nice public lands here.
I went to Phelps this morning to scout a spot for later this week. It was my first time there. I had been looking at the map and thought that I would like to try the upper pipeline area. When I pulled in there were about 5 trucks already there....doh! I went to another spot and hiked in. I found a nice little spot, cleared a shooting lane and will return on Wednesday. I didn't see any deer, but saw some nice scrapes and I heard some turkeys off in the distance.
Later, I went up to that part of the WMA that is detached from the rest (NW) past the boat launch area. I didn'y go in very far, but that looks really nice in there. I'll check it out another time.....has anyone else hunted that plot?
Also, since I'm new to Phelps, are there any pigs ever seen there? I've heard there are feral pigs around Culpeper, so I figured maybe there could be some at Phelps too.
