Hunting Feral Hogs in Virginia
February 16, 2024 •iSportsman Staff
Fort Campbell consists of 105,000 acres in scenic Kentucky mostly made up of mixed forests and native prairies. With 46% of the fort covered by woodlands, and approximately 13,000 acres of grassland, Fort Campbell is home to a mixture of native species and offers many outdoor recreation opportunities. In the beginning of February, Fort Campbell sets resources aside to provide local youths, veterans, and active-duty military service members with the opportunity to embark on a waterfowl hunting venture.
During this time, youth hunters between the ages of 9 to 16 can harvest coots, gallinules, moorhens, ducks, mergansers, and geese. Sixteen-year-old youth hunters must possess a valid Federal Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp to participate. All youth hunters must also be accompanied by an adult 21-years or older, up to three youths can be accompanied by a single adult but all members of the party must have their appropriate Tennessee or Kentucky State issued hunting licenses in addition to a Fort Campbell Permit.
Veterans and member of the Armed Forces on active duty, including members of the National Guard and Reserves, can also enjoy harvesting coots, gallinule, moorhens, ducks, mergansers, and geese.
After you finish hunting, you can kick back and relax just in time for the Super Bowl this Sunday too!
