HUNTING Mecklenburg County has 17 designated Wildlife Management Areas, most with free access, established parking, maps and all are open to hunting. The fertile fields and forests are home to whitetail deer, black bear, turkey, geese, duck and other species. Local outfitters or the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries website are great resources for seasons, licensing and safety information. The Dick Cross Wildlife Management Area (a DGIF fee area) is nationally known for the annual field trials held here. Occoneechee State Park, located on Kerr Lake, is one of only two Virginia state parks with an archery range. Outfitters for every activity are here, such as Buggs Island Archery, the largest archery retailer in the entire region.
