Urban Archery Season – Town Property Hunting program

The Town of Altavista has allowed hunting on certain town-owned property during the Urban Archery Season for the past several years. The Town is seeking applicants for a limited number of hunting permits for the approved town owned properties; which include Dead end of 11th Street; Franklin Avenue (corner of 10th Street); and property adjacent to the Waste Water Treatment Plan on Lane Access Road. Virginia’s Urban Archery Season begins on September 7 and runs until October 4, 2019 then begins again on January 5, 2020 and runs through March 29, 2020.

Interested individuals can pick up an application from Town Hall (510 Seventh Street) during normal business hours. The Town intends to begin issuing the limited number of permits on August 19th.
