Muzzleloader deer hunt tradition aids Peninsula State Park

Virginia State Parks / CC

The start of the muzzleloader deer hunt comes the day after the regular firearms hunting season ends. Muzzleloader hunters, however, have been busy at Peninsula State Park where they’ve been allowed to hunt deer during the nine-day firearms season since 1992. The hunt is limited to designated areas of the park away from non-hunting park visitors. Park naturalist Kathleen Harris calls it a tradition that helps protect the park.

 

 

In addition to muzzleloaders, bow and arrow hunters are also allowed in other designated park areas during the regular firearms season.
