The Virginia Bear Hunters Association is dedicated to the preservation of hunting bears with sporting dogs and to sound wildlife management principles. In order to preserve hunting bears with sporting dogs we have several goals that we achieve.
We must continue clean, ethical hunting standards and practice fair chase and sportsman-like hunting. We must improve our relationship with the private landowner and eliminate trespassing issues. We must continue to build on our working relationship with the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, the National Forest Service and the Virginia legislature.
We must project a positive image of the bear-hound hunter in Virginia by working with state and local charitable organizations. We must maintain and build on our alliances with other hunting groups and organizations. We must continue to involve young hunters in bear hunting with sporting dogs to insure the future of our sport.
