Hunt Territory

Foxhunting in Central Virginia

Our hunt territory is located in central Virginia and is renowned for its rolling hills, established woods, green pastures, and stunning views. The region also features some challenging terrain, with steep hillsides, and traps in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Jumps include coops, telephone poles, natural log panels, and post-and-rail fences.

Keswick is a small town located in Albemarle County, just outside Charlottesville, Virginia. It has a population of just over 1,000 people. The town is located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and is known for its beautiful scenery and outdoor recreation opportunities. There are several parks and hiking trails in the area, and the town is also home to a number of historical sites.

We are so grateful to our landowners who allow us to hunt on their property. They play a vital role in our hunt, and without their hospitality we would be unable to enjoy the sport.
