To OP:
I hope you find some good spots. I'll be following this thread to see. I have the same questions. I hope to find good hunting within an hour drive or so when I finally move. Is bow the best way to go?
I'd also like to go bear hunting further west in VA. But for everyday upland game hunting I would just be happy with something easy and nearby. There are plenty of back roads and _way_ too many deer, so I imagine you'll find something. Best of luck and happy hunting!

If you still have interest in WMA's:

It sounds like there might be more than you figured - if you're willing to drive a little.

I am new to the eastern areas of the US as well as to Virginia. I appreciate all of the replies and will exercise asking farmers for permission to bow hunt their land. Again, thanks!

You should definitely check out an organization that goes by the interesting name of Suburban Whitetail Management of Northern Virginia (Suburban Whitetail Management of Northern Virginia - SWMNV). Members of this group are all experienced bowhunters and not, contrary to what some people think, a bunch of yahoos who stepped out of the film "Deliverance" -- they include law enforcement officers, teachers, businessmen, etc.

SWMNV works with homeowners, residents' associations, and others who contact it for dealing with problem deer, and conducts bowhunting from portable tree stands on those properties to which it has been invited. That includes suburban neighborhoods as well as more rual countryside. SWMNV members charge no fees for their services, and I believe they must pass qualifying tests for marksmanship.
