The Virginia Sportsmen's Foundation provides outdoor education to first-time hunters, hosts an annual wild game chili cook-off and holds hunting and fishing outings with veterans and law enforcement officers.
The General Assembly Wild Game Chili Cook-Off is an annual non-partisan, charitable event held in Richmond while the state legislature is in session. This FREE event for anyone who roams the grounds of Capitol Square – legislators, staff, lobbyists, and friends – and features a variety of wild game, tame meat, and vegetarian chili recipes from familiar faces around Virginia. Recipes from recent years have included wild boar, bison, venison, kangaroo, bear, moose, dove, goose, pheasant, caribou and elk.
The Virginia Sportsmen's Foundation is partnering with 001 Outdoor Advenutures to host a pheasant hunt with Wounded Warriors and veterans on a private preserve in the Esmont area of Albemarle County. We plan on having a group of 13 special guests who will each be accompanied by their sponsor and a guide for a 300-bird European-style circle shoot.
