The HSUS has been trying to have our Fox Preserves here in Virginia shut down by using untruths to play on the sympathies of those who do not know what Field Trialing is about. We do not slaughter fox and own trained killer hounds. We do alot of good for our communities by hosting alot of benefit hunts to help anyone in need. We bring much needed revenue to our state. Fox Preserves are monitored by the DGIF and all fox are vaccinated, wormed and fed. Enclosures are well maintained and many natural dens and man made escape houses are in the enclosure. Enclosures are 300 to 1000 acres in size, not small cages as many are led to believe.

We feel the HSUS has unfairly painted a very negative light on the Preserves in VA and we the undersigned would like to request that consideration of their past untruths be brought to light in their next round of attacks. Please vote to keep our Preserves open and preserve our rights.

We here in Virginia are proud of our hunting heritage and are willing to stand and fight for that right.



  • Kenny Butzner This was once a great state, for a long time; but now with an influx of those from MD NY and PA we get a democratic state and this is just the beginning, what is next? If your originally from here your imagination WONT let you down, sign this, NOW!!!!!!

  • Chase Sinnett I've been fox hunting since before I could walk, I'd hate to see this wonderful sport be taken away from us.
