Just got off the phone with a Ranger at Piedmont. Hunts will be held, but you have to call for applications. As of now and to the foreseeable future the campground is closed due to Covid. Check in will be drive through, with hunter staying in their vehicle. There is limited primitive camping in the ONF, but that could change.

I am still going, despite this.

I understand they have to be back by noon 26th to be considered.

Going to be crowded the 1st two hunts, since the lady I talked to said both hunts are full.

Several of my friends did not draw the primitive weapon hunt. I guess everyone is putting in now.
Especially since modern scoped inline's are allowed. Hardly anyone hunted it it when it was old school muzzle loaders

Buddy and I got the ML hunt. I think I read every thread on Piedmont NWR, no one shared any info on places to hunt. LOL

Appears most people concentrate on the Northern half of the property and talk about leaving camp at 4 AM to secure a parking spot where they have placed their stand.

This will be our first trip to the NWR and are hoping for a good experience.
