Welcome Fort A.P. Hill iSportsman 

  Follow @Fish_n_Wildlife

Areas available to hunting are finalized by 4pm the day before.  Please check after 4pm to get the following day's open areas.

We developed a NEW iSportsman Startup Guide to help you through the registration process.  

To access HUNTING PERMITS all hunters have to complete the "New Hunter Orientation" video located under the "My Safety Briefs" tab in the top blue menu bar of your iSportsman Account.  This is a one time requirement but will be available to review later. 

All hunters wishing to hunt the CA areas must complete the "CA Safety Brief" video before CA permits will be available under "Acquire Permits".  This is an Annual requirement.

Do not call the Range Control Fire Desk with questions concerning the iSportsman service.

Do not arrive at the FAPH entrance prior to 0430. No parking or waiting is allowed on FAPH property.

Reservation change: To reserve a hunting spot for Monday, reservations are to be made Sunday evening at 7:00pm.

Reservations are only place holders for the area for the next day. You MUST STILL CHECK IN to the area the morning of your hunt to fill that spot. Having a reservation does NOT automatically check you out to the area you have reserved.
