Jas. R. Goodloe Hunt Club’s roots go back to 1870. When the Club celebrated its 100th anniversary in 1970, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported it was likely the oldest hunt club in America in continuous operation. Located sixty miles west of Richmond and ten miles north of Appomattox, our 4,000 acres are close to the intersection of Routes 24 and 60 in Buckingham County, Virginia. Membership has included Civil War veterans with their cherished foxhounds, to bird hunters with stylish pointers and setters, to today’s bow hunting, black powder, rifle, and shotgun enthusiasts. Our 4,000 acres of leased and owned land contains pines, hardwoods, and fields to hunt deer, turkey, bear, coyote, squirrel, rabbit, quail, woodcock, and dove. Several tracts are over 1,000 acres, it’s rare when one of our twenty-four members or guests cannot find a few hundred acres of pure solitude. One of our tracts is even named “Solitude”.
Our large clubhouse features twelve bedrooms and comfortably sleeps 36 or more.
We have a full kitchen (two refrigerators plus a large freezer), front and rear decks for BBQ or just sitting and maybe even telling a few tall tales. One bathroom with two showers, two toilets, and a washer/dryer. Sorry no co-ed facilities. All of this is very convenient after butchering your trophy of the day in our cleaning shed.
Our owned property hosts a 100 acre registered Game Preserve where members can bring their own quail or pheasants and shoot seven days a week. Our 100 yard shooting range and archery shed are great for sighting in your favorite firearm or practicing that 35 yard bow shot.
Our clubhouse fields are annually planted to attract dove, turkey, and deer and can be used twelve months a year.
We have two planned dog hunts each fall in deer season, an annual hunt and a father/son event… but impromptu dog hunts and man-drives occur frequently.
We have ten ”club stands” for new members, three tri-pods and seven ladders all set up on well-marked trails. As a participant in the Virginia Department of Game’s Deer Management Assistance Program (DMAP), our members are able to harvest antlerless deer all season in an effort to promote a healthy population.
But, best of all, on those cool nights, is our six foot wide fireplace which heats the entire clubhouse (and heats up those tall tales even more).
For more information, or to schedule a visit, please contact David Kern, our President either by phone (804) 920-6654 or e-mail him at email@example.com. All this is available for annual dues of only $1,500.00 (due April 1st, but may be paid semi-annually or quarterly). Minimum age for membership is 21.
