The Virginia Outdoors Foundation (VOF) makes every effort to ensure that the information presented on this site is accurate, reliable, and timely. However, we do not make any claim that such is 100 percent true 100 percent of the time, and therefore we cannot be held liable for the ultimate accuracy, reliability, or timeliness of the content found on this site.
Similarly, this site may reference specific commercial products, processes, or services by trade name, trademark, or manufacturer, but this does not constitute or imply any endorsement, recommendation, or favoring by VOF or the Commonwealth of Virginia.
This site contains links to external websites and pages containing information created and maintained by public and private organizations other than VOF, which alone determines which external websites are linked to. These links are offered to be helpful to our site visitors, but just because we link to another website does not mean we explicitly or implicitly endorse, recommend, or especially favor these entities.
Links to external websites and pages may be removed or replaced at the sole discretion of VOF at any time without notice.

Repeated violations may cause the author to be blocked from future commenting or from our social media channels.
