Casanova Hunt’s season is from September to mid-March. The early morning hunting done in September is known as cub hunting. Formal hunting season for Casanova Hunt traditionally begins around the third week of October. Regular hunting days are Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Visitors are always welcome to hunt with permission of the Masters.

In the off season our Huntsman & Staff are joined by Hunt Members as they to walk hounds, on foot, on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays. Friends and members of the community often join in and are always welcome.

Added to regular hunting schedule are other activities sponsored by the Hunt: a Spring Hunter Pace Event in February, our Hunt Ball and Silent Auction in March, Evening Trail Rides in July the Foxhunting Camp for Beginners in August a Fun Fall Hunter Pace Event in October and our annual Christmas Bazaar.The Hunt country is located in central, eastern and southern parts of Fauquier County, southeast Culpeper County, northeast Orange County, northeast Spotsylvania County and west Stafford County. The many horse, beef and dairy farms in our hunting territory have rolling pastures and grasslands. These are enhanced by some heavily wooded sections.

Our local farming community and the habitat provided by the farmers is a critical part of this traditional sport. The landowner remains the backbone of the organization, and our members recognize and appreciate the privilege of being permitted to ride over their land. Casanova Hunt is proud to be part of Virginia’s sporting tradition, a good neighbor, and source of pleasure for members, friends and landowners.
