The Story

Enjoy an unforgettable wingshooting experience at The Preserve at Crooked Run, an Orvis-endorsed hunting grounds in Roanoke, Virginia. The Preserve at Crooked Run offers a unique upland experience within the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Experience the thrill of hunting over seasoned gun dogs as you trek through varying terrain and managed quail habitat. From open grass fields to creeks and woodland, you will find yourself on your toes throughout your entire adventure. We offer unique packages that cater to all ages, abilities, and experience levels.

Before heading into the field, stop into our General Store for all your upland necessities, including Caesar Guerini and Fabarm gun rentals, ammunition, and apparel. Then mark out on your hunt for pheasant, quail, or chukar, which will be located masterfully by one of our setters, pointers, or spaniels. Beginners can enjoy wingshooting-oriented instruction from one of our certified shotgun instructors on our Orvis-designed 13-station sporting clays course and 5-stand/wobble trap.

Turn your hunt into a true memorable experience with an overnight package. Enjoy dinner in our Grand Lodge overlooking a five-acre trout-stocked pond. Sit around a campfire and reminisce about the shots you should have made and the harvests you were fortunate enough to put in the bag. We strive to make your experience here at The Preserve at Crooked Run one you will never forget.

The Preserve at Crooked Run offers private lodging with seven unique cabins, which can accommodate varying group sizes. The Grand Lodge can provide an intimate atmosphere for a small private group or transform into a reception space for a larger corporate gathering. We offer numerous catering options, which can be customized to best serve your group.

White Oak Cabin – Sleeps 4
Chestnut Cabin – Sleeps 3
Hickory Cabin – Sleeps 8
Sycamore Cabin – Sleeps 12
Poplar Cabin – Sleeps 12
Glamping Cabin – Sleeps 2
Magnolia Cabin – Sleeps 6

Full-day hunt rates include a 5-stand/wobble trap warm-up, guide, dogs, a 20-bird harvest limit, and lunch. Overnight accommodations include a private cabin per group, cocktail hour, appetizers, dinner, and breakfast prior to departure. Many upland essentials are available for purchase in the General Store, including gun rentals, ammunition, and apparel. Hunting gear should include light chaps or briar pants, upland leather boots, coat, or jacket. Wet weather usually moves through quickly, so having waterproof outerwear on hand is a good idea. Our General Store can usually accommodate your last-minute needs or forgotten items. If it has been raining, comfortable muck-type boots are recommended for field hunting. Bring your comfortable casual wear and a change of shoes for use around the lodge and cabins.

  • Over/Under Shotguns Available for Rent – $50/Hunter
  • 20 & 28 Gauge are recommended but not mandatory (we prefer no auto loading or pump guns in the field)
  • Light to heavy footwear, light raincoat, hunting, or heavy twill pants, vest, cap, glasses, gloves if desired.
  • We require that hunters wear eye and ear protection when in the field and shooting.

Elevation for our hunting fields varies between 1,100 and 1,300 feet with views of 360-degree views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Our hunting grounds offer varying terrain and vegetation, with native warm season grasses matched with purposefully planted food plots and strategically unmanaged escape cover. While most of the preserve features moderate hills during the hunt, we are happy to accommodate guests who prefer flat terrain or ride a golf cart during their hunt. Our climate varies throughout the hunting season, so we encourage guests to dress in layers and have wet-weather gear on hand.
