Antlerless white-tailed deer
SOUTH CHARLESTON, West Virginia – Applications for the 2014 Antlerless Deer Season are available at West Virginia Division of Natural Resources (DNR) district offices and the DNR Elkins and South Charleston offices. These applications also may be downloaded from the DNR’s Web page at www.wvdnr.gov
“These limited permit areas provide antlerless deer hunting opportunities in counties or areas of the state where wildlife biologists have determined that limited numbers of antlerless deer permits are necessary to meet management objectives,” said Curtis I. Taylor, Chief of the DNR Wildlife Resources Section.
Eleven wildlife management areas (WMAs) (Beaver Dam, Big Ugly, Blackwater, Calvin Price State Forest, Elk River, Greenbrier State Forest, Kumbrabow State Forest, Little Canaan, Little River, Potomac and Wallback) and eight counties or portions thereof (Boone, Clay, Fayette, Mercer, Nicholas, Pendleton, Pocahontas and Raleigh) will have a limited number of Class N licenses for resident and Class NN licenses for nonresident antlerless deer hunting Oct. 23-25 on private land only, and Nov. 24 through Dec. 6, Dec. 18-20 and Dec. 29-31 on private and public land. Applications must be received by the DNR before the close of business Aug. 15, 2014.
