Permits for Limited Hunting Seasons Have Been Mailed


West Virginia hunters who were selected to participate in this year’s limited antlerless deer and bear firearms seasons should be receiving their permits any day now.

Paul Johansen, chief of the Division of Natural Resources Wildlife Resources Section, says the permits have been mailed. The permits will provide 2,220 antlerless deer hunters and 2.995 bear hunters an opportunity to help wildlife biologists meet management objectives in designated areas of the state.

Hunters also can see if they were selected for a permit by logging on to their account at . Johansen said applicants can click on “Enter Lottery” on their home screen, and those who were selected will see the word “picked” in the box beside that respective hunt.
