West Virginia DNR Accepting Applicants for Special Deer Hunt


The state Division of Natural Resources is accepting applications for a controlled deer hunt this fall in southern West Virginia.

The hunt is scheduled for Nov. 3, 4 and 5 at Pipestem Resort State Park.

Applications must be submitted at and must be completed by Aug. 15. Applicants must designate whether they want to hunt with a firearm or bow.

The DNR says 40 hunters will be selected at random for each day of the hunt and will be notified after Oct. 1. Hunters must hunt from designated trees to which they are assigned and must provide their own climbing tree stand.

The hunt will be the second at the resort. One also was held there last November to reduce the high deer population.
