Applications available for antlerless deer hunts in limited permit areas

MORGANTOWN — The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources is now accepting applications to hunt in limited permit areas during the 2022 antlerless deer season. Applications for the lottery are available online at wvhunt.com and will be accepted until midnight on Aug. 12.

“These limited permit areas provide antlerless deer hunting opportunities in counties or areas of the state where wildlife biologists have determined that issuing limited numbers of antlerless deer permits will help meet management objectives,” said Chris Ryan, game management supervisor for the WVDNR.

Starting Sept. 1, all applicants can see whether they received a permit by logging into their account. Applicants who are selected will be notified by mail by the first week of October.

The following wildlife management areas and counties are open for this drawing:
• Beury WMA
• Camp Creek State Forest
• Greenbrier State Forest
• Hillcrest WMA
• National Forest and State Land (Nicholas County)
• National Forest Land (Pocahontas County)
• National Forest Land (Randolph County)
• National Forest and State Land (Webster County)
• Boone County
• Clay County (South Portion)
• Greenbrier County (North Portion)
• Kanawha County (North Portion)
• Nicholas County
• Raleigh County (East Portion)
• Webster County
A limited number of Class N stamps for resident hunters and Class NN stamps for nonresident hunters will be available. Successful applicants may hunt antlerless deer on private and public land on Oct. 20-23, Nov. 21 to Dec. 4, Dec. 8-11 and Dec. 28-31.

Hunters who want to enter as a group must know the other hunters’ DNR ID numbers to enter the lottery. Hunters also may call their local DNR district office for help with the application process.

For more information on antlerless deer season dates and bag limits, hunters should consult the 2022-23 Hunting and Trapping Regulations Summary available at wvdnr.gov/hunting-regulations.
