From West Virginia Division of Natural Resources
-- Applications for the 2008 Antlerless Deer Season are now available at all West Virginia hunting and fishing license agents, Division of Natural Resources (DNR) District Offices, Elkins Operations Center and Charleston Headquarters, according to Curtis I. Taylor, chief of the DNR's Wildlife Resources Section.
These applications may also be downloaded from the DNR's webpage at www.wvdnr.gov. These limited permit areas provide antlerless deer hunting opportunities in areas of the state where wildlife biologists have determined that limited numbers of antlerless deer permits are necessary to meet management objectives.
Six Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) will have a limited number of Class N licenses for resident antlerless deer hunting from November 26 through December 13 and December 24 through December 27. Applications must be received by the DNR before the close of business on Aug. 23, 2008.
The 2008 limited resident antlerless deer season will provide an opportunity for 650 residents to participate on the six WMAs.
For complete information on antlerless deer season dates and bag limits, consult the 2008-2009 Hunting and Trapping Regulations Summary, which is available at West Virginia hunting and fishing license agents, DNR offices and online at www.wvdnr.gov.
