-- Applications for the 2011 Antlerless Deer Season are now available at all DNR district offices, the Elkins Operations Center and Charleston Headquarters.
Applications can be downloaded at http://www.wvdnr.gov/Hunting/PDFFiles/HUNTantPermit.pdf.
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.
Five wildlife management areas—Bluestone, Bluestone, Elk River, Stonecoal, Stonewall Jackson Lake and Teter Creek Lake—and public lands in Grant and Tucker counties will have a limited number of Class N licenses for West Virginia residents to hunt antlerless deer from Nov. 23 through Dec. 10 and Dec. 28 through Dec. 31.
Applications must be received by the DNR before the close of business Aug. 19.
The 2011 limited resident antlerless deer season provides an opportunity for 1,010 residents to participate on the five WMAs. An additional 250 residents will be selected to hunt antlerless deer on public land in Grant and Tucker counties that is restricted to resident hunters.
For complete information on antlerless deer season dates and bag limits, consult the 2011-2012 Hunting and Trapping Regulations Summary, available at West Virginia hunting and fishing license agents, DNR offices and online at http://www.wvdnr.gov/Hunting/Hunting.shtm.
