Public Meetings Set on Newly Proposed W.Va. Hunting Regulations
West Virginia residents will have an opportunity this month to review and comment on the state's proposed new hunting, trapping and fishing regulations.
The Division of Natural Resources has scheduled 12 public meetings across the state on the regulations. They include 2015 regulations for white-tailed deer, wild turkey, black bear and boar, proposed 2016-2017 general hunting and trapping regulations and proposed 2016 fishing regulations.
The DNR says the public meetings also will provide information on the state's new electronic licensing and game check system.
Public meetings will be held March 16 in Fairmont, Princeton, Martinsburg, Milton, Flatwoods and Harrisville. On March 17, public meetings are scheduled in Glen Dale, Moorefield, Elkins, Fayetteville, Logan and Parkersburg.
