Observatory deer hunt scheduled in W.Va.

— GREEN BANK, W.Va. (AP) — Hunters can apply for a controlled deer hunt at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory site in Green Bank.

The Division of Natural Resources says a drawing will be held for the hunt, which will be conducted in four areas on Oct. 17 and 18. Applications are due by Aug. 1 and are available at DNR district offices or at the observatory.

The hunting areas will be designated for bow, muzzleloader and shotgun, or muzzleloader only.

The maximum limit is one doe per day. Five hunters also will be selected from a lottery to hunt for deer of either sex. These deer don’t count toward the hunters’ annual limit.

Participants must have hunting licenses or have exemptions from purchasing them. Deer must be taken to a checking station on site.
