When is buck hunting available?
Our buck hunt season runs for three months each year, starting September 1 and ending December 1. Our season can expand when the herd shows promise, so contact us about other possible dates. Hunting slots fill up early, so reserve your place well in advance to avoid disappointment. We will be glad to discuss private retreats and other outdoor recreational opportunities with your group. West Virginia provides year-round activities for outdoor enthusiasts.
