Hunting

Choose from the following to find a site:


   

Hunting is allowed on the Monongahela National Forest.  All West Virginia Division of Natural Resources regulations govern hunting regulations on Forest. There may be special seasons and regulations in the state designated Wildlife Management Areas. For a map and information about wildlife management areas, click here.

We would like to bring one regulation directly to your attention for safety for all recreationalists.

  • Do not shoot a firearm within 400 feet of a school, church, or within 500 feet of a dwelling, or near a park or other place where persons are gathered for pleasure.  Some examples would include:  Campgrounds, Picnic Areas, and trails.
