Hunting in West Virginia is a time-honored tradition in which the majority of families have at least one member who participates on a regular basis. Each year more than 350,000 hunters take to West Virginia's woods in search of some sort of quarry. With this pursuit millions of dollars are directed toward the state's economy, creating more than 5,000 jobs. West Virginia's hunting-related expenditures for food, lodging, transportation, and equipment brought in nearly  $270 million to the state's economy. The economic benefit of hunting in West Virginia is especially valuable because of the amount of revenue generated in our most rural areas.

 

 

The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources fisheries management programs are designed to provide a variety of fishing opportunities and experiences for anglers. The DNR endeavors to develop opportunities that range from native brook trout creeks to musky streams and large river catfish, and from small impoundment bluegill to reservoir bass and walleye. These programs consist of efforts focused on coldwater and warmwater species management and their habitats. Research, stocking, public access development, regulations, and outreach combined with habitat protection, improvement, and restoration form the foundation of the state's management of the state's fishery resources
