Take Action Today! West Virginia sportsmen should use the Sportsmen’s Alliance Legislative Action Center to contact their legislator immediately. Let them know that controlled hunts provide recreational hunting opportunities for sportsmen, and help manage wildlife in sustainable and responsible manner, including in Chief Logan State Park.
In West Virginia, a state-approved controlled deer hunt in Chief Logan State Park is under attack by anti-hunters. The group is working to persuade legislators to put pressure on the West Virginia Department of Natural Resources to cancel the hunt. The state uses the controlled hunt to prevent over population of deer. The park is located 50 miles south of Charleston, the state capitol.
While the department has held firm in its support for the hunt, it’s important that sportsmen contact their state officials to show support for the hunt and the scientific management of wildlife in West Virginia. It’s essential that legislators are not led to believe that there is more opposition to the hunt than support.
