Controlled deer hunt set at Green Bank Observatory

A controlled deer hunt will be held at the Green Bank Observatory in Pocahontas County this fall.

The Division of Natural Resources says in a news release the hunt for state residents only will be held on Oct. 11 and 12. A limited number of permits will be issued to hunters who enter a lottery.

The first day of the hunt will be for bow or crossbow only, and the second is a muzzleloader hunt.

The deadline for hunters to apply at is Aug. 29.
