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 www.wvhunt.com is Aug. 29.
