ALUM CREEK, W.Va. — Waterfowl hunters who wish to hunt from a shooting station in the controlled waterfowl hunting zone of McClintic Wildlife Management Area (WMA), located near Point Pleasant, must submit an application by midnight Aug. 12.
Hunting is by permit only on a portion of McClintic WMA during the October split of the waterfowl season. Hunters chosen in the lottery draw will be assigned an area free of charge and may bring one guest. A shooting station also is available for physically-challenged waterfowl hunters.
Hunters may apply online at www.wvhunt.com by logging into their account, choosing “enter lottery” on the individual’s home screen and choosing “2018 McClintic Duck Hunt.” Successful applicants will be notified by mail by the second week of September.
Selected hunters will be randomly assigned a day to hunt and must report to the McClintic WMA office before 6 a.m. that day. Applicants not selected may come to the McClintic office on the morning of each day’s hunt to sign up for an opportunity to hunt shooting stations not filled by selected hunters.
Consult the 2018-2019 West Virginia Migratory Bird Hunting Regulations for season dates and additional information. Migratory bird regulations will be available at DNR offices by early August and will be on the DNR website at www.wvdnr.gov.
