wEST VIRGINIA DEER ASSOCIATION
The West Virginia Deer Association (WVDA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of WV's deer herds through education, conservation and the promotion of quality hunting opportunities for all West Virginia hunters. The WVDA was established in December of 2021 by a committed group of deer enthusiasts from all over the state with the goal of creating a unified voice for all of West Virginia's deer hunters, regardless of method. The WVDA Board of Directors includes a representative for each of the six WVDNR Districts and adopts a quality minded approach to herd, habitat and hunter management as we consider future programs, advocacy and projects related to the core mission.
