SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources says two new wildlife management areas have been opened to the public.
The nearly 3,200-acre Little Canaan Wildlife Management area in Tucker County was acquired from the Canaan Valley Institute. The land is mostly forested, and it provides hunting opportunities for deer, bear, grouse, woodcock and turkey.
The Sideling Hill Wildlife Management Area covers about 2,500 acres in Morgan County. The heavily forested property was the site of a hunting club before being acquired by the state. It will be managed for forest game species such as deer, turkey and squirrel.
