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.

Little Canaan WMA (3,168 acres), located near Davis in Tucker County, was acquired from the Canaan Valley Institute (CVI) with monies generated from the sale of hunting and fishing licenses, and funds from the West Virginia Outdoor Heritage Conservation Fund. The property is accessible from the Camp Seventy Road (CR 32/18) as well as from State Route 32. The WMA is primarily forested and provides hunting opportunities for deer, bear, grouse, woodcock and turkey. With its proximity to the Canaan Valley region, this WMA provides a unique diversity of habitats, including the “Little Canaan” wetland complex. Additionally, approximately three miles of the Blackwater River run through the WMA, providing fishing for trout, rock bass and other species. A physically challenged fishing pier is located on the Blackwater River with access from the Camp Seventy Road. Additional information on the Little Canaan WMA is available from the DNR District 1 Farmington Office at 304-825-6787.
