West Virginia DNR prepares for changeover to electronic licensing system effective Jan. 1, 2015

From Press Release
SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources (DNR) announces that Dec. 23 will be the last day in 2014 for processing lifetime licenses or permits. The last week of December will be used to prepare for conversion of records into the new electronic licensing system which becomes effective Jan. 1, 2015.

            After Dec. 23, applications for lifetime licenses and permits may still be dropped off or mailed to the DNR Headquarters, 324 Fourth Avenue, South Charleston, WV  25303, but they will be held until January for processing in the new system. Lifetime permits include the Class Y crossbow permit and Class Q permits.

            Hunters, trappers and anglers who buy their licenses online at www.wvhunt.com  or at an electronic point-of-sale license agent should not notice any difference when purchasing a license in 2015. The old-style paper license on which stamps for additional privileges were placed will no longer be available.
