MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- West Virginia University properties, including the organic farm, dairy farms and arboretum, are among the sites that bow hunters can prowl during Morgantown's first urban deer hunt.
City Manager Terrence Moore announced the final list of properties Friday. The hunt begins Saturday.
Moore says land between White Avenue and an unopened portion of Conrad Place in the South Hills part of town may also be included.
The hunt is aimed at reducing the city's deer population, but it also benefits the needy.
Backwoods Taxidermy, a deer meat processing facility, will butcher the deer and wrap any venison that hunters donate. It will be given to soup kitchens and shelters for hot meals.Charleston, Parkersburg, Bridgeport, Weirton and Wheeling also allow urban hunts.
