I have hunted WV and found that there are usually plenty of deer, mostly Tyler county.. I believe Hardy and Hampshire counties have some cwd issues, don't know how close you are to these areas.....

Only been into Greenbrier and Monogalia Counties. Deer at least to me seem to have pretty good size and are plentiful. Hope this helps though not in the area you are going into.

I have bowhunter bears in Raleigh Co. near Whitesville. There are lots of bears but from my experience not too many deer but I was hunting in the deep woods there. I have seen deer along roads in the fields. For the most part when a deer was taken by locals there are good sized deer and racks varied. I suppose because of where I was hunting the deer were oblivious to us and I suspect they didn't see human often. By the way CWD has spread from Hardy and Mineral and last year Hardy was hit with midge (EHD?) that killed many deer. Good luck.

Sorry for just stumbling on this site and seeing your post. I am from the general area and hunt in Wayne and Mingo counties a lot. Southern Wayne County and Mingo County are very much like Logan. Only difference is you can use a rifle in southern Wayne County.

If you are used to seeing deer every single sit, then this will be much different. You might not see a single deer, but they are there. Logan and Mingo are bow only counties and their are some very nice mature bucks in the area.

Also these deer are a lot more wild. Even a difference in hunting northern Wayne County vs Southern Wayne County. The north has a lot more population and farm land. In the south its bigger mountains (like Mingo/Logan Counties.) I hunt in places that wont see human foot prints until I go back.


These mature bucks can sniff you out from a mile away. Seriously, these deer are a lot more cautious and much harder to hunt. Having said that, there's nothing like it. To hunt trophy bucks in rough terrain is an incredible experience that every hunter should enjoy at some point of their lives.
