GREEN BANK, W.Va.
Hunters can apply for a controlled deer hunt at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory site in Green Bank.
The hunting areas will be designated for bow, muzzleloader and shotgun, or muzzleloader only.
The maximum limit is one doe per day. Five hunters also will be selected from a lottery to hunt for deer of either sex. These deer don't count toward the hunters' annual limit.
Participants must have hunting licenses or have exemptions from purchasing them. Deer must be taken to a checking station on site.
