SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WBOY) — For hunters with disabilities and a Class Q hunting license, here’s a list of public roads in West Virginia open for hunting in national forests and state wildlife management areas (WMA).

The class Q license allows people with disabilities to legally hunt in certain areas from their vehicle as long as it is turned off. The license is available to those with permanent and irreversible respiratory, cardiovascular and/or lower extremity use limitations.

West Virginia Division of Natural Resources Director Brett McMillion said in a press release that the license makes it so that “everyone, regardless of their abilities, can enjoy the outdoors and the rich hunting outdoor heritage of Almost Heaven, West Virginia.”

The license gives hunters access roads to a total of 26 roads—13 in national forests and 13 in WMAs. In north central West Virginia, there are roads in Randolph, Tucker, Webster, Monongalia, Lewis and Ritchie counties. A full list of roads is available below. In order to gain access, hunters must be approved for a Class Q license and present their permit card at the appropriate national forest or DNR office to receive a letter of authorization and a gate key so they can utilize them.
