Here are the best online resources and mobile applications for improving any West Virginian hunting experience:

1. HUNT App
A premium membership for the onXmaps HUNT app for West Virginia allows the user to search using more advanced criteria, such as the landowner's name. The HUNT app has the ability to save topography and bird's-eye views of any location so that it can later be viewed offline.

To avoid venturing into an illegal hunting territory, the HUNT app clearly delineates property boundaries. The app's accurate GPS allows hunters to log small game sightings, food sources, wallows, bedding areas, scrapes, and rubs. Hunters can also use the GPS to find their way back to a campsite or vehicle.

According to onXmaps, the HUNT app
has multiple platforms that can be run on a computer, phone, and GPS. The more programs purchased, the more information will be synced and the more effective the hunt can be.

2. West Virginia Department of Natural Resources Website
This official website for the Department of Natural Resources is a must-see destination for anyone planning a hunt in West Virginia. This site clearly outlines all rules and regulations, procedures to get safety certified, and how to get a hunting license. It also has a calendar that shows all vital dates, such as when hunting seasons start and end.
