SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. – -(Ammoland.com)- “The 2011 West Virginia Wildlife Calendars are now available for everyone to enjoy,” according to Curtis I. Taylor, Chief of the Wildlife Resources Section of the Division of Natural Resources.
“We apologize for the delay in distributing the calendars this year. We were expecting delivery from the printer by Oct. 20, but the printer has indicated that mechanical problems have kept them from delivering the calendars until now.”
The cover of this wall calendar features an outstanding painting of an adult bald eagle. Other paintings include a gray squirrel, a buck running through a stream, and an English setter with a ruffed grouse. A rainbow trout, hooded merganser, Eastern chipmunk also grace the pages of this large-format calendar. A brief description of the subject accompanies each painting.
Feature articles highlight white-nose syndrome, which is causing large-scale die-offs of bats; ruffed grouse hunting; and a biographical sketch of the late Tom Allen, along with 15 of his paintings which have been in the calendar over the years. The calendar also contains the 2011 hunting and fishing license fees.
“The calendar is full of interesting daily facts, best fishing days and times, and monthly helpful tips to help you fully enjoy the outdoors. Its $10 price tag makes it a terrific bargain and a great holiday gift. Everyone who enjoys and ventures into the outdoors will find it beneficial,” said Taylor.
