South Charleston, WV -(AmmoLand.com)- Hunters in West Virginia may now reprint their hunter education certification cards online.

Working with West Virginia Interactive and WV.gov, the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources (WVDNR) is making this new service available.

“This is a quick and convenient way for individuals to instantly purchase and print out their hunter education card,” said Lt. Col. David Trader, of the West Virginia DNR Law Enforcement Section. ”Currently, hunters must mail in an application and wait to receive their duplicate card in the mail. Having this service online allows individuals to receive their card and purchase their hunting license, all in the same day.” 

Anyone born on or after Jan. 1, 1975, must successfully complete a hunter education course before purchasing a hunting license. A hunter education certification card must be presented when purchasing a hunting license or you must supply the card number located on the certification card when purchasing online.

If you have already completed the hunter education program and need to reprint your hunter education certification card, please visit https://apps.wv.gov/dnr/huntereducation or www.wvdnr.gov. You will need to provide your first and last name, date of birth and last four digits of your Social Security number to locate your record. The fee for reprinting a card is $10.

If your card cannot be located online, you will be directed to contact the nearest WVDNR district office to get your replacement card.

About the West Virginia Natural Resources Police:

DNR Law Enforcement is the oldest statewide law enforcement agency, serving the citizens of West Virginia since February 1897. We have a staffing level of 123 Natural Resources Police Officers and 11 support personnel. Natural resource police officers are primarily responsible for the enforcement of the game and fish laws and rules. Officers in the section carry on a continuing program of Hunter Education and Boating Safety Education, as well as enforce laws relating to littering, forestry, state parks, environmental/solid waste, pleasure boating, and whitewater rafting. They also respond during times of emergency such as floods and other natural disasters, as well as assist the State Police during times of strife similar to the large coal strikes in past decades. Natural Resources Police Officers are the most visible of the division employees. A highly visible force of uniformed officers is a deterrent to violations of the natural resources laws.
