Can any beasts from WV tell me anything about Coopers Rock State Forest?

I am about 15 minutes from there right now :lol: I hike there some but have never hunted it, I know some guys that do with little luck, they aren't beast members tho 8-) I've seen trail cam pics of some bucks in there and it holds good deer, just hard to get away from the hikers. I may put some more time in it this year because it's close to where I work. Sorry I can't help much other than that info.

I have some friends that hunted it in college, and have killed some deer. Nothing huge, but I know they saw good bucks and got some good ones on trail cam. I think there are some bears also. I have never been there. The DNR has really good maps on their site and some good info, the state wildlife manager could tell you more.

I am sure it is a popular destination being close to WVU, Morgantown.
Some do. Some don't. I just might...

I hiked up there a lot. I worked at the University Forest for a bunch of years when I was going to school at WVU. I never saw a ton in terms or deer but I didn't spend a mess of time hunting up there. If I knew what I knew now I might tell you different. Cool area though.

There are some good deer up there, but you have to hike to find them. The good thing is that It is a giant piece of ground, so you can get away from people as long as you get off of the trails.
Anything worth doing, is worth over doing.
