Depends on the county. In Gilmer Co. we had to just show a drawing of the outside dimensions of the house. No permit, no inspections.

So just went down there for a week with my father-in-law for gun season, my first time in WV (got a big doe, didnt see anything all week so settle for some meat on last day). I'm going to be honest, I'm not that impressed with the whole state in general. The people were nice and friendly, lots of woods and mountains, but it seem like the economy in general is dying no matter where I stop. Small towns, large cities, anywhere I look alot of the stores are out of business or run down. Lands are cheap, but northern counties are under CWD management. I do like that you dont need lottery for bear tags, but there just a sense of stagation in the air. The same feeling I get driving into Baltimore except its not as compacted. Obviously buying hunting lands in WV is not an investment, not like I'm planning to sell it in 5 years for a profit. Also after reading, it doesnt matter if you have lands, you still need to buy annual license (almost $200 for me) unless you're a landowner AND resident. Right now he's leasing land that's a 5 hours drive from our house in MD, in the long run the money cost is the same for licenses, gas, sleeping, etc...if you look at 10 years plan. Just my opinion. I'm sorry if I offended anyone. Just being honest with what I saw and how my FIL talk about how things been changing since he grew up there.

What’s your county? The area around NE WV seems to be ok, near Harpers Ferry and Shepherdstown. Grant County too. But much of WV is far from booming.

We are looking for a place near the border of MD so north east. Morgan County seem the nicest so far but my wife is against owning any land in area with positive Chronic Wasting Disease reports. My father in law has friends in Ripley Jackson County that he go hunting with every year, but I dont know how much longer he can make that 6 hours drive. I live in Carroll County Maryland, something within 2 hours drive would be ideal for him and me. We are now considering PA since there is also Elk and non-lottery bear tags. But same issue that large area of southern PA also has CWD reports....

I have lived right on the border of morgan/berkely county for 3 years now. The counties have a baiting ban because of cwd in the past but there are plenty of healthy deer around. Its also loaded with turkey and a decent bear population. Not sure what you do for a living but my wife who is an RN makes more here then she did in Carroll county. Martinsburg and Winchester area have several big manufacturing plants P&G ,Amazon, rustoleum, rubbermaid etc. We could live on 130 acres in carroll county with no mortgage but would rather stay on our little 10acre plot out here than deal with that rat race.

You wouldnt think so if you drive most of the back roads.

That 130 acres in Carroll county wouldnt be available would it?

Welcome to Appalachia, it always been that way.
