Wetland at Hillcrest WMA

Hillcrest WMA (2,212 acres) Hancock County. Located off state W.Va. Route 8 on Middle Run Road. Topography ranges from flat bottomlands to rolling uplands with elevations ranging from 1,000 to 1,280 feet. The area primarily consists of old fields, orchards, croplands and scattered woodlots. The abundant farm game habitat provides excellent hunting for ring-necked pheasant, rabbit, turkey, mourning dove and deer. Squirrel and grouse populations are limited due to the small percentage of forested cover. Camping and open fires are not permitted. Tomlinson Run State Park, located 1.5 miles southwest of the area, offers camping facilities for a nominal fee. A 100-yard shooting range, which is accessible to the physically challenged, is located on the area. Owned and managed by the WVDNR.
