§20-2-42j. Class X resident hunting, fishing and trapping license.
A Class X license is a resident hunting, fishing and trapping
license and entitles the licensee to hunt and trap for all legal
species of wild animals and wild birds, to fish for all legal
species of fish except trout and to take frogs in all counties of
the state, except as prohibited by the rules of the Director or
Natural Resources Commission and when additional licenses, stamps
or permits are required. No additional fees shall be required of
Class X licensees for a Class CS stamp. To fish for trout, a Class
X licensee must purchase and carry a valid Class O stamp or Class
O-L license. The Class X license shall be issued only to residents
or aliens lawfully residing in the United States who have been
domiciled residents of West Virginia for a period of thirty
consecutive days or more immediately prior to the date of their
application for a license. The fee for the license is thirty-three
dollars. The portion of the Class X license fee equal to the
annual fee for the Class CS stamp shall be designated as
conservation stamp revenue and expended pursuant to section nine,
article two-b of this code. This is a base license and does not
require the purchase of a prerequisite license to participate in
the activities specified in this section, except as noted.
