CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (WBOY) — Several prizes are up for grabs in the fourth year of the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources lifetime license giveaway, including a weekend getaway at a state park.

According to a release from Gov. Jim Justice, one resident of West Virginia will win the free lifetime hunting license—valued at $805—and one non-resident will win a three-night stay at Pipestem Resort State Park in Mercer and Summers counties and two zipline tour tickets. Other prizes include state park gift cards, cabin stays and gift bags.

To be entered for the drawing in January, hunters and anglers just have to purchase an annual West Virginia hunting, trapping or fishing license in the month of December. After that, they will be automatically entered in the drawing.
