West Virginia -(Ammoland.com)- West Virginia’s traditional buck firearms season begins Monday, Nov. 23, 2015.
The buck firearms season has opened the Monday before Thanksgiving every year since 1965. The timing of the season is a balance of hunting some of the “rut” (mating season) but still allowing for the annual renewal of the deer herd.
“Hunters should enjoy a great deer season in 2015,” said Paul R. Johansen, chief of the Wildlife Resources Section of the Division of Natural Resources (DNR). “Many carry-over bucks should be available from last year, and hunters can harvest an additional buck with the purchase of the appropriate stamp.”
Resident hunters wanting the extra buck must purchase the Class RG stamp before the beginning of the season for $21. The RG stamp must be accompanied by a Class A and CS, A-L, AB-L, X, XS, XJ, AH, AHJ or free license.
