Antlerless Hunting Loosened for 2012

West Virginia deer hunters will have plenty of opportunities to kill a deer this fall, those may not necessarily be opportunities to kill a buck, but the antlerless hunting restrictions in West Virginia have been dramatically adjusted from previous years.

The state’s Natural Resources Commission gave final approval to the new deer hunting regs during their regular meeting on Sunday.

The most significant change in the regulations is a requirement hunters kill a doe in counties where the deer population is highest BEFORE they are allowed to take a SECOND buck. The change impacts the extra buck for both the firearms and archery hunting seasons. It’s the first time West Virginia has tried a regulation described as “earn a buck” in other states.
