Hunters Encouraged to Get ID Number Before Buck Gun Season

Scott Baue
U.S. Department of Agriculture

  Deer hunters are being encouraged to get their Division of Natural Resources identification number before West Virginia's buck firearms season opens.

Hunters will need the ID number to use the state's new electronic game checking system to report deer they have killed. Use of the electronic system is required.

The DNR says hunters can obtain an ID number online at www.wvhunt.com . They also can obtain the number from any license agent.

The buck firearms season will begin on Nov. 23 and run through Dec. 5.
