Hunters Must Use Electronic Game Checking System

Officials are reminding hunters that they must use a new electronic game system to report their harvested animals this buck firearms season.

The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources says hunters can report their game by using their DNR identification number and calling 1-844-wvcheck. 

They can also do it online at wvhunt.com or visit a hunting and fishing license agent. Hunters will get a 13-digit number that they have to write on a tag attached to the animal.

Lifetime license holders should already have a DNR number and can find it at www.wvhunt.com. People who bought an annual license will find their number on the top left corner of their card. People who don't yet have a number can get one at www.wvhunt.com.

Buck firearms season extends through Dec. 5.
