Purchase Extra Buck stamp prior to WVA opener Nov. 21

From West Virginia Division of Natural Resources

-- Hunters can harvest an additional buck with the purchase of the appropriate stamp prior to West Virginia’s traditional antlered buck gun season which opens Nov. 21.

Resident hunters should purchase the Class RG stamp prior to the beginning of the season; the cost is $21.  The RG stamp must be accompanied by a Class A and BG, A-L, AB-L, X, XJ or free license.

Resident landowners have the privilege of harvesting the extra buck without purchasing the RG stamp if they are hunting on their own property.

Nonresident hunters wanting an extra buck must purchase an RRG stamp prior to the beginning of the season, and the cost is $43. The RRG stamp must be accompanied by the Class E or XXJ license.

Nonresident hunters who own land in West Virginia are not exempt from purchasing a license or the extra buck stamp, even if hunting on their own property.

Many counties are open to concurrent antlerless hunting during the traditional buck gun season.  Antlerless hunting starts on Nov. 21 on private land in open counties and Nov. 23 on public land on open wildlife management areas.

Hunters should consult the 2011–2012 Hunting Regulations and Summary for specific antlerless deer regulations in each county and WMA, online at
