West Virginia’s 2018 fall wild turkey season opens Oct. 13

SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. — West Virginia’s fall wild turkey season opens Oct.13. This will be the third year that all 55 counties will have a least a one-week fall season. It’s also the first fall turkey season where Sunday hunting is permitted on both private and public lands.

“Fall seasons are based on county specific spring gobbler season harvest, excluding the 14 traditional fall season counties,” said Mike Peters, upland game bird biologist with the Division of Natural Resources. “This year’s spring gobbler harvest was the highest in the past 15 years and is reflected in the increased number of counties that have a two-week season.”

Twenty-two counties have a one-week season, 19 counties have a split two-week season and 14 counties have a split four-week season.

During the fall season, only one bird of either sex can be harvested using a bow, crossbow or gun. Hunting hours are from a half-hour before sunrise to a half-hour after sunset. The use of electronic calls and bait is prohibited.

Refer to the 2018-19 West Virginia Hunting and Trapping Regulations Summary available at DNR offices and license agents and online at www.wvdnr.gov for details.
