WVDNR reminds hunters to buy stamps for buck firearms season by Sunday deadline

SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. — West Virginia’s two-week buck firearms season will open Nov. 21 and hunters who want a chance to harvest an extra buck must purchase their RG or RRG stamp before the season starts.

Resident hunters must purchase their Class RG and non-resident hunters must purchase their Class RRG stamp by 11:59 p.m. on Nov. 20. Hunters will not be able to purchase an RG or RRG stamp once the season starts. Stamps are limited to one per licensed hunter and may be purchased at WVhunt.com or at an authorized license retailer.

Resident landowners may harvest an extra buck without purchasing an RG stamp if they are hunting on their own property. 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.

Hunters are reminded that they are required to use their permanent DNR identification number to check in their game online at WVhunt.com, at a license agent or by calling 1-844-WVCHECK. All deer harvested on Nov. 21-22 in Barbour, Jackson, Mason and Upshur counties must be brought to a designated biological game examination station. For more information, check page 14 of the Hunting and Trapping Regulations Summary.

The buck firearms season will run through Dec. 4. For more information about West Virginia’s hunting seasons, visit WVdnr.gov.
