Where Hunting Happens, Conservation Happens™

West Virginia State Big Game Records

John Denver said the state was almost heaven, which it might be if you like whitetails and bears


Hunting for English Sparrow, skunk, and pigeon is open year round in the Mountain State, but that doesn’t mean big game hunters should pack up their gear and go home. Deer hunting is robust with more than 100,000 deer being taken there in 2021 alone. That translates into about 30 percent of hunters filling their tags each year. For the big bone hunter, the past couple of decades have been pretty good. Black bear hunters have been spoiled as well. Numerous bruins have been added to the records in the past 15 years. Still no trophy category for skunks, though.
