2005-2006 West Virginia Migratory Bird Hunting Regulations


  The 2005-2006 West Virginia Migratory Bird Hunting Regulations are now available online at under “Hunting Regulations,” according to Curtis I. Taylor, Chief of the Division of Natural Resources Wildlife Resources Section. The regulations have been sent to the printer and paper copies should be available at DNR district offices and license agents soon.


  “Waterfowl seasons are set each year based on data collected during surveys and on other biological information. A vast amount of data are collected, compiled, and analyzed quickly for all of North America . These regulations require federal approval,” said Taylor.


  Finally, waterfowl hunters are reminded of two important toll free numbers. Federal waterfowl stamps may be purchased with a credit card by calling 1-800-Stamp24 (782-6724). Hunters who harvested a banded bird may call 1-800-327-Band (2263) to report the bird and to find out when and where it was banded.
