WVDNR to set up biological exam stations in Mason County

ALUM CREEK, W.Va. — The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources reminds hunters that adult deer harvested Nov. 20-21 in Mason County must be brought to an examination station for carcass examination by DNR personnel.

“Data collected from the deer will help DNR biologists to better manage the deer population for future generations,” said Gary Foster, Wildlife Resources Section assistant chief. “This action is necessary to increase our ability to gather deer physical characteristics and age information and make efficient use of our personnel at these examination stations during a period of peak deer harvest.”

DNR personnel will be at five locations between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. to conduct examinations. Hunters must still check their deer by telephone, internet or at a license agent, using their DNR ID numbers. Hunter cooperation is essential to the success of deer management, and all hunters are encouraged to have a safe and successful deer firearm season.
