SOUTH CHARLESTON (AP) — West Virginia’s spring turkey season begins today and location could be a factor in a hunter’s success.
The Division of Natural Resources says 2013 brood reports indicate that the statewide number of turkeys killed could drop. But hunters in the western and central mountains could have a better season.
The DNR says brood reports statewide were slightly lower than the five-year average. But brood reports for the central and western mountains were almost double from 2012.
The spring turkey season begins Monday and runs through May 23.
