It's fall wild turkey season in West Virginia.
Officials with the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources expect the harvest will be similar to or slightly higher than last fall hunting season.
Game management heads say wild turkey flocks will tend to concentrate near available food sources and make them more
available to hunters.
The season began Saturday in 33 selected counties.
Fourteen traditional fall hunting counties will be open for a four-week season, seven counties will have a two-week season, and 12 counties will have a one-week season.
Only one turkey may be taken during the fall hunting season with
either bow or gun.
It is illegal to use electronic calls or to hunt with the use of bait.
