West Virginia Lawmakers Get To Enjoy Hunting Season

West Virginia lawmakers like to hunt, too.

Some legislators took a break from their duties at the Capitol and joined hundreds of thousands of hunters statewide in taking part in the state's firearm deer season.

Mercer County Delegate Marty Gearheart spent three days in the woods on a friend's family property. Gearheart shot a 7-point buck, which then ran to where his friend was hunting. His friend finished off the kill. Gearheart says he let his friend keep the buck.

Rain and foggy weather hampered the first three days of the hunt, which began last Monday.

Greenbrier County Sen. Ron Miller says he doesn't hunt anymore
but his job now is to make breakfast for family members and friends
who are coming back from hunting on his farm.
