- Deer, Bear, Turkey Harvest Data Announced

White-tail deer image from the Virginia.Gov website Richmond, Virginia — While Virginia deer and turkey harvests reflected a decline from last year, the black bear harvest reached record numbers. Wildlife biologists with the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (VDGIF) have compiled the preliminary figures for the 2014-15 fall/winter hunting season. A bumper crop of acorns across the state coupled with management actions to meet population objectives and some higher than normal disease mortality all factored into fluctuations in populations and harvest trends.
