South Charleston, West Virginia - West Virginia's 2014 archery seasons for white-tailed deer, black bear and wild boar open Saturday, Sept. 27, 2014. The bear archery season is a split season (Sept. 27-Nov. 22 and Dec. 8-Dec. 31).
In addition to a base license, bear hunters must purchase a Bear Damage Stamp (Class DS) to hunt bear in West Virginia. Two bear may be taken per year, provided at least one bear is taken in Boone, Fayette, Kanawha, Logan, McDowell, Mingo, Nicholas, Raleigh or Wyoming counties. Other than the Class DS stamp, no additional stamps are needed to harvest the second bear during the archery season except for non-residents hunting on the National Forest (Class I).
