BUCKHANNON — Upshur County hunters took to the woods Monday, the opening day of firearm buck season, for a chance at that big buck.
The majority of the bucks are expected to come in at about 2 ˝ years old, according to wildlife biologist Rob Silvester.
“Last year’s season was awkward with the weather,” he said.
The first day of firearm buck season last year dawned foggy and rainy in contrast to this year’s clear morning.
The West Virginia Department of Natural Resources did a mast survey in August and statewide found spotty conditions, according to Silvester.
That means that deer will be on the move looking for food, and that is a good thing for hunters, he added.
