SOUTH CHARLESTON, WV - With a variety of hunting seasons underway or approaching, the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources reminds big game hunters that successful hunters must field tag and transport their deer, bear, turkey or boar to a Natural Resources Police Officer or official game checking station for checking.

This is required of all hunters, including landowners. A summary of the checking requirements follows, but hunters should check the 2014-2015 Hunting and Trapping Regulations brochure at www.wvdnr.gov for complete details.

Deer: The unskinned carcass or the fresh skin and head must be checked before it is transported beyond the county adjacent to the county in which it was killed within 72 hours from when it was killed or 24 hours from the close of the respective season, whichever comes first. In Logan, McDowell, Mingo or Wyoming counties; however, the deer must be checked in the four-county area within 24 hours of the time of kill. Deer killed outside these four counties cannot be checked within these counties.
