For the second year, West Virginia's antlerless deer hunt falls short of the projected kill needed to meet wildlife management objectives.

The Division of Natural Resources announced yesterday that state hunters killed 63,658 white-tailed deer during the antlerless deer season. That preliminary count is about 329 deer less than last year's total. It also falls short of 1999's record kill of 93,879.

DNR officials say killing appropriate numbers of female deer during the season can help sustain healthy deer populations and improve the antler size, body weight and overall physical condition of the animals.
