The DNR has expanded the fall's antlerless deer season, more commonly known to hunter's as doe season, hoping to curb an exploding population in most rural areas of West Virginia.

The DNR predicted 90,000 doe would be killed during the 2001 season, but the tally fell short at about 69,000.

The deer population is extremely high in the western and northern part of the state.

The doe season has been expanded to 22 days in 40 counties. Last year it was 12 days in 38 counties.

It will be a split season, running concurrently with the buck gun season from November 25th to December 7th, then resuming December 9th through December 14th and December 25th through December 28th.

Hunters are allowed to kill up to four doe deer per antlerless season, but cannot kill a buck and a doe on the same day.

Hunters should refer to West Virginia Hunting and Trapping Regulations for details.
