If you’re looking to do some West Virginia turkey hunting this spring, this is your one-stop shop for population numbers, harvest info, and hunting opportunities.

In 2013, 10,974 birds were checked in — a total 32 percent greater than the 2012 tally, and 13 percent over the five-year average. Favorable weather, good 2011 poult production, and a low kill in 2012 (which caused more carry over birds to exist) all contributed to the upward thrust of the harvest. Indeed, every district and 52 out of 55 counties reported higher harvests, and the overall harvest was the highest since 2006.
