WANTED: Owners of West Virginia Big Bucks

ROANOKE, W.Va. – The West Virginia Wildlife Federation, the Division of Natural Resources and Toyota are seeking hunters who own trophy white-tailed bucks that were legally taken in West Virginia with either bow or gun and have a Pope & Young or Boone and Crockett score of 150 or greater. The purpose of this search is to establish a West Virginia Big Buck Display at West Virginia’s Celebration of National Hunting and Fishing Day, September 25 - 26, 2010, at Stonewall Resort State Park near Weston in Lewis County. This is the largest event held at a West Virginia state park, attracting thousands of visitors annually. Toyota has been the primary sponsor of the West Virginia Big Buck Display at National Hunting and Fishing Days for the past three years.

Interested hunters who have qualifying head or antler mounts should contact Keith Krantz at 304-637-0245 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. for additional information or a registration form. Additional information and registration forms may also be found on the West Virginia Big Buck Display Web page at www.wvdnr.gov/hunting/wvbigbucks.shtm.

Participation will be limited to the first 30 qualifying trophy entries received. As an incentive for participation, hunters who display their trophy deer at the two-day event will be entered into an exclusive drawing for several valuable prizes.
