SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The final split of West Virginia’s residents-only firearms and archery/crossbow seasons for wild boar will be open in Boone, Logan, Raleigh and Wyoming counties Feb. 3–5.

To hunt wild boar, hunters must possess a Class X, XP, X3, XP3, XS, XJ, AH+BG+CS, AHJ, AB-L, A-L or A+BG+CS license or be exempt from purchasing a license. To purchase a hunting license, visit WVhunt.com or one of 175 license retailers around the state.

Hunters may harvest boar of either sex, but only one boar may be taken in a year. Hunters also must electronically register their boar within 24 hours of harvest. Shooting hours run from a half hour before sunrise until a half hour after sunset. Use of dogs, bait and electronic calls are prohibited. All other counties in West Virginia are closed to wild boar hunting.
