Hunting season to begin in W.Va.

BLUEFIELD, W.Va. (WVVA) -- Monday marks the first day of hunting season in West Virginia.

Hunters from across the area headed to their local stores to get some last minute necessities.  Store shelves are stockpiled with essentials that hunters need while out in the woods.  

Even though bow season has been in effect since October, hunters say they are excited to hunt for big bucks. 

"You have to watch a lot of deer walk by with a bow because they don't get close enough, so with a rifle you have a better range, and so if you do see that big buck, you might not have to watch him walk away.  You can shoot him," says Ron Dart, an avid hunter.
