I think a few deer were killed in Logan over 190" this year. I saw one picture at Uncle Bill's gunship in Williamson, WV over thanksgiving.

Is WV doing any different kind of deer program as of late? Antler restrictions? Clear Cutting? Food Plots? I've heard a lot about them in the last couple of years.

Scott most of the big deer you hear about from WV come from within 4 counties which are bow only. Very mountainous large stripmine areas and without a 4 wheeler nearly impossible to hunt.

truehitter you are right I do know people who can drive close to where they hunt in fact my wife is from Mcdowell county around Iaeger and her family still lives there I do go there at times but do not do a lot of hunting there. I have gotten to old and have had a couple of heartattacks so I mainly hunt close to home here. And yes there are several people from there that come up here to hunt. But you did say one key thing some people do hunt down there year round and a lot of the deer taken there not all but some should be checked out for gunpowder traces before the arrow was stuck in and yes I know it happens.

Beleive me, years ago, you never saw any big bucks in Mingo, logan, McDowell, or Wyoming County. I grew up in this region and all my family is near Mingo. But as soon as they eliminated the guns, and let them grow, and let nature manage the herd, big, big deer started showing up. Not too many people have food plots, and alot of strip mine land was reclaimed, but I don't believe that has much to do with it. I spend some time on top of these reclaimed strip mines shooting and 4-wheeling, and never see monsters on this land. Only in the woods.

Thanks truehitter I appreciate that I extend the same but I will tell you it is very hard to find permission here in Monroe. I have a small patch behind my house I hunt as it is close and it has been a really good year for me as I took 6 deer 3 bow 3 gun but the only reason for that is a lack of food in the woods for them and I have a small food plot .
