West Virginia Deer Harvest Up

The Division of Natural Resources says hunters bagged almost 66-thousand bucks during the two week gun season.
That's up nearly 16% from last year, reversing a three year decline.
A spokesman with the DNR says the increase is a sign that West Virginia's deer population is healthy and doesn't exceed the land's capacity.
Preston County saw the most deer harvested with 26-thousand.
The season was from November 20 through December 2.
