Hunting in West Virginia is a time-honored tradition in which the majority of
families have at least one member who participates on a regular basis. Each year
more than 350,000 hunters take to West Virginia's woods in search of some sort of
quarry. With this pursuit millions of dollars are directed toward the state's
economy, creating more than 5,000 jobs. West Virginia's hunting-related expenditures
for food, lodging, transportation, and equipment brought in nearly $270 million to the
state's economy. The economic benefit of hunting in West Virginia is especially valuable
because of the amount of revenue generated in our most rural areas. West Virginia hunters
harvested 3,160 black bears and 108,160 deer in 2017.
