SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia hunters will have another option for going after wild boar starting Saturday.

That’s when the firearms season for wild boar opens. It runs through Nov. 1 and is restricted to Boone Logan, Raleigh and Wyoming counties.

The dates were announced by the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources.

The boar harvest has seen a slight increase in the past three years with an average of 49 boars being harvested during the firearm and archery seasons combined.

Because of declining boar numbers, gun hunters are restricted to an October firearms season.

Wild boar archery season has been underway since Sept. 27 and will run through Dec. 31.
