SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The number of bucks killed during West Virginia’s recent firearm deer season fell 25 percent compared to the 2015 period.

The Division of Natural Resources says nearly 46,000 bucks were killed during the two-week season that ended Saturday.

DNR wildlife resources chief Paul Johansen says high winds limited deer activity during part of the season.

Buck kills dropped in every DNR district.

Preston County had the most buck kills, followed by Randolph, Jackson and Greenbrier counties.
