Hunters killed more than 56,000 bucks during West Virginia's two-week firearm season. That's up slightly from the 2012 season.
Jezioro says the number of bucks killed varied by region. The largest percentage increases were in the state's western counties, while kills decreased in mountain counties and in the Northern Panhandle.
The buck firearms season ran from Nov. 25 to Dec. 7.
