West Virginia's Spring Turkey Season Opens Monday


West Virginia’s spring turkey season begins Monday and location could be a factor in a hunter’s success.

The Division of Natural Resources says 2013 brood reports indicate that the statewide number of turkeys killed could drop. But hunters in the western and central mountains could have a better season.

The DNR says brood reports statewide were slightly lower than the five-year average. But brood reports for the central and western mountains were almost double from 2012.

The spring turkey season begins Monday and runs through May 23.
