CHARLESTON - Hunters will have another way to hunt wild boar starting Saturday.
That's when the firearms season opens. It will run through November 2nd and was restricted to Boone, Logan, Raleigh, and Wyoming Counties. The number of boar harvested has decreased since the record high of 158 in 1955. Due to the declining boar numbers, gun hunters were restricted to an October firearms season.
The archery season has been underway since October 12th and runs through December 31st.
