Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- Hunters in West Virginia are setting their sights on deer.
The state's buck gun season opens Monday in all counties except Logan, Mingo, McDowell and Wyoming.
The Division of Natural Resources expects 280,000 licensed hunters will hit the woods this season, helping to fuel an annual economic boost of about $233 million.
Each hunter can bag two bucks over the next two weeks.
The season ends Dec. 5.
