A BILL to amend the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, by adding thereto a new section, designated §20-2-46n, relating to establishing a primitive weapons deer season; and providing for the issuance of a primitive weapons deer hunting license.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended by adding thereto a new section, designated §20-2-46n, to read as follows:
ARTICLE 2. WILDLIFE RESOURCES.

§20-2-46n. Class Y resident and Class YY nonresident primitive weapon deer hunting licenses.

A Class Y license shall be a resident primitive weapon deer hunting license. A Class YY license shall be nonresident primitive weapon deer hunting license. A Class Y and YY license shall entitle the licensee to hunt for and kill deer with a primitive weapon during primitive weapon deer seasons in the several counties of the state, or parts thereof, excluding Logan, McDowell, Mingo and Wyoming Counties, as established by the Natural Resources Commission in section seventeen, article one of this chapter. The director shall establish rules governing the issuance of Class Y and Class YY licenses as necessary to limit, on a fair and equitable basis, the number of persons who may primitive weapon hunt for deer in any special management area. There shall be a season of at least three days each year for the taking of deer with primitive weapons as authorized by the Director of Natural Resources.
Only primitive weapons authorized by the Director of Natural Resources may be used during primitive weapons deer season. The licenses shall be issued in a form prescribed by the director, are in addition to a Class A, Class AB or Class E license and are valid only when accompanied thereby. The fee for the Class Y license is ten dollars. The fee for the Class YY license is fifty dollars.



NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to
establish a primitive weapons deer season and to provide for the issuance of a primitive weapons deer hunting license.

§20-2-46n is new; therefore, strike-throughs and underscoring have been omitted.
