    there is no liscensing required in th state of wv. as is with every state you must have federal liscense to mount migratory birds, and any animals you take from customers must have legal check tags if they are required. other than that get the persons name, address, phone # when and where it was killed and you are pretty much good to go. i may have left a thing or two out accidently but thats pretty much the idea.
