Deer-gun season expected to draw 420,000 Ohio hunters starting Monday

Associated Press


Ohio’s deer-gun season is expected to draw about 420,000 hunters this year.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Wildlife says the hunting week will begin Monday and run through Dec. 2. The season also will include an extra weekend of hunting Dec. 15-16.

Deer can be hunted with a muzzleloader, handgun or shotgun from one half-hour before sunrise to sunset during the season. The state encourages all hunters to take proper safety precautions, such as using safety harnesses in tree stands and wearing hunter orange.

Hunters also are encouraged to donate any extra venison to organizations assisting Ohioans in need.

The Division of Wildlife says hunting has an $859 million economic impact each year in Ohio through the sale of equipment, fuel, food, lodging and more.

Wait until next year when BO outlaws gun ownership. Just another industry going by the wayside.

I received my call today from hunters asking to hunt tomorrow. Problem is, they never cleaned up from last year. I had to pick up after them. I never heard from them for the entire year. No one helped to clean the trail, clear brush, cut and stack firewood, or offered any compensation. Yet, they call out of the blue and want to hunt on my land again. Yeah right...not in my lifetime. idiots! It is people like these that give hunters a bad name.
