Ohio's youth hunters will again have several added opportunities to learn and practice their hunting skills this fall. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife offers several ways for families to hunt together and create lasting traditions in the state's outdoors.
Among the special seasons is a youth deer-gun season will be open statewide, November 22- 23. Young hunters age 17 and younger who are accompanied by a non-hunting adult may take one deer of either sex during this season, in accordance with existing bag and deer zone limits.
To participate in the upcoming youth hunts, all young hunters must be accompanied by a non-hunting adult, and must abide by all regular hunting hours and bag limits. A valid 2008-09 youth hunting license, along with the appropriate permits, are required. For complete details on all of Ohio's youth hunting seasons, visit this site:
