2009-2010 Controlled Hunting Opportunities:
General Information & Instructions[/center]


Applicants may apply online using Visa/Mastercard/Discover at wildohio.com. Mail-in applications are available by calling 1-800-WILDLIFE (1-800-945-3543). The ODNR Division of Wildlife conducts annual controlled hunts on a number of professionally managed areas that are not normally open to hunting. Participation is determined by computer generated random drawings.

The application period is June 1 through July 31. Hunters may apply for each area once annually. People who apply more than once per area risk disqualification and forfeiture of the application fee. Independent drawings will be held for each area and each hunt date. Application fees are non-refundable. If you are not drawn, you will not receive a refund.

Applications must be submitted in the name of an adult. If the same name appears on multiple applications, all applications will be disqualified and the fee(s) forfeited. You may participate in each controlled hunt only once per season as either the permittee or a partner. Drawings are held in early September. Results will be posted on our Web site at wildohio. com. Applicants not chosen to participate will not be notified.

Hunters chosen to participate will receive the necessary permit and instructions in the mail, including the date and location of the hunt. All participants must be properly licensed.

Deer Hunts
The special area permits described below give successfully drawn applicants permission to hunt on the corresponding area. Both "either sex permits" and the "antlerless only permits" may be used to tag deer taken while participating in all Division of Wildlife controlled hunts. Prior to the controlled hunt, all hunters must purchase or obtain the necessary license(s) and permit(s) in order to legally participate. Non-hunting attendants, where permitted, need not be licensed. Licenses are not sold at the hunt location! Bag limits and tagging requirements apply, meaning deer killed while participating in a controlled hunt count against your season bag limit. The new Hunting Regulations Booklet is due out in early August. Call 1-800-WILDLIFE (1-800-945-3543) with questions.
