Ohio's Young Hunters Productive During Special Two-Day Deer Hunt

Young hunters across Ohio again enjoyed success during the seventh annual Youth Deer-Gun Season, held Saturday and Sunday, November 20-21, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), Division of Wildlife. Hunters, aged 17 and under, harvested 9,024 deer during the special two-day season, as compared to 9,331 last year.

Counties reporting the greatest number of deer killed were Tuscarawas-434, Knox-416, Holmes-337, Washington-274, Licking-267, Guernse yand Harrison-265, Belmont-222, and Ashland and Coshocton-196.

The Division of Wildlife estimated 40,000 young hunters took to the state's fields and forests during the two-day season, which provides a high-quality hunting experience for younger Ohioans.

The youth deer-gun season was open in all 88 counties. All participants were required to wear hunter orange, possess a valid Ohiohunting license and special deer permit, and be accompanied by a non-hunting adult.

The youth deer-gun season is one of four special youth-only hunting seasons designed to offer a safe and excellent early hunting experience for young hunters. Special days are also set aside for upland game, wild turkey and waterfowl hunting opportunities.

Youngsters and all other hunters will have a chance at taking a whitetail during next week's statewide deer-gun season, which runs Monday through Sunday, November 29-December 5.

Details on youth hunting opportunities and all Ohio deer hunting seasons can be found in the 2010-2011 Ohio Hunting Regulations, available where licenses are sold. It can also be viewed online at wildohio.com.
