Licking County Archers Lead Ohio in Number of Deer Killed
Harvest numbers up nearly 4 percent in first six weeks of deer hunting season


COLUMBUS, OH - Ohio bow hunters killed 53,959 deer during the first six weeks of the state's archery season. According to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife, this year's early archery season harvest is 4 percent higher than last year's kill of 51,976 deer.

Pursuing deer with a bow continues to grow in popularity among Ohio hunters. The season started September 26 and will carry on through February 7, 2010.

Counties reporting the highest numbers of deer brought to check stations were: Licking - 2,334, Holmes - 1,969, Tuscarawas - 1,770, Coshocton - 1,451, Ashtabula - 1,348, Harrison - 1,278, Trumbull - 1,251, Stark - 1,204, Knox - 1,175 and Fairfield - 1,142.

The statewide deer population was estimated to be 650,000 in early October. Approximately 345,000 bow hunters are expected to participate in the statewide deer-archery hunting season.

Bow hunters harvested a total of 85,856 deer during last year's four-month Ohio archery season.
