COLUMBUS, OH - The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife reminds hunters that the antlerless deer permit, new for the 2007-08 hunting season, is valid only in urban hunting units or Division of Wildlife controlled hunts after November 25.
The antlerless deer permit was valid in all 88 counties during the statewide archery season from September 29 through November 25. The permit may continue to be used in urban units and Division of Wildlife controlled hunts as they occur through February 3, 2008. Antlerless permits may not be used by gun hunters participating in the statewide deer-gun season, November 26-December 2 and December 15-16, or the statewide muzzleloader season December 27-30.
Hunters with questions about the new permitting system are encouraged to consult the 2007-2008 Ohio Hunting Regulations, or contact their local Division of Wildlife district office.
Hunters are reminded that only one antlered deer may be harvested in Ohio, regardless of season, method or zone.
