COLUMBUS — Ohio’s young hunters checked 6,234 white-tailed deer during the two-day youth gun season, Nov. 23-24, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife.
Youth hunters were required to be accompanied by a non-hunting adult. Learning from an experienced hunter is key to developing the skills to successfully harvest a deer.
For complete details on deer seasons, see the 2019-2020 Hunting and Trapping Regulations or visit www.wildohio.gov. For summaries of past deer seasons, visit www.wildohio.gov/deerharvest. Youth hunting seasons are also available for small game, wild turkey and waterfowl.
