DEER HUNTING SEASONS
Ohio has many different deer hunting seasons starting in early October and going through January of the next year. Each hunting season allows different hunting weapons (i.e. shotguns, low powered rifles, bows, pistols and muzzleloaders) and requires different hunting strategies.  Archery season is the longest and affords the best opportunity to bag a big trophy deer.  There is a bag limit which covers all of the various deer hunting seasons for the entire deer hunting year.  As in the past, your proposed bag limit this year includes only one antlered deer and may include several antlerless deer depending on the county you are hunting within the state. Check the hunting regulations to ensure you have the current and accurate information. The Ohio Division of Wildlife manages the whitetail deer population in Ohio and makes changes each year to the Ohio hunting regulations in order to maintain a viable and healthy deer population. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) announced the proposed 2017-18 deer hunting season dates in a News Release. The Ohio Hunting regulations are available online from the ODNR and where hunting licenses are sold.
