Archery hunting season for Ohio white -tailed deer to begin, over 200,000 bow hunters expected


COLUMBUS — More than 200,000 bowhunters are expected to participate in Ohio’s popular white-tailed deer archery hunting season starting Sept. 28 and continuing through Feb. 2, 2014.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says that represents more than half of the Ohioans who will hunt deer this season.

Hunting hours are 30 minutes before sunrise to 30 minutes after sunset for all deer seasons. Archery season is open during the Dec. 2-8 week of deer-gun season.

The statewide limit is nine deer other than in controlled hunts authorized by the department’s Division of Wildlife. But hunters cannot exceed a county bag limit. Only one buck may be killed regardless of the county or hunting method.

All deer hunters must have valid Ohio hunting license and a valid deer permit.
