Ohio expands hours of youth deer-hunting season

Youngsters took almost 9,200 deer last year


COLUMBUS — Ohio is slightly extending the hours during which young hunters can take white-tailed deer during the two-day season this weekend.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says youngsters can hunt deer from 30 minutes before sunrise to 30 minutes after sunset on Saturday and Sunday. The hunters must have a hunting license and a deer permit. They’re required to wear hunter orange and be with an adult who isn’t hunting.

Last year, young hunters checked nearly 9,200 white-tailed deer during the two-day season.

The bag limits are set county by county.
