Online hunter match program possibly on way out
Athens, Ohio - A pilot project begun by the DNR Division of Wildlife several years ago to match farmers and hunters could be on its last legs.
The project, huntohiofarms.com, was started at the urging of the Ohio Farm Bureau to match farmers suffering crop damage with willing hunters.
The Division of Wildlife recently drafted a letter to the Ohio Farm Bureau, telling it that huntohiofarms.com will likely go away if better results aren't achieved.
The Division of Wildlife has invested $10,000 in getting the website up, running, and maintaining over the past couple of years, said Mike Tonkovich, deer project leader for the Division of Wildlife.
"It certainly isn't a lot of money, but every little bit these days is important," Tonkovich said.
