More than 9,000 deer checked during Ohio’s two-day gun season

COLUMBUS — Ohio’s hunters braved less than ideal weather conditions over the weekend and checked 9,228 white-tailed deer during Ohio’s 2016 two-day deer-gun hunting season, Dec. 17-18, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. During last year’s two-day December deer-gun season, 9,447 deer were harvested.

Hunters still have opportunities to pursue deer this winter. Muzzleloader season is Jan. 7-10, 2017, and archery season remains open through Sunday, Feb. 5, 2017.
