Ohio’s 2023-24 deer harvest highest in more than a decade, includes near record buck kill

With the Feb. 4 conclusion of Ohio’s extensive deer hunting season, participants enabled the final all-implements tally to enter the record books, achieving a total of 213,928 animals.
This is the second consecutive year that Ohio’s deer kill has surpassed the 200,000-animal mark, and the 12th time overall since 2002. This season’s count was the highest in more than a decade, with the summit being in the 2012-13 season in which 217,018 animals were tallied. Last year’s all-seasons deer kill was 210,977 animals.

Jeff Frischkorn: That weekend getaway in an RV doesn’t come without headaches

Having given up on Rving and RV ownership several years – and three units – ago, I do not miss one iota of the trials and tribulations of said products.
Not that I remain immune from keeping an eye on the industry and the goings-on of the so-called “RV Lifestyle.” And the best source – in my humble opinion – of that station of life is a frequent online blog produced by a full-time RVing couple.

186-year-old boat law leads to suspect’s arrest in fatal boating incident from Ohio

The federal government expects to use a 186-year-old maritime law signed by then-President Andrew Jackson to prosecute a suspect in a fatal Nov. 6, 2016, boating incident located about two miles off Fairport Harbor on Lake Erie.
At issue was the 2016 boating incident when, according to the U.S. Marshals Service, a motor vessel allegedly operated by Alen Gorishti collided with another boat that was at anchor.

Ohio’s deer harvest tops 203,000 as 2023-24 season nears its end

It’s nearly over for Ohio’s 2023-24 deer-hunting season, save for the last of the confetti dribbling down from tree stands and tossed out of field blinds.

With the conclusion of the four-day statewide muzzleloader deer season on Jan. 9, hunters added 12,712 animals, bringing the to-date total to 203,608 antlerless and antlered deer. Thus, about 95% of all the deer expected to be killed are already tallied, the venison stored in freezers and antlered racks at taxidermy studios.

Jeffrey Frischkorn: Fracking deal a swing and a miss for Ohio

A seasonal batting average of .500 in baseball is unheard of with the best-ever being then-Cleveland Indian’s Nap Lajoie’s .426 in 1901. Even the best that Boston’s legendary Ted Williams could muster was .406 in 1941.
Thus, a .500 batting average would be a monumental thing in baseball. However, in the world of conservation, a .500 batting average is still a swing and a miss.

Ohio pollution settlement on East Branch of the Chagrin River 16 years in the making

It took 16 years of legal wrangling and bull-headed determination by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and the Ohio Attorney General’s Office to right the environmental wrong done to the East Branch of the Chagrin River in Lake County’s Kirtland Hills Village.

Coast Guard making big changes on Lake Erie with two Ohio stations subject to at least partial closure

For boaters and boating anglers plying Lake Erie between Cleveland to Conneaut, Ohio, better know how to tread water for a good 90 minutes.
That is the maximum length of time the law allows for the U.S. Coast Guard to respond in case of an emergency. And given that the agency intends to moth-ball its seasonal Station Ashtabula Harbor and severely restrict operations at its Station Fairport Harbor, 90 minutes could be optimistic regardless of what Congress has mandated.
