Harvest up for local, state bowhunters

Bow hunters have had an opportunity to be in the field and woods the past seven weeks now. Through the first six weeks of the season, the harvest has been up in Limaland and statewide. Part of that may have been the usually warm weather we had in late September and for much of October. Comparing numbers can be a bit confusing since a variety of factors can play a role. For instance, the first six weeks of reports by the Ohio Division of Wildlife (DOW)the season this year was released on Nov. 7. Last year, the first six weeks harvest was reported on Nov. 1.

In the nine-county area, 2,118 deer have been checked compared to 1,644 checked in the first six weeks a year ago. This year, 966 antlered and 1,152 antlerless deer have been checked while during the first six-weeks of last year’s season, 601 antlered and 1,043 antlerless deer were checked. Statewide, 17,303 antlered and 20,450 antlerless deer have been checked through the first six weeks this year compared to 11,745 antlered and 17,601 antlerless in the first six weeks of last season.

Looking at numbers locally through the first six weeks, the county breakdown is: Allen 123 antlered, 140 antlerless and total of 263; Auglaize 95 antlered, 125 antlerless and total of 220; Hancock 139 antlered, 126 antlerless and a total of 265; Hardin 109 antlered, 133 antlerless and a total of 242; Logan 205 antlered, 265 antlerless and a total of 470; Mercer 63 antlered, 91 antlerless and a total of 154; Putnam 88 antlered, 99 antlerless and a total of 187; Shelby 94 antlered, 121 antlerless and a total of 215; and Van Wert 50 antlered, 52 antlerless and a total of 110.
