DEER HIDDEN IN TREES

Hunting dates set for deer, other fall seasons

After Ohio’s spring wild turkey season closes in most of the state next Sunday, area hunters can turn their sights during the lazy summer months toward coyotes, feral pigs and groundhogs.

Or they simply can wait until fall.

The Ohio Wildlife Council recently set the calendar and bag limits for the 2017-18 hunting and trapping year. Whitetail deer, the driver of the state’s hunting engine, will be legal to archers Sept. 30 through Feb. 4, 2018.

The youth deer gun season is set for Nov. 18-19; deer gun season runs Nov. 27 through Dec. 3 and Dec. 16-17; and the statewide muzzleloader season is Jan. 6-9, 2018.

The season limit will increase from two to three deer in the following counties: Fairfield, Athens, Belmont, Carroll, Coshocton, Gallia, Guernsey, Harrison, Hocking, Jackson, Jefferson, Lawrence, Meigs, Monroe, Morgan, Muskingum, Noble, Perry, Tuscarawas, Vinton and Washington.

The season limit will decrease from three to two deer in Allen, Defiance, Fulton, Henry, Paulding, Putnam and Williams counties.

Hunters may take as many as six deer in a hunting year, though exceeding a county limit is illegal. Only one buck may be taken each hunting year.

Hunters who wish to get back onto wild turkeys can resume Oct. 14 and continue through Nov. 26, a period during which a single bird of either sex may be taken. Eleven counties have been added to the fall turkey hunt, bringing the total to 67. The added counties are Allen, Champaign, Crawford, Fulton, Hardin, Henry, Logan, Paulding, Preble, Putnam and Wyandot.
